Drop-down menus are used to select from a pre-existing set of data. Some drop-down menus will only load their data when they are selected. These menus may take a few seconds to display and may show a large amount of data. You can type directly into these menus to filter results based on what you type.

Table Controls

A Table Control is a custom display of a number of rows of data. These can be filtered for searching, and usually allow you to click on a row to view the record associated with the data (if the table is displaying records).

The buttons in the bottom right corner do the following:

  1. Expand – Displays the table in a full-page view for examining large tables of data
  2. Export – Downloads the table data in an Excel format
  3. Refresh – Refreshes the data contained in the table, to display updated results
