[Solved] Visualise filters in the GUI

Is there a way or possibility to see that a filter is set without checking it in the filter screen in 'customise' in the Dollar Universe Desktop?
It can be dangerous that you miss things because a filter is activated, and you are not aware of it. All options are welcome, thanks in advance.

    Not in the application, no. But maybe there are ideas for programing a kind of program that checks on a regular base if a filter is set, and gives an alert.

    Hello,

    I don't think this can be easily done:

    - it requires getting the information on the pid of the GUI, also knowing that different windows can be opened and that the pid will change each time
    - it requires locating the information in Dollar Universe data files or in the registry and to parse it.

    I guess the good solution is more in the definition of a work process like "open a window, check the filter, set the new filter" etc.

    Hello,

    if you are using the GUI on Windows you have a small icon on the bottom right which is activated when you activate the filter... (it displays horizontal lines).

    Hope this helps,

    Michel
