Working in Listview




Here you can see the list of parties (normally we would refer to an address), but within Tryton, address refers to the postal address. You can sort by columns by clicking on the column titles.


Tool Symbol

The Tool Symbol is a menu with a list of actions. You can, for example, delete or export a record via the Tool-Symbol-Menu.



The Toolbar contains symbols for:

      • Create a new record (white sheet of paper with a yellow star)
      • Save record (Hard disk with an arrow)
      • Choose different view (four arrows pointing outwards)
      • Reload (arrows in circle)
      • load previous record (left-pointing arrow)
      • load next record (right-pointing arrow)
      • Add attachment to record (paper clip)
      • Launch action (square)
      • Open related records (downward-arched arrow)
      • Open report (printer with paper and star)
      • E-Mail report (printer with envelope)
      • Print report (printer)



Seasoned users write directly into the filter line in order to search an entry. Alternatively you can also use the filter button (see below)

      • If you just type in anything, Tryton looks for the field which the developers think matches the query best. You can also type the field name that you are looking for. Tryton will immediately try to complete the fieldname and you can click on it with the mouse. At the end of a field use a colon. After the colon you then write the keyword for your search. The search command:Name: "sbb" would search for all address-entries containing "sbb".
      • You can also use field queries in series to search in combinations. To do so you just add a space after the first entry and type in the name of the second field, which Tryton then tries to complete as well. 
      • If a term consists of several words you can write it between double quotes. You can also use mathematical operators. "Created on":>21.04.2015 would display all records created since the 21st of April 2015.
      • If you would like to search by a word fragment you can use % at the end. "Name: Mei%" will search for all names starting with "Mei".
      • If you want to exclude a character string, use the ! symbol. "Name: !Kapp" will search for all names NOT starting with "Kapp".


Filterline with Filter Key

To display a convenient search dialog, press the filter key on the filter line.

You can then enter what you are looking for in the search fields and click the find key.
