I am building a mobile app and need the ability to search for certain values to limit the amount data being returned to the device. I know I can use a list item and data filter to limit records on the client side, but I really need to be able to submit a value, like a name, and have it return only records matching that name.
Is this possible today?
Thank you in advance for your time.
Hello,Did you check this document explaining how to do a search in a Rollbase Mobile App? https://community.progress.com/.../971.aspx.
I have used the data filter before which in this case, I believe, is just filtering the records in your list that are returned by your view. When I ran through an example like that, I wasn't able to filter items that didn't show up on my first page, so the end user could not find the record they are looking for. If I leave the rows per page value blank, it doesn't appear to bring back all my records anyway, which is good. In this case, I am talking about 50,000 records that I need to be able to search through and return values by name.
In my example below, I set the rows per page to 3. I have an account that returns on this list called AA Maintenance. If I try and use the data filter from the list, I cannot get the value to return, because it wasn't one of the first 3.
I see. I think you are right about the data filter search being a client side process only. Let me get back to you while I check if the server side search functionality already exist in the current Rollbase Mobile version.
This app is running on 3.0.2, so if there is something in a newer version, please let me know.
Any luck on this Gian? It is a huge issue for us and could be a show stopper with our current client as well as future clients if we can't perform a server side search. We just can't take the performance hit of returning all these values when the dataset is so large.
Any thoughts on this one? I really need to know if there is a way for me to hit an API in Rollbase from a mobile device that will allow me to search on the server rather than return all records. This is a potential show stopper for my client. Any response is appreciated.

Can you give me some direction on where to get started to try this? I'm not a developer, so this is a little new to me.
How do you append the session ID to the service?
I've got the selectQuery service created and can run a test which is returning accurate results. I pulled a RSessionID from Fiddler to test, but I don't know how to get that same value to pass to my query.
