Search Panel

The TreeList component has a built-in feature that enables the users to search through the data. The Search Panel uses filtering under the hood to show only the relevant records in the TreeList.

Getting Started

To enable the functionality include the search option to the toolbar configuration.

In addition it is possible to customize which fields to search when a value is entered in the search input.

    toolbar: ["search"],
    search: {
        fields: ["ContactTitle"] /* specify the fields that will be included in the filter */

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.
