Description

The plugin adds a row of configurable form fields below the grid header where the filter values can be typed or selected. As user types the desired values, or on pressing enter, the grid store gets filtered to show only the matching records.

Design Goals

Many business applications store a huge number of records (thousands, millions) in the server databases what makes it difficult to present them to users. Standard paging grids or infinite scrolling grids do not solve the problem. Users usually want to find one or a few related records to work with.

While core Ext has a filtering plugin, it is somewhat awkward to use as the user needs many clicks to enter a filtering value. Also, the effective values are not directly visible in the filtered grid.

So the main goal was to provide easy-to-use, straightforward user interface with the minimum number of user actions needed to enter and see the filtering values.

For developers, the plugin must be easy to configure, however, advanced configurations must be possible.

  1. I was a bit skeptical when I purchased this plugin as I did not have any idea how I will make it work with Ext Direct and MVC.NET, but after a bit of communication with the Saki, i managed to integrate this fabulous search plugin in my data intensive freight forwarding and customs declaration system (500,000+ records). Well done Saki!! Keep up the good work.
