Summary0001332: Logbook Filter Pane Should Be Static Rather Than Dynamic
DescriptionThe filter pane in the logbook is implemented as a dynamic query pane, so every
time you open or close it, the entire logbook is apparently read. Also, the
filter queries are dynamic as well, so it's churning the logbook db with every
change made to data in the filter pane.

This implementation makes little sense. The filter pane should be static. You
should be able to open and close it without churning the logbook db. You should
be able to enter data and choose pull-down options without churning the logbook
db. When you want to run the filter, you should be able to click on an 'Apply'
or similar button to cause the query to be run.

This is a combo platter of issues.

I completely agree with the notion of an Apply button; that's implemented with the fix to 2128.

The issue of taking a while to open is gone; the code doesn't scan or reload the database when the filter window is opened.

The issue of taking a while to close is actually necessary: we have to reset from whatever filtered rows might be shown to the full set of rows when the filter bar is closed. Closing the filter window implicitly closes its effect, so that's by-design. The issue of performance, though ,is noted. The logbook uses an overly granular data structure and that makes building and tearing down even medium-sized logbook lists quite slow. That issue is tracked by 2197.

Marking this closed, as the primary issue (Apply button, not timer) is addressed by one of the related bugs. The other fixable problem is represented by a more granular issue, now related to this bug.

A huge improvement. Thanks

Just a thought. Could the ENTER key be used as well as the APPLY button?

Maybe some day. While it seems like a simple feature (hit this pushbutton when ENTER is pressed!), the implementation is hampered by the need to manage focus and routing in a complex structure of windows.

In the logbook in this state, the Apply button appears on the filter bar window, which ahs a few other controls in it. The bar is a child of a frame window, which has siblings (the logbook entry list itself), and is parented by the tabbed logbook frame window. That, in turn, is a child of the main frame window of the application itself -- which has more toolbars and panels inside of it.

When ENTER is pressed, which window should be offered the chance to handle it? Routing input isn't a simple problem, since we have to navigate all those windows, the UI state, and so on. It's certainly a solvable problem, but usually requires a pretty involved solution. I think it would be best to open a feature request issue separate from this issue (which is already decomposable into three or four more distinct issues) and address it as we have time and priority in the future.

Apply button fixes the issue nicely.
