Enabling Offline Database Data Source in Mendix - Query Regarding Lack of Offline Search Functionality

Hi all, The above picture is from Mendix Docs I'm trying to understand why a data source from a database can be accessed offline, yet the search functionality, which relies on database queries, is not available for offline grids and list views. Could someone please help me grasp the underlying scenario? Thanks in advance!

Hi Naga,


The first time an offline-enabled mobile application is run, it will retrieve all the data it requires to run offline from the server. After that, it will remain in offline mode until a synchronization event is triggered. Without a server to process all the necessary logic, microflows run from the Mendix client cannot function in offline pages. The database used to store data on your mobile device for offline use does not support complex queries so Xpath and search queries are not allowed.
