Column filter by column type

Please can we have a node which will filter on columns by the column type as chosen by the user, I.e. to filter for double columns or string columns etc.
This can be useful for getting a list of the right columns for use in a loop.

I'm refreshing the topic. This would be very useful feature!

This request is already logged and has now been tagged as interesting to both of you.  We'll update here when we have more information on a target milestone.

It would also be useful to be able to filter column by name/wildcard match/regex match!


I second that from Steve too.

There needs to be some better handling on columns, it is very limited in comparison to row handling.




completely agree on the Column Handling -- I have a use case where it would be very useful to be able to filter out columns based on a Wild-Card specification of Column Name.




You can now do this in KNIME 2.9!!
