An enumeration of how a string value should be matched. Matching a string is a boolean operation. Given a string, a match term (string), and a match type, the operation will output true in the following cases:
- If the match type equals EXACT and the match term equals the string.
- If the match type equals PREFIX and the match term is a prefix of the string.
- If the match type equals ANY and the match term is a substring of the string.
This enumeration can be used in by a string filter control to decide which rows to filter out of the data table. Given a column to filter on, leave only the rows that match the value entered in the filter input box, using one of the above matching types.
|Match exact values only|
|Match prefixes starting from the beginning of the value|
