Advanced header filter search
« on: March 21, 2019, 02:48:26 pm »

Is it possible to customize header column filters to have a possibility dynamically remote load options based on entered symbols by user?

Some my 'select' filters may have about 60k-70k different options so it shouldn't be loaded on page as is. So the idea is to load only options based on entered symbols by user. For example users enters 'Xx' in filter search input(example in attached pic) then script makes ajax call on server side which responses with needed list of options.

Also the same question is about editing with autocomplete. Though I think I can do it using autocomplete functions, right?

Cheers  ;)

That's a good use case, however it's not supported.

I'm moving it to feature request to be looked into for upcoming versions.

Yes, autocomplete can be used in editors.
