Searching on PageBlockTable....



Again i am here with some interesting queries.

My requirement is that i am having thousands of records of particular object and displaying in vF page using pageBlockTable. Now i want to implement searching on those records but similar to search in excel sheet.

(As you must seen in excel sheet there is a drop-down on the header of each field and we can filter the data based on selection in those drop-downs).


So i want to implement exact same thing in VF pageBlockTable.

Does anyone have any sugestion or any similar solution...?


If running user is not able to see these records in Lookup search, then this running user has not yet visited these records yet.


Try to visit these records, then on lookup search these records will be visible.




You can call an action function on the onchange event of the text box and also rerender your page block table.


Did this answer your question? If not, let me know what didn't work, or if so, please mark it solved.
