The table personalization dialog allows you to display and modify table settings. It is a UI pattern that defines the column order and visibility.
Position on the Screen
The dialog always opens in a modal window in the center of the screen.
For smartphones, stretch the dialog to fill the entire screen. For tablet and desktop devices, keep the modal window.
Layout of the Dialog
The table personalization dialog comprises the following five areas:
The table personalization dialog contains the following sections:
The header displays the dialog title and the Reset button to revert to the initial state.
The toolbar displays the Move Column Up and Move Column Down buttons, and the Search field.
The column list displays the available columns. The user can filter the selection using the search field in the toolbar.
Show or Hide Columns
To show or hide columns, the user selects or deselects the checkbox for a column (list item).
The user can also show or hide all columns with just one click. A checkbox on the left-hand side of the list header enables all list items to be selected or deselected.
Users can change the order of the columns in the table using the (Move Column Up) and (Move Column Down) buttons in the toolbar.
To change the order, click an item (not on the check box, but on the rest of the line), and click the button: Items on top are farthest to the left in the table, items on bottom are farthest to the right.
Users can search for or filter columns using the search field in the toolbar.
The search is a live search (also known as “search-as-you-type”), which is triggered by each character the user enters or deletes. For more information, see search.
To clear the filters, the user can delete all characters manually, or use the icon.
The list then shows all columns again.
The Reset button in the dialog header resets all settings to the initial state.
If the table personalization dialog is used together with variant management, the button resets the changes to the initial state of the selected variant.
