meaning of searchoptions.defaultValue

Hello Tony,

I tried to use defaultValue for columns having select element and I think that the current implementation (the meaning) of it is not the best. So I decide to post my doubts here.

The documentation (common searching options) says

If not empty set a default value in the search input element.

It says nothing about the meaning of it in case of usage stype: "select". On the other side the current implementation of defaultValue is the following:

  1. Searching Dialog ignores searchoptions.defaultValue. So it can't be used to preselect some select option as default per column which will be used in searching dialog.
  2. Searching toolbar fills the default values at the initialization time or on call of clearToolbar, but not apply the filter. In the case the user sees data which don't corresponds the filter displayed. In case of usage searchOnEnter: false option the filter can be applyed if the user types not quick enough. After applying of filter it's not easy to remove all filters especially if one have grid with many columns. If the user clears unneeded fields it will be refilled one more time after clicking "Reload Grid" button.

I used to have grids which many columns of select type. The current behavior of usage searchoptions.defaultValue seems me not the best one. The usage of the option in Serching Dialog is what it seems me interesting. The usage of it in the searching toolbar disturb me opposite.

What do you think about changing the behavior of usage searchoptions.defaultValue. For example the options useDefaultValue of filterToolbar (managed by $ too) and the same option of searching dialog could be a possible solution. One can use special string value "dialog", "toollbar" of useDefaultValue additionally to true and false to allows selective behavior inside of common $

What is your oppinion Tony about the subject?

Best regards

Sofia, Bulgaria
