XPages Basic Search shows you how you could search and filter your data sources in a Xpage.


This example contains two reusable custom controls.

One shows in a repeat control/ view, the data is dynamically refreshed while typing search text by using a partial refresh.

Note that this option will generate more traffic on the server.

The other one shows by using a redirect to another or same Xpage how you could filter the data after typing search text and pushing a search button.

The search string is added to the url itself so a full refresh must be done here. This option needs a search button but will spare traffic on your server.

I have tested it on IE8 and Firefox and the control works fine. It works also on IE8 with compatibility mode turned on.
