Filter Advanced

Filter Advanced is a gh-element that allows user filter items by the filters determined by its settings. This element also stands out because it allows you to display filters directly in the application, instead of opening an additional window, as in the Table Filter.

Using the filter advanced

This element consists of a button that opens a drop-down list of fields available for filtering and the filters themselves. After selecting a field, its filter is displayed in the element and can be used.

Like other filters, this filter should be attached to gh-elements such as Table and Cards. This will allow you to display the result of the filtering, namely the matched items.

Functional Characteristics

This filter is mainly used to make the most of the filters. That is, you can put the most used filters on the main view next to the table, for example. Then, to filter out the items, the user will not have to constantly search for the necessary fields and select the filter type in the drop-down lists.

It also allows the user to set up personal filters that will constantly filter items. That is, when the user sets up filters in a given element, they are saved even after reloading the page and exiting the application. Thus, the user does not need to set up filters every time to find the necessary data. For example, the user can set everything up so that only his or her tasks are displayed.

Element Options

These options allows to configure the element and displayed filters.

Field Settings

The first group configures specifically the element field.

Settings of

Name Description
App allows you to select an application to filter; details...
Bind to table allows to select the element that will be filtered out; details...
Disable filter auto save allows you to disable the filter saving; details...


Since the current element filters items, you must select the application in which the items will be filtered. So the current setting is for application selection. This allows you to select one of the applications from your list of apps.

Bind To Table

The items are usually displayed in the other gh-element like Table or Cards. Because of this, to filter elements in the application, you need to bind the filter to one of these elements, then in the current setting you can select it.

The element for the current setting is taken from the same application as the items. In other words, it is taken from the App.

Disable Filter Auto Save

By default, the current element retains the filter values even after reloading the page or exiting the application. This allows users to avoid re-entering values for filtering. But the current settings allow you to block this function, so that the filter value is cleared every time.

In other words, if this option is enabled, filter values will not be saved after the page reloads.

User Filter

These settings allows to set filters of which fields will be displayed in the application and configure the type of the filter.

Filters added by users

Name Description
Column shows the name of the field; details...
Show allows to show filter of the field to be displayed in current element; details...
