One of the first blog entries I did about the then new Visual Builder in May 2018 was about filtering data in a collection / table, which was followed by another entry about using compound conditions for filtering. Since then Visual Builder evolved with new releases, and filtering today is even simpler thanks to a new visual query builder. So here is a quick update for those looking at how to search and filter tables or lists whether they are based on ServiceDataProviders or ArrayDataProviders.
The underlying technology/code for filtering is still the same – you define a filterCriterion made of several criteria -each specifying attribute, operand, and value combinations; but now you can do it with a little visual builder that looks like this:
As you can see it also makes it quite easy to define complex, compound conditions. Also note that you can switch to see the code version of the filter you built.
In the video below I show how to use this new builder to define search pages in your app. Read the complete article here.
