object.Filter = String
|Description:||CimBrowse.Filter is a string representing
the filter used for browsing. The specified filters will be the
default filters used when by the browsing dialog when it appears.
For example, a filter could be used to only display points from a
particular device or for a particular resource. The set of
available filters depends on the entity being browsed.
POINT Entity - POINT_ID, DEVICE_ID, RESOURCE_ID, POINT_TYPE_ID, DESCRIPTION, ELEMENTS, and ADDRESS
DEVICE Entity - DEVICE_ID, RESOURCE_ID, DESCRIPTION, PORT_ID
The filter string is composed by building a string containing the attribute name and the filter value. Filter values can use * and ? for filtering. Filters and their values are separated by commas, and filter pairs are separated by semi-colons. When a filter is set the user will be unable to change the filter in the dialog.
In the example below the browse will find all points starting with C for DEVICE_1.
