I wonder if you can help.  What I’m wanting to do is filter out everything in the log files except for rows containing these items

$Item1
$Item2
$Item3


This would greatly simplify our pin pointing of issues, as I’m only interested in the 4 rows in sequence and the timestamps associated with them.

Thanks.

Hi,

LogViewPlus should be able to handle the scenario below by merging the filters. What you need to do is create three separate filters:
$Item1
$Item2
$Item3

Next, drag and drop each filter to create one ‘master’ OR filter. Once this is done, the original filters can be deleted. The process for doing this is shown here:
https://www.logviewplus.com/docs/merge_filters.html

Once you have created your OR filter, it is probably worth saving this as a template so it can be easily applied in the future:
https://www.logviewplus.com/docs/save_and_share_filters.html

Hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions or issues.

Thanks,

Toby

Glad to hear you got it working.

Thinking about it, I agree that the CTRL drag is not very intuitive. I will have a think about how this can be improved for the next release. I think the existing "merge file" command could be overloaded based on item selection.

Thanks,

Toby

I have hard time to do this as well. The example in the video works well (with levels). However, in my case try to combine text filters and for some reason the new filter returns nothing.

1) I create a text filter with "pattern 1" in the "Message" source. Selecting the filter shows the results as expected.
2) I create a text filter with "pattern 2" in the "Message" source. Selecting the filter shows the results as expected.
3) I drag and drop Pattern2 on Pattern1. This creates a filter named " 'pattern 1' in Message OR 'pattern 2' in Message". Selecting this filter returns nothing.

Selecting "Using original log entry" however works.

Control drag doesn't seems to work on my side as well (v2.3.1.0 evaluation). I am getting the following error while ctrl+drag a text filter over a level filter (like in the video):

"Invalid Template
The template you are trying to apply appears to be invalid. This is possibly due to an issue with a custom extension."

Suggestion :
- Dragging the filter could open a popup with 'AND' and 'OR' choices to make this more intuitive
- It would be nice to edit the filter after creation, like the invert option. That way you could easily flip an 'OR' for a 'AND' for example.

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback.

I can confirm that the first issue is a bug.  We will get the "joining message text" filters issue fixed for the next release. 

I am having trouble recreating the "Invalid Template" issue.  Is there anything more you can tell me about these filters?  What may help is if you copy the filters individually and post them on this forum.  That should let me recreate the issue more easily.  

You can create an 'AND' filter in one of two ways.  First, you can use CTRL+Drag Drop.  This will create a child parent relationship.  The Child in this case is effectively an AND operation with the parent.  Second, you can use CTRL+SHIFT+Drag Drop.  This will create a single filter with an explicit 'AND' join.  Similar to how the OR operations work.

It is not currently possible to edit joined filters beyond simple include / exclude operations.  I think it is a good idea to allow people to more intuitively build and edit filter relationships (joining filters with complex AND / OR operations).  I will add this to our enhancements list.

Thanks for reporting these issues!

Thanks for letting me know.  It makes sense that this was broken then fixed in v2.3.2.  The CTRL+SHIFT+Drag Drop operations are new in this release so there have been changes to this code.

I will post back to this forum when I have made progress on the other two issues you have raised.

Thanks again,

Toby
