This article is specific to the Wijmo wijgrid. You can learn more about Wijmo here. One of the most common and important features of a grid is the ability to filter. You see a grid full of data and you filter it out to see data based on the filter condition. This article focuses on how to load filtered data into wijgrid directly from the server i.e data is fetched from the server based on a filter condition and loaded in wijgrid. The filter condition can be provided using a textbox or any other input element of your choice. This article describes how you can load filtered data from the server. You may modify the code to fire the loadFilteredData() method as per your requirement (for eg. on keydown event of the textbox).
