How to implement search functionality in data grid while data source is in association..??

I am using the association as a data source in the data grid to retrieve the data. I want search functionality for multiple columns. But The search bar toggle is disabled to implement it.    I have tried with grid search functionality. But I don't know to search and reflect the data based on the search field.   Thanks in advance, Madhusudanarao Avvaru

Unfortunately, searching is not supported when using an association as the data source. What you can do, however, is set it to database or xpath and retrieve the same data over association. The search bar will then be available again.

If you can't use the database or xpath sources for some reason, you could instead opt to use a list view and the list view controls widget, for instance.
