odata call with filter


I am using odata to display data in a UI5 table like below:

var oModel= new sap.ui.model.odata.ODataModel( ".../customer_at.xsodata/", false);

oTable.bindRows("/_customer_at?$filter=ACTIVE_FLAG eq 'Y'");

Data is being displayed as expected in the table.

But when I try to filter on any of the fields in the table, no data is being displayed.

In other words, the problem is - if I use a filter in the odata call, I can't filter on any field in the table.

Appreciate any thoughts on this.

Thank you

    Hi Shyam,

    I'm not seeing an issue with your syntax. I wonder if it's a data type issue. Is ACTIVE_FLAG an nvarchar?

    Hello Shyam,

    in the UI5 coding I would use sap.ui.model.Filter to define a filter. For your example like following:

    var oFilter = new sap.ui.model.Filter("ACTIVE_FLAG", sap.ui.model.FilterOperator.EQ, "Y"); oTable.getBinding("rows").filter([oFilter], sap.ui.model.FilterType.Application); ...

    Best Regards,

      Hi Pfeffer,

      Thanks for your response.

      I tried as you suggested but did not solve the issue for me.

      I ended up filtering data for active_flag in the view definition so users can apply filter as needed in the table.
