XML Embedded Binding expression with filtered element

Hello experts,

I'm trying to apply an expression binding in my XML view for a property and I want to filter a set of elements and check a specific element value. The SAPUI5 documentation give us the example below:

{:= ${path:'target>extensions/[${name} === \'semantics\']/value'} === 'email'}

But I was unable to replicate.... The control never is displayed.

Here is my JSON (from JSONModel):

{ "results": [ { "App": "DEMO", "Read": true }, { "App": "DEMO2", "Read": false } ] }

In onInit method I do the setModel (UserAuthorization) in the view, and in my view.xml:

<m:Text id="testField" text="test" visible="{= ${path:'UserAuthorization>/results/[${App} === \'DEMO\']/Read'} === true}"/>

I'm able to send the JSONModel to a formatter function, however, I'd like to evaluate directly on XML Binding...

Obs: I've already defined data-sap-ui-xx-bindingSyntax="complex" in my index.html

Any idea how this can be done??

    I haven't done that before,

    but I think it is expecting the data like this, so it is not for your case.

    <Property Name="CURRENCY" Type="Edm.String" MaxLength="5" sap:display-format="UpperCase" sap:label="Currency" sap:sortable="false" sap:value-list="standard" sap:semantics="currency-code"/>
