Abilities of the view

  2. Sort events by a particular column - click at a column header.
  3. Filter events by a given criteria - click filter icon Filter.gif.

View event details

To see all details about an event just double click at a desired event. There will be displayed a window which shows an event property and its value. The property names are displayed with a key used to store the value, instead of a human readable name. An example window with details is shown below:

Event filtering

Sometimes there are a lot of events shown and you are interested for example in a particular file, project or user. In this case you can sort events by the desired column and find the desired one. But the better solution might be to set an filter that the event view shows only events of your interest. It also filters all incoming events and they appear only if they fulfill the filter. Of course you do not drop other events if you use the filter. You can always reset it and all events are shown again.

To set up filtering rules click Filter.gif icon, which is available on the right side of the view title, next to minimize icon. There will appear a window as shown below:

All conditions must be met. You can use a '*' wildcard to match any character sequence. For instance the example above will accept only those events that are about a file CoronaTest.java, within any project or directory. After applying the filter (setting OK), the event list view that is shown in section Working with the view is limited to only three events:

Selecting columns to display

By default the displayed columns are: date and time of the event, user who made an action causing the event, type of the event and a resource which was a subject of the action. If you wish to add or remove any columns, just select a visibility check box in the filtering window (see section above) and click OK. The available columns are:

  1. date and time of an event,
  2. user who made an action causing the event
  3. type of the event
  4. URI of a resource which was a subject of the action
  5. name of the project
  6. type of the resource
  7. resource itself

You can also change order of columns by dragging column title to desired position. Column resizing is also possible.
