SAPUI5 - Date/DateTime Filters on client side JSON Model

Hi Experts,

I have a JSON model that is bound to a sap.m.Table. I am trying to filter data based on a column "Date" (bound to property[CreatedOn] of the model) which the service returns in the JSON Object Format ("/Date(timeStamp)"). The table is as below:

sample Date from server:

I am trying to filter the table on the client side but I am not sure on how to implement date filters on the client side. The date displayed are formatted based on

sap.ui.model.type.Date({pattern: 'dd/MM/YYYY'})

The filtering code looks as below:

var fromD = this.getView().byId("idKMFilterPaneDocDateF").getValue() ? new Date(this.getView().byId("idKMFilterPaneDocDateF").getValue()) :

var dtFilter = new sap.ui.model.Filter({
  path: "CreatedOn",
  operator: "EQ",
  value1: "dateTime'" + fromD.toJSON() + "'"

var binding = oTable.getBinding("items");
binding.filter([filter], "Application");

When I execute the above code, I always get "NO Data". I need to implement the "BT" filters as well based on user selection criteria but can't get it to work with "EQ" itself.

Any ideas are appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Deepak,

    You can try creating a custom sorter for dates. It should work as per your requirement. Thanks!

      Thanks Abhi,

      Could you point me to an example I can refer to. Also, Shoudn'tI be writing a custom Filter rather than a sorter(since I need to filter out values between 2 dates).

      Best Regards,

    Hi Deepak,

    Please have look to below details. although this is not implemented for Table and Date field ... but you may give it a try...

    	<Title text="Available Products"/><ToolbarSpacer/><SearchField width="50%" search="onFilterProducts"/>

    Where "onFilterProducts" is method which will get called when you click on search button in search field.

    ], function(Controller, Filter, FilterOperator) {
    "use strict";
    return Controller.extend("SAPOpenCourse.com.controller.View1", {
    onFilterProducts : function(oEvent){
    var aFilter = [],
     sQuery = oEvent.getParameter("query"),
     oList = this.getView().byId("lstProducts"),
      oBinding = oList.getBinding("items");
       aFilter.push(new Filter("ProductID", FilterOperator.Contains, sQuery));

    You can use FilterOperator.BT in place of FilterOperator.Contains.

    Hope this will help.
