select is an attribute which marks this field as being one of the search criteria for this resource's search view.

  • A value of select="1" means that the field is included in the basic search, and a value of select="2" means that it is in the advanced search.
  • You can get more idea about Field's Attributes.

Hope this will help you.

Thank you.

This used to work also in the field definition from the model. But I have seen some old code that has stopped working in v10 with this.

Was this deprecated ?
