Multiple Result sets and View Functionality

    By performing query or opening a view in Instant JChem, a result set is created. Instant JChem supports distinguishing each result set by a coloured stripe at the bottom of the tab. There is currently a maximum of 12 colours supported.

    Any view for a given Data Tree that is open in the same result set will display the same records. For example if you run a query in Grid View and then open a Form View of the same Data Tree, it will show the same records.

    This feature could be for example useful for comparing results of 2 or multiple different queries on the same data. Other possible application could be querying in a Grid View, then opening a Form View that shows only some fields that are needed; and printing a report from that view without a need to re-apply the query.


    If you click images/download/attachments/1804871/OpenDisconnectedDFViewAction.png icon in the right side of the open form, the same form will open in a new tab with an independent result set (containing the same data) that you can manipulate.

    The behaviour can be described in the following way:

    • Opening new view in the same Data Tree will open with the last result set that was viewed

    • Creating a new view in the same Data Tree will open with the last result set that was viewed

    • Opening of a view with different result set by clicking the images/download/attachments/1804871/OpenDisconnectedDFViewAction.png icon will open the tab at the end of currently viewed group of views

    Data Age toolbar

    The toolbar exhibits the elapsed time in HH:MM:SS format since the data was loaded into the current Resultset. Pressing F5 to reload the data will reset the timer. By default, the toolbar is disabled, but it can be activated by navigating to View > Toolbars > Data Age.
