"Turn On" or "Turn Off" or Enable/Disable Connect In-Database with List Box

Quasar

I have a brain block here and I'm looking for some inspiration.

 

I'm trying to speed up one of my existing applications by allowing the user to choose which databases they would like to include. Currently I filter downstream with list box / filter combination, but I'm wondering if anyone has ideas on how to enable/disable the Connect In-Database Tools at the start. My goal is to optimize the speed at which the query runs for users that are only interested in viewing data from one database.

I don't think the list box can quite do it but you can use check boxes to turn off the tool containers.

Good luck.

Tool Containers are typically the best option to enable/disable tools. If you can share more information on the List Box contents we could help with the action formula.

Yes!!!

 

I did not know containers could be enabled/disabled in an application! Exactly what I needed.

 

Thank you @CharlieS and @WillBowman!
