This uses a filter template to reformat the search form vertically. The phpLens search form is very flexible. Try the following:

- Search for all product id's greater than 30: >30
- All product id's between 10 to 30: 10 (to) 30
- All product names beginning with V: V

This example demonstrates using a template to change the search screen:
 $lens->templateFilter = 'ex311.tpl';

The contents of the template:

<table width="100%" border="1">
<tr bgcolor="#333333">
  <td colspan=5 align=right><font color="#FFFFFF">
{$_SUBMIT_}</font> {$_DYNEDIT_} &nbsp; </td>
<tr bgcolor="#666666">
  <td><b><font color="#FFFFFF">{$PRODUCTID_T}</font></b></td>
  <td><b><font color="#FFFFFF">{$PRODUCTNAME_T} </font></b></td>
  <td><b><font color="#FFFFFF">{$SUPPLIERID_T}</font></b></td>
  <td><b><font color="#FFFFFF">{$CATEGORYID_T}</font></b></td>
  <td><b><font color="#FFFFFF">{$QUANTITYPERUNIT_T}</font></b></td>

The template consists of the fields ,eg {$PRODUCTID}, and the captions {$PRODUCTID_T}. And we also have the buttons {$_SUBMIT_} and {$_CANCEL_}, though the cancel button has been removed. The {$_DYNEDIT_} tag holds the green "e" editor button. Finally we have the form management tags {$_FORMBEGIN_} and {$_FORMEND_}.

Other features include exporting to Excel [which requires the ob_start() call at the beginning of the page)] and setting the firstState to FILTERVIEW, so the search screen appears on startup.

$lens->firstState = 'FILTERVIEW';
