Building a Multiple Selection Live Filter

Live Filter can be applied for multiple values of the filter field, i.e. list employees from New York and Chicago cities. This can be achieved using the Checkboxset or Select widget to represent the Filter fields from the Advanced Settings property of Live Filter.

For example, we will see how to filter the vacation details of employees based on the status and type of leaves. We are using the hrdb Vacation table for this example.

  1. Drag and drop a Live Filter onto the canvas.

  2. Bind the Live Filter to Database CRUD Variable with hrdb as Service and Vacation as Entity.

  3. Pick a two-column layout and select Status and Type fields.

  4. From the Advanced Settings property.

    1. Set the Widget Display Property for Status field to Checkboxset.

    1. Set the Widget Display Property for Type field to Select.
  5. From the canvas, select the Type field and check the Multiple field property

  1. For seeing the results, we will use a Data Table
    1. Drag and drop a Data Table
    2. Bind the Dataset Value property of Data Table to the result node of the Live Filter created above.
  2. Run the app and select multiple values from Select and-or Checkboxset and see the result in the Data Table.
