Filter name

Name of the filter displayed in the stack menu


Filter condition (WHERE clause)

If the field uses an Esri Domain or Esri Subtype, no condition is necessary but only the definition of the field name. The user will get the list of values defined by the domain or subtype.


If the field is a common attribute field then the condition has to contain a field name, an operator and an expression. (e.g. STREET = Bahnhofsplatz).



- The field name is case sensitive

- If the expression is a string (Text) use single quotation marks (e.g. Bahnhofsplatz)

- Every layer of the List of filter layers has to contain this field


Standard SQL operators can be used, e.g.

- STREET = My condition

- STREET LIKE My condition%

- STREET IN (My condition, my 2nd condition)

- NUMBER = 1

- NUMBER > 1 AND < 10

- NUMBER IN (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8)

- STREET = My condition OR STREET = My 2nd condition



It is possible to specify a parameter instead of a field value. Valid parameters are <param1>, <param2>, <param3>, <param4>. For details on how to specify these parameters see chapter Filter Parameters.
