Pearson's Crystal Data Features: Select from available values

Features overview
Next: Perpetual restrainting

For the beginner or for rather simple tasks, Pearson's Crystal Data offers a quick search dialog with the most prominent search fields on one page, for enhanced searches, there is a multiple page dialog to enter the selection criteria.

For every database field you can of course manually enter a value, but it is more comfortable to select one or more values from a list of available values. Text or integer fields appear in a list, like the example below with the quick search dialog with a quest dialog to search for authors' names, here sorted for entry counts:

The next example shows the page of the advanced search dialog ("Selection criteria") to search for atomic enviroment (type)s (AET) with a list of available atomic environment types and their counts (here: number of atom sites - not entries - with that AET):

Note: If you search for atomic environments, you can give additional restrictions concerning elements for central atom as well as for the atoms in the enviroment and a distance range.

For numeric values, a histogram of all available values is given in the quest dialog to select a range from, e.g. to search for cell volume:
