Working with views

This section gives a short introduction about how to work with views in KaDeck's record browser.


Views allow you to save configurations of your filters, your visible columns and codec settings for later use. You can create multiple views for each topic so you can easily switch back and forth to view different kinds of data based on your filter criteria.


Fig. 1 Multiple views for the topic financial_transactions. Default views are displayed in bold.

These settings are saved with every view:

  • Codec selection for key and value
  • Header codec (type) selection for each header by key
  • Attribute filters (active & inactive)
  • Search values
  • Attribute columns 
  • Hidden columns
  • Time windows

Manage views

Inside the record browser, click on the title bar "Default View: Default". The default view when viewing a topic is named "Default". The default view is the view that is automatically loaded when selecting a topic. 

Note: It is not possible to delete a default view. You need to set another view as default first in order to delete the previous one.

These options are available:

New View

A dialog will ask you for the name of the new view and all current settings will be copied to this new view.

Save View

All current settings and modifications are saved to the current active view. 

Delete View

Deletes the current active view and loads the default view for this topic. It is not possible to delete a default view. You need to set another view as the topic's default before deleting the previous default view.

Set View As Default

This option sets the current view as the topic's default view.
