setFilter

setFilter(hierarchyName:String, filter:Filter Object)

[starting from version: 1.4]

Sets the filter for the specified hierarchy.

Parameters

  • hierarchyName – the name of the hierarchy
  • filterFilter Object that contains filtering information.

Examples

1) If you want to see data on ‘Cars’ and ‘Bikes’:

flexmonster.setFilter("Category", 
  {
    "members": [
      "category.[bikes]",
      "category.[cars]"
    ]
  }
);

Try the example on JSFiddle.

2) If you want to see all the categories except ‘Accessories’ now you can do this using the following code, where exclude property is used:

flexmonster.setFilter("Category", 
  {
    "exclude": [
      "category.[accessories]"
    ]
  }
);

instead of

flexmonster.setFilter("Category", 
  {
    "members": [
      "category.[bikes]",
      "category.[cars]",
      "category.[clothing]",
      "category.[components]"
    ]
  }
);

Check out on JSFiddle.
