Searching a Grid Embedded in a UX Component

While it is easy to add a Search Part to a Grid, there may be situations where you want to create a much more sophisticated Search Part for the Grid than the built-in Search Part allows.

For example, you might want your 'search part' to be organized into collapsible 'accordion' panes and you might want users to be able to use sliders and calendar controls to enter their search criteria.

Using the layout power that the UX component offers, it is very easy to create extremely sophisticated layouts to prompt for search criteria. These videos shows how you can use Action Javascript to search a Grid that has been embedded in the UX component. The net result being the ability to create an extremely powerful and flexible 'power search' part for your Grids.
