Filtering

Easily enable filtering on your grid by setting the filter attribute on your <zing-grid> tag.

Default Filter Settings

Once you add the filter attribute, filter fields will appear under each head cell to make each column filterable.

External Input

You can use an external input and our API method filterColumn('...') (see below) to dynamically search the grid from an external input.

const zgRef = document.querySelector('zing-grid');
zgRef.filterColumn('columnIndex', 'columnFilterValue');

Filter Type

Defining <zg-column> types will adjust the filter to the corresponding input type. For example, setting type="select" will create a dropdown list with filtering options:

<zg-colgroup>
  <!-- default type is text -->
  <zg-column index="title"></zg-column>
  <!-- define a select dropdown as a filter -->
  <zg-column
    index="genre"
    type="select"
    type-select-options="Crime, Drama, Romance, Sci-Fi, Western, Mystery, Thriller">
  </zg-column>
</zg-colgroup>

You can remove a column filter by defining the filter="disabled" attribute on specific columns, like so:

<zg-column filter="disabled"></zg-column>
