unlike a datagrid, where you can perform a bunch of different search parameters, a DataList appears to have one single search bar, but you can add multiple attribute searches...in a list. If you want to do multi parameter search, is this possible with datalist built in? Or is it only one search at a time? For example, split each search value by “,” or something? I was wondering if this was possible, as datalists or are so much more clean than datagrids.
The search field in a ListView will search all selected fields for the parameter entered.
So if you have attribute A and B selected for the search field and the user enters xyz in the search bar all records are retrieved where A OR B contains xyz.
If you want to perform a search more specifically, e.g. search where A contains xyz and B contains ZZZ then maybe the Grid-Search widgets might help you out, see:
