An enumeration of how a string value should be matched. Matching a string is a boolean operation.
Given a string, a match term (string), and a match type, the operation outputs
the following cases:
- If the match type equals EXACT and the match term equals the string.
- If the match type equals PREFIX and the match term is a prefix of the string.
- If the match type equals ANY and the match term is a substring of the string.
This enumeration can be used in by a string filter control to decide which rows to filter out of the data table. Given a column to filter on, leave only the rows that match the value entered in the filter input box, using one of the above matching types.
To call an enum, you call its parent class, name, and property. For example,
|Match exact values only|
|Match prefixes starting from the beginning of the value|
|Match any substring|
