New in MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 15 - Support for Wild Cards

MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 15 allows you to broaden the selection of a structured query language by using Wild Cards in Display Rules. This can be done by setting the string to (*/?) followed by the "like" comparison to filter out long lists and search the exact string.

Wild card characters are used to substitute one or more characters in a string. It helps you search for a specific pattern in a column. You can do so by adding conditions in the Display Rule in the Condition Editor Dialog.

Condition Editor Dialog is used to create and manage conditions for Display Rules. It hosts a variety of settings like, Add new Criterion, display available Item Types, Toggle between value and property comparison etc.
