Players

An indexed table is listing all players in the database. By default they are sorted by last name, first name and nationality. The ordering can be changed by touching the "preferences-symbol" in the navigation bar.

A table's row does not only contain the name of the player but also shows the player's most important data, like the nationality, title or the most recent ratings. As shown in the example, BBase-Chess distinguishes between the player's nationality and federation. Though the federation and the nationality are for most players identical this does not have to be the case.

Players are automatically added when games are imported. BBase-Chess ensures that the same player (identified by the first names, last name and nationality) is only added once. To add a new player manually, the "add-symbol" should be touched. To modifiy or delete the player's data touch the "information-symbol" and afterwards the "detail"-button in the navigation bar, respectively the "trash"-symbol in the lower toolbar.

Attention: If a player is deleted, the player is deleted from all relevant games at once!

BBase-Chess stores historical data for the titles and ratings. In the tabular overview of the players only the most recent data is shown.

By using the search bar players can be filtered. Only characters and the "*" (asterik) sign can be used for the search. If a word component has been entered, only those players are displayed that contain the component either in their first names or their last name. If a "*" is appended at the end of the entered characters, all players are listed whose first names or last name begin with the characters before the "*", (e.g. Mart* will find players with the name Marten or Martin).

To see more details and also statistics about the player, touch the "information-symbol" of the respective player.
