Adds a table field to the filter control for a table on filter page.


[Ok :=] FilterPageBuilder.ADDFIELD(ItemName, Field[,Filter])  


Type: Text

The name that is assigned to the table in the filter control. This value must match the value of the ItemName parameter that was specified by ADDTABLE, ADDRECORD, or ADDRECORDREF function that adds the table to the filter control.

Type: Field

The name of the table field to add to the filter control for a table.

Type: Text

A default filter on the field that is specified by the Field parameter.

Return Value

Type: Boolean

true if the field was added to the field list for the specified filter control; otherwise, false.


The filter control that specified by ItemName parameter must already exist in the FilterPageBuilder object before the ADDFIELD function is called. This means that either the ADDTABLE, ADDRECORD, or ADDRECORDREF functions must be called before the ADDFIELD function.

If the filter page implementation will call a SETVIEW function, then the SETVIEW function must be called before the ADDFIELD function call, otherwise the filter that is specified by the Filter parameter will be cleared by SETVIEW.

The filter that is specified by the Filter parameter will overwrite any previously defined filters for the field which were set by ADDVIEW function or read from the record or recordRef instance that defined the filter control.


The following example initializes a filter page object that includes a filter control for the Date system table. The filter control has the caption of Date record. The example adds two fields of the Date record variable which will be available in the filter control on the filter page: Period End and Period Start. A default filter is set on the Period End field.

This example requires that you create the following variables in the C/AL Globals window.

Variable name DataType SubType
varDateItem Text
varDateRecord Record Date
varFilterPageBuilder FilterPageBuilder
varDateItem := 'Date record';  
varFilterPageBuilder.ADDRECORD(varDateItem, varDateRecord);  
varFilterPageBuilder.ADDFIELD(varDateItem, varDateRecord."Period End",'12122015D');  
varFilterPageBuilder.ADDFIELD(varDateItem, varDateRecord."Period Start");
