Search Panel

Out of the box, the TreeList enables the users to search through its data by using the search panel.

Under the hood, the search panel uses filtering to show only the relevant records in the TreeList.

Getting Started

To enable the search panel functionality, include the Search option to the toolbar configuration.

        .ToolBar(t => t.Search()) // Enable the Search panel.

You can also customize which fields to search through the data when a value is entered in the search input.

    .Search(s=> { s.Field(c => c.ContactName); })

Known Limitations

  • When filtering is enabled in the filter textboxes for all TreeList columns will be populated with the value entered in the search textbox.
  • When the server operations are enabled, you can search only by using string fields. Using the Contains filter operation is available only for string types.
