If this parameter is true (default value) or if it is empty, then the returned string contains references to field captions in the table with which the record is associated. If this parameter is false, then the returned string contains references to field numbers.

The following example initializes a filter page object that includes a filter control for the Date system table. The filter control has the caption of Date record. The example adds two filter fields to the filter control on the filter page as the result of applying a default view. The GetView method is used to capture that filter view from the FilterPageBuilder object, and then apply it to the record.

    varDateItem: Text[300];  
    varDateRecord: Record Date;  
    varFilterPageBuilder: FilterPageBuilder;  
    varDefaultView: Text[300];

    varDateItem := 'Date record';  
    varDateRecord.SetFilter("Period End", '12122015D');  
    varDateRecord.SetFilter("Period Start", '01012015D');  
    varDefaultView := varDateRecord.GetView;  
    varFilterPageBuilder.AddTable(varDateItem, DATABASE::Date);  
    varFilterPageBuilder.SetView(varDateItem, varDefaultView);  
    if varFilterPageBuilder.RunModal = true then
