Search filter for galleries

Hi, I’m trying to create a filter for a resources gallery using User Input elements (have tried switch, dropdown, checkbox). Every time I try connecting the user input element to the dataset, it greys out in the Preview.

Does anyone know how to do this?

I’ve been trying to follow instructions for table filters, but I can’t test anything once it’s connected to data. Has anyone else had this problem and have you found a solution?


Hi Jade!

Input fields that are connected to a dataset are used for well… - user input, mainly for submitting and updating forms.
The reason that they’re greyed out is as I assume, your dataset is set to ‘Read-Write’ but there’s no previous data (submitted) to show.

In order to assist though, I need some more information about what you’re trying to achieve.
What kind of filtering you want?
Based on what logic?
How you intend to present the results?
Any additional information that could be helpful :slight_smile:

If everything that I wrote is completely wrong and I’m just aimlessly speculating, please share a link to your site so one of us, the WixCode team, can inspect it and provide you with a solution.
