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 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 icon will open the tab at the end of currently viewed group of views
