Table Filter

Table filter is a gh-element that allows you to filter items by the value of a specific field. The filtered items are displayed in the linked elements.

In general, a filter is a button that opens a side menu. There, the user can select the field by which the filtering will be performed and the type of filter. The number of added filters will be indicated on the filter button.

Adding field for filtering

Note that you can apply multiple filters to items at once. But only one type of filter is applied to one field.

After applying the filters, only the items that match the filters will remain in the linked element.
