wmView - Hit list

If several data sets are found for the entered search criteria, a hit list is displayed - for example when searching for earnings payouts of an instrument via ISIN or WKN without further search criteria like the ex-day. The hit list contains selective detailed information of the data sets.

Hit list of an income data search for ISIN 'SG1M77906915' with a total of 38 hits.

Besides standard elements like ISIN, abbreviation and WKN, also other specialised detailed information are displayed in the hit list, depending on the profile or work field. For space reasons it is possible that not all further detailed information will be displayed immediately, but they are available for the user via the comfortable WMACCESS Toggle function.

Toggle function (last column / exchange field information)

The Toggle function is opened by clicking on the last attribute of the hit list. Initially a selection window is displayed in order to exchange the current last column for another field information. As an alternative the keyboard shortcut [ALT] & [+] or rather [ALT] & [-] can be used in order to get to the next or previous field of information.

Activate selection window for Toggle function.

A click on the headline of the last headline column ...

The last column is replaced by another field.

... activates the window for the selection of the new information to be displayed, here ED005.

After using the Toggle function another information field is now displayed as the last column of the hit list.
