Grid Context Menu

Grid Context Menu

The grid context menu is available by right clicking on a row in the log entries grid. Note that the actions available in the grid context menu will change depending on the column where the right-click action occurred.

Instant Filter

1. Instant Filter

An "instant" filter is a filter which will be created without any further configuration. In this example the type of instant filter is a thread filter. Selecting this option would therefore create a thread filter at the level of the current log entry. For example, if the current log entry is at thread '5' then this command would create a new thread filter for thread '5'.

Note that in some cases, we may need to select where in the filter hierarchy the filter should be applied. Should we apply it to the log file? Or to the current filter? Or, perhaps, a child filter?

Filter After

2. Filter After

Reads the time of the currently selected log entry and creates a new Date Filter showing everything which occurred after that time.

Filter Before

3. Filter Before

Reads the time of the currently selected log entry and creates a new Date Filter showing everything which occurred before that time.

When two or more log entries are selected this command will determine the start and end time of the log entries and create a new Date Filter showing everything which occurred between the selected times.

Calculate Elapsed

Compare Log Entries

6. Compare Log Entries

If you have configured LogViewPlus to use a compare tool (like WinMerge) the Compare Log Entries command will open the two selected log entries using your configured tool. This is helpful for quickly determining the difference between two log entries.
