Using Tables

A table is an arrangement of data using a series of rows and columns. The information in the first column relates specifically to the information found in the other columns. In Wwise, tables display information on things such as Events and Presets.

You can navigate through the items in the table by using the up and down arrow keys. In most cases, you can resize columns, sort information by each of the different column headings, and edit the property values directly within the table.

To resize columns in a table:

  1. Position the mouse pointer over a column divider.

    The pointer changes to a double arrow.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Drag the divider to the right to increase the size of the column.

    • Drag the divider to the left to decrease the size of the column.

To configure columns in a table:

  1. Position the mouse over the column header band.

  2. Right-click the header band.

    The shortcut menu appears displaying its sole option: Configure Columns....

  3. Select Configure Columns....

    The Configure Columns... dialog appears, where you can specify which columns to display and their order.

To sort information in a table:

  1. Click a column title in the table.

    The information in the table is sorted in ascending order according to the information in that column.

  2. Click the column title again to sort the information in descending order.

    [Note] Note

    Where the order of items within a table plays an important role, you will not be able to sort by column title. Instead, you will be able to reorder the items manually by dragging them from one position to another.

To filter elements in a table:

  1. Click the Search icon in the upper-right corner. Default Shortcut: Ctrl+F3.

    A standard alphanumeric search field appears.

  2. Enter any series of characters in the field, including numbers, letters, underscores, or spaces.

    Wwise filters from view all elements without a matching pattern of characters in any of their columns. With fewer elements listed, it's easier to find the one you need.

    [Note] Note

    Exceptionally, in the File Manager Wwise searches only the filenames of the File column.

    Additionally, Wwise excludes objects hidden in a collapsed node in the List View, Query Editor, MIDI Keymap Editor, and Reference View from the search, thereby filtering them out by default unless a visible ancestor is kept.

  3. To close the search field and reset the filter, click the Close icon to the left of the Search icon or press Esc.

[Note] Add links to table texts

Text in table fields can be linked to other locations by adding an appropriate protocol handler at the beginning. The handler will apply to all the text in the field, so your entry must be accurate and complete. Adding, for example, http:\\ to the Notes field will display an underlined, clickable text when viewing it from a table view like the Batch Rename View. In this case, the protocol handler and URL will clearly open a browser to Audiokinetic's website. However, you are welcome to use any protocol handler defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PROTOCOLS\Handler, including ones you define.
