BDC Default Items In Filter Drop-Down

  Asked By: Domonique    Date: Sep 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1996

I created a BDC web part with a drop down to filter items. The drop-down consists of four items:

*is equal to
*starts with
*ends with

The default selection is "is equal to." Is there a way to set the default to "contains" instead of "is equal to"?

One potential work-around:

1. Modify the web  part.
2. Edit View
3. Under "Items to Retrieve" choose the 3rd option "Retrieve items  that meet these criteria:".
4. Check "Allow user to change criteria"
5. Select the default  column.
6. Select "Contains" (or which ever you'd like to be default)
7. Enter a value that will never return any items; i.e. something like "*****"

I would be interested in if there is a better way to do this.
