    You can use searchBuilder.preDefined to set an initial filtering state. Is that what you mean?

    Yes,
    And what should I fill in the searchBuilder.preDefined ?
    Leave it blank ?

    Leave it blank if you don't want an initial filter. If you do, there are examples in the documentation showing how it can be used.

    Sorry for miss clicking.
    My question is I want a 'dynamic' searchBuilder.preDefined.

    Not like this:
    1. Show the page with full data
    2. Launch the searchBuilder UI, then user defines his filter.
    3. Show HTML page with filtered data.

    What I want is:
    1. Launch the searchBuilder UI, then user defines his filter.
    2. Server send only the filtered data.
    3. Show HTML page with filtered data.
    4. After that, User can choose to

    • redefine the server-side filter
    • define a client-side filter on the loaded pre-filtered data.

    Thank you for the clarification. At the moment that isn't possible I'm afraid. There is no get / set API for SearchBuilder at the moment. It is something I plan to add in future.
