Using IFilterCriteria with SubEntities

Can anyone give me some direction on searching for records using iFilterCriteria and within SubEntities. I have search these forums and found a couple of examples but none that work.


Thank You

Re: Using IFilterCriteria with SubEntities

Hi Bob,


Not sure if you figured it out already, but here's how I would use filtering with custom entities:


Public Function GetOrders(ByVal productId As String) As CustomEntityList(Of ApplicationRec) Dim productIdCriteria As New InFilterCriteria(fdProductId, New String() {productId}) Dim dateSort As New SortCriteria(fdDate, System.ComponentModel.ListSortDirection.Descending) Dim list As CustomEntityList(Of Orders) = _ Manager.GetCustomEntities(New SortCriteria() {dateSort}, _ New InFilterCriteria() {productIdCriteria}) Return list End Function


I tried implementing the IFilterCriteria interface but didn't quite work, the GetClause method would never get called. So basically the filter classes that implement IFilterCriteria that you have available are InFilterCriteria, NotInFilterCriteria, DateFilterCriteria, ComparisonFilterCriteria and StaticTextFilterCriteria.
