Tutorial: Use URLs to Pass Data and Filter Grids

Documentation
This tutorial covers how to:
  • Pass parameters between pages via a URL
  • Filter a grid using a received URL parameter
To accomplish this, you will:
  1. Collect user input from an initial page
  2. Build a parameterized URL to pass the user's input to a second page.
  3. Use information packaged in the URL to filter a data grid.
We will use a list of reagents as our sample data, our finished application will filter the list of reagents to those that start with the user provided value. For example, if the user enters 'tri', the grid will display only those reagents whose name starts with 'tri'.
