Together with the objects names you can configure LEX to show any object attributes to be shown directly in the list
as additional columns:
The columns can be configured in two ways: By choosing the attributes in a menu or just by point-and-click on an attribute in the attribute panel of the LDAP browser main window. First let's see how you configure the columns by normal menus: The according options are accessible by choosing View - Column Field Chooser. Or you just open the context menu of the object list column header - just right-click on the column header.
There are several options in this menu. The first five entries represent important basic information for each object, which can be chosen directly to be shown as a list column or not:
The option More opens a dialog in which you can enter any attribute which should be shown
as a list column as well - or you can choose from a list of attributes which are valid to the current directory according
to the schema:
You can sort the list object according to each column just by clicking at the regarding column header. Click again and the objects will be sorted in descending sort order.
If you choose an attribute to be shown as a list column which is NOT present in an object in the list - then the information is just empty at the according row/column position. There should be no error message, even if you choose attributes for the columns which are not supported by every object in the list.
If you want to clear all columns which were configured in the More dialog, you just have to click on the More entry in the menu, and deactivated it.
You can save and load your sets of list column attributes with the Options Load Column Set and Save Column Set. The sets will be stored as normal text *.txt files containing the column attribute names. The column set files are stored in the subdirectory LDAPAttributeSets in your LEX profile directory. LEX shows all the text files which are found in this directory as menu options, so you can load a column set quite easily:
If you want to get rid of a saved column set, just remove the according *.txt file in the in the subdirectory LDAPAttributeSets in your LEX profile directory. By the way: The attribute filter sets and the column attribute sets have the same format and are stored in the same directory.
Here is another convenient way to specify an attribute to be shown in the object list as a column: Just open the attribute list panel. This is done by activating the menu option View - Attribute List or by pressing the Expand/Collapse the attribute list for the selected object button .
In the attribute list, just mark the attribute you want to be displayed as a column in the object list, open the context menu (right mouse-click) and choose the option Use Attribute as List Column (the same choice is also accessible in the View main menu).
