Parameters

Keyword Type Description

choiceLabels

List of Text String

The list of text to be displayed to the user as the filter choices.

choiceValues

List of Variant

The list of values associated with the available choices.

Usage considerations

To use this function in your record type, see User filters for record types that use a web service.

Since users can save default selections for user filters, try to use expressions that rarely change the choices available. If users save a choice that is not available the next time they load the record, their saved filter selections will be cleared and a warning message will display.
