Filtering

Filtering allows to filter the collection of cards from dataSource which meets the predefined query in the quick filters collection. To enable filtering, define FilterSettings collection with display Text and ej.Query.

You can also define display tip to describe filter definition to user using property Description. If the Description property is not defined, given Text will act as display tip.

We can also customize filter option through external button or customToolbarItems by using filterCards() method.

The following code example describes the above behavior.

@(Html.EJ().Kanban("Kanban")
        .DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.datasource)
        .Columns(col =>
        {
            col.HeaderText("Backlog").Key("Open").Add();
            col.HeaderText("In Progress").Key("InProgress").Add();
            col.HeaderText("Done").Key("Close").Add();
        })
        .KeyField("Status")

        .Fields(field =>
        {
            field.Content("Summary")
                .Tag("Tags")
                .PrimaryKey("Id");
        })
        .FilterSettings(filter =>
        {
            filter.Text("Janet Issues").Query("new ej.Query().where('Assignee', 'equal', 'Janet')").Description("Displays issues which matches the assignee as 'Janet").Add();
            filter.Text("Closed  Issues").Query("new ej.Query().where('Status', 'equal', 'Close')").Description("Display the 'Closed' issues").Add();
        })     
    )
namespace MVCSampleBrowser
    {
        public partial class KanbanController : Controller
        {
            //
            // GET: /Kanban/
            public ActionResult KanbanFeatures()
            {
                var DataSource = new NorthwindDataContext().Tasks.Take(30).ToList();
                ViewBag.datasource = DataSource;
                return View();
            }
        }
    }

The following output is displayed as a result of the above code example.
