drop down search not working in mendix for xpath datasource
I am wondering if the dropdown search can be implemented on a string attribte coming from an Xpath datasource to a grid. When I add this search field, I do get a drop-down with all possible value, but upon hitting ‘Search’ nothing changes and keeps the grid as is. Same dilemma is on the usability of Range search. If say a user wants to search and load all the records in the grid between the ActivityDate of 1/1/18 to 12/31/2019 then how can Mendix app allow user to make date range selection and then pull the correct records based on that selection.
Im fairly new to Mendix, but can't you simply use a microflow?
Type in the restrictions in a textbox
When submitting the restrictions (= search-button), call a microflow
Do a retrieve list in the microflow and filter the list using the parameter which contains the restrictions
and finaly show the list
I hope i understood it correctly. Like i said, i’m fairly new to Mendix.
