Angularjs filter by multiple properties

Suggested Videos

Part 11 - Search filter in AngularJS



In this video we will discuss how to filter by multiple properties in AngularJS.



In the example below, we are using multiple search textboxes. As you type in the "Search name" textbox, only the name property is searched and matching elements are displayed. Similarly, as you type in the "Search city" textbox, only the city property is searched and the matching elements are displayed. When the "exact match" checkbox is checked, an exact match search is performed.

Angularjs filter example

Script.js :
var app = angular
        .module("myModule", [])
        .controller("myController", function ($scope) {

            var employees = [
                { name: "Ben", gender: "Male", salary: 55000, city: "London" },
                { name: "Sara", gender: "Female", salary: 68000, city: "Chennai" },
                { name: "Mark", gender: "Male", salary: 57000, city: "London" },
                { name: "Pam", gender: "Female", salary: 53000, city: "Chennai" },
                { name: "Todd", gender: "Male", salary: 60000, city: "London" },
            ];

            $scope.employees = employees;
        });

HtmlPage1.html :

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
    <title></title>
    <script src="Scripts/angular.min.js"></script>
    <script src="Scripts/Script.js"></script>
    <link href="Styles.css" rel="stylesheet" />
</head>
<body ng-app="myModule">
    <div ng-controller="myController">
        <input type="text" placeholder="Search name" ng-model="searchText.name" />
        <input type="text" placeholder="Search city" ng-model="searchText.city" />
        <input type="checkbox" ng-model="exactMatch" /> Exact Match
        <br /><br />
        <table>
            <thead>
                <tr>
                    <th>Name</th>
                    <th>Gender</th>
                    <th>Salary</th>
                    <th>City</th>
                </tr>
            </thead>
            <tbody>
                <tr ng-repeat="employee in employees | filter: searchText : exactMatch">
                    <td> {{ employee.name }} </td>
                    <td> {{ employee.gender }} </td>
                    <td> {{ employee.salary  }} </td>
                    <td> {{ employee.city  }} </td>
                </tr>
            </tbody>
        </table>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Styles.css

body {
    font-family: Arial;
}

table {
    border-collapse: collapse;
}

td {
    border: 1px solid black;
    padding: 5px;
}

th {
    border: 1px solid black;
    padding: 5px;
    text-align: left;
}

The following example has a single search textbox, and is used to search multiple properties - name and city.

        .controller("myController", function ($scope) {

            var employees = [
                { name: "Ben", gender: "Male", salary: 55000, city: "London" },
                { name: "Sara", gender: "Female", salary: 68000, city: "Chennai" },
                { name: "Mark", gender: "Male", salary: 57000, city: "London" },
                { name: "Pam", gender: "Female", salary: 53000, city: "Chennai" },
                { name: "Todd", gender: "Male", salary: 60000, city: "London" },
            ];

            $scope.employees = employees;

            $scope.search = function (item) {
                if ($scope.searchText == undefined) {
                    return true;
                }
                else {
                    if (item.city.toLowerCase()
                                 .indexOf($scope.searchText.toLowerCase()) != -1 ||
                        item.name.toLowerCase()
                                 .indexOf($scope.searchText.toLowerCase()) != -1) {
                        return true;
                    }
                }

                return false;
            };
        });
