When the search criteria have been set up, you need only press the Search button at the bottom of the Search tab or select Tools->Search from the menu. When a search has been completed, the application automatically displays the Results tab. The results from the search described above are shown in the following screen shot
The results of the search (Hi-colour, MIDP-2.0, Nokia phones)
The first line in the results display tells you how many devices matched your search criteria.
Following this is a description of the search criteria that you specified. If any of your search criteria are not displayed here, check the Search tab and ensure that the comparator is not set to n/a.
Each of the matching devices is presented as a list and you can click on a device to get it's details. The details of the selected device are used to populated the capabilities in the Device tab. To show that the Device tab has been updated, an asterisk (*) is displayed. Similarly, the User Agent of the selected device has been put into the search field of the User Agents tab and the device has been identified and selected in the Relationships tab hierarchy. In this case, the device selected in the relationships hierarchy will be the first device matched for make and model names. This may not necessarily be the device that originally set these capability values. To select a device in the relationship hierarchy by make and model, use the Device tab.
