- List - for all types
- Dropdown List - for all types
- After, Before, Between, Relative - for dates
- Between, Less than or equal, Greater than or equal - for numeric values
But... What if you have a need to filter a report by a single discrete value out of a large set of values? The List/Dropdown List isn't a very good option, and if it's dates, the range selection can be clumsy...
So with that said, I jumped right into building my own slicer. Requirements:
- Work with large set of discrete values
- Provide forward and backward paging
- Provide a thumb to drag
- Provide a text box for direct entry
This was the easy part. Next up, I'll write up the steps I took to put the feature together.
