Filtering is one of the key features of ListView control. The Filtering option is added into the ListView control when the data-ej-enableFiltering attribute is set to “True”. This enables a simple interface to filter items from a large collection of ListView items.

Refer the following code examples.

  • HTML
  • <div id="defaultlistview">
                <li data-ej-text="Artwork"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Abstract"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="2 Acrylic Mediums"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Creative Acrylic"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Modern Painting"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Canvas Art"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Black white"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Children"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Preschool Crafts"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="School-age Crafts"></li>

    Add the following script in your code.

  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />  
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    module ListComponent {
        $(function () {
            var sample = new ej.ListView($("#defaultlistview"), {
                     width: 300, 
                     enableFiltering: true
