jQuery Mobile - Filterable Basics


You can set data-filter attribute to true on a listview to create a filter for its items of the list.

To enter the search string, you have to provide a text field in your markup and filterable makes the use of it by giving a selector to access the text field's value of datainput attribute.


Following example demonstrates the use of basic filterable in jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Filterable basics</title>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

      <form class = "ui-filterable">
         <input id = "filterBasic-input" data-type = "search">
      <ul data-role = "listview" data-filter = "true" data-input = "#filterBasic-input">
         <li>Maruti Suzuki</li>


Let's carry out the following steps to see how the above code works −

  • Save the above html code as filterable_basic.html file in your server root folder.

  • Open this HTML file as http://localhost/filterable_basic.html and the following output will be displayed.
