I started to use the TableFilter class to filter rows. The filtering through the user interface works fine. Besides that I wanted to provide also filtering through my own widgets like buttons etc.
This programmatic filtering
tableFilter.selectValue(lastNameCol, "Smith"); tableFilter.executeFilter();
does not have any effect. Please find attached a complete example that should illustrate the issue. According to my understanding by pressing the button in the example it should filter all persons with lastName "Smith" but it does not have any effect.
Is my approach wrong?
P.S: I believe the maintainer is Thomas Nield but I don't know how to contact him differently
