The Thread Filter Dialog and Logger Filter Dialog both look and behave in the same way. Therefore, both dialogs are discussed here as a single entity.
The filter query is used to define the filter. You can either manually type the filter query, or build it dynamically by selecting items from the 'Available Items' area.
If you would like to filter by data that is not currently available in the view, you can type this data manually. Alternatively, if you would like to filter by all available items as well as any new items which may appear, you can use the wildcard command '*' (as shown in the screenshot).
Select items from the Available Items area to build dynamically build the filter query. Note that the list of available items is populated by the current view. If some items appear to be missing, you may need to select a parent view.
By default, the filter query will be used to create a single filter. You can use this checkbox to indicate that you want to create a new filter for each matched item.
Most LogViewPlus filters allow you to specify whether they are include or exclude filters. Include filters mean, "include anything that matched the filter" whereas exclude filters mean, "exclude anything that matched the filter".
The apply command creates the configured filter.
