More advanced Filter/Find (search on multiple attributes and use different operators)

25

When working with lists, you often have to use the List Operation Filter or Find. However, currently you can only Filter/Find on 1 attribute, and only check if it equals a certain value.

But often, you have to Filter/Find on multiple attributes. Currently, this requires multiple Filter/Find Actions. Also, sometimes you want to Find/Filter on a different operation than 'equals', for example not equal, greater/smaller than etc. This is not possible with List operations, and would require looping through the entire list.

Solution

Having more advanced Filter/Find options, such as using multiple attributes and different operators.

You could check out the app store widget ‘list view controls’. This gives you the possibility to add search filters (text, dropdown) to your listview.

It would be awesome if it would be possible to write (a restricted version of) an XPath query to Filter/Find on a List.
