jQuery Mobile - Listview Filter


The list can be filtered by adding the data-filter = "true" attribute. A search box is included above the list and behavior to filter out the list items is added. By default, the theme is inherited from the parents for search box.


Following example demonstrates the use of filter list in the jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <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>

      <h2>Listview Filter Example</h2>
      <ul data-role = "listview" data-inset = "true" data-filter = "true" 
         data-filter-placeholder = "Search">
         <li><a href = "#">Chennai</a></li>
         <li><a href = "#">Bangalore</a></li>
         <li><a href = "#">Pune</a></li>
         <li><a href = "#">Mumbai</a></li>
         <li><a href = "#">Delhi</a></li>
         <li><a href = "#">Dehradhun</a></li>
