Store user settings for object tables

Description

A user can configure the view of object tables and define the following settings:

  • number of rows to show (default: 10)

  • object fields to show (default: summary fields)

These settings are currently not persisted. Even if a user navigates in the UI, the latest settings were not restored, if the user comes back to a site.

To improve the usability of object tables, we should persist these settings in the following ways:

  • automatically store the current settings per user and restore these settings when the user comes back to the page

  • add a reset functionality to restore the default settings

  • allow the persisting of multiple settings and let the user switch between these settings

Also changes in object type definitions needs to be handled.

Did some testing: The automatic saving of the last settings did not work in my testing environment

The menu looks different than other navigation elements in DATAGERRY.

current version looks like:

The following improvements wood be nice:

  • adding new filters:

    • put the input field at the top of the menu and the save button as a small black/grey icon beside the input box

  • existing filters

    • use the trash icon for the removing filter action an put it at the end of the filter

  • font size

    • use the same font size /style/colors like in the top navigation bar

  • clear button

    • for me the clear button is very dangerous, as all filters can be deleted with on click. I simply would remove that button

  • reset button

    • “Reset” simply means “show the default summary buttons”? I would show that as a simple filter element with name “Default“ that cannot be deleted.
