I'm using the AF FindEventFrames method to find event frames matching a particular name string.
eflist = AFEventFrame.FindEventFrames(afdb, Nothing, "*", 0, 500, _
"*" & ar.EventAreaSubstring & "*", "", _
Nothing, aftemp, True)
Is the name filter a simple "search for substring" or is there any additional syntax that can be used, like a regex, to do more complex searches? Specifically what I want to do is search for either substring X or substring Y.
If you look at the 'Wildcard Characters' section of this reference in AF SDK documentation it will explain what can be used for wildcard characters in a name filter.
Search Query Syntax Overview
You can use the [ ] syntax to do an OR of characters within the name filter.
