Sorting and filtering data (Webtrader)
Sorting and filtering options help in locating data. You can see these options when you hover over a column heading where information is presented as a table (sort left; filter right):
Note: In this procedure, the word ‘click’ refers to either a click or a tap.
Any data presented as a table (such as watchlists, positions, orders etc.) can be sorted by any column in that table. Just click or tap to the left of a column heading to sort the entire table by the data in that column.
If the data in that column is alphabetic, it is sorted alphabetically; if the data is numeric, it is sorted numerically. To reverse the order, (for example, to change from A–Z to Z–A), click or tap left of the column heading again.
Tables can be filtered so that only data that meets criteria you specify will be listed. More than one filter can be applied to a table.
To base a filter on particular data:
1. Click to the right of the heading of the column that has the data you want to filter. A filter box appears for you to enter your criteria. Depending on the data, the filter box could offer a list of options, a free-text field, or a set of fields for you to specify a range:
Types of filter: list, free-text, range
2. Select or enter the required criteria.
3. As soon as you enter the criteria, the table is redrawn. Click away from the filter box to close it.
Tip: The filter icon to the right of any column heading indicates that the table has been filtered. To cancel a filter, click or tap on the filter icon and select Clear filter. You may need to do this more than once if multiple filters have been applied to the table.
