    Start custom filter automatically Link to this post

    Hey guys,

    in the backend of SS3 we have the nice filter function to search for special dataobjects in the listview.
    In the modeladmin I´ve used a code which load values in the filter inputfields:

    public function getSearchContext() {
       $currentUser = Member::currentUser()->FirstName;
       $currentUser = trim($currentUser);
       $context = parent::getSearchContext();
    $context->getFields()->fieldByName('q[Member__FirstName]')->setValue($currentUser); //set current user name in inputfield 'Member'

    return $context;

    This works pretty fine. What I now wanna do is to start the filter function automatically without clicking the apply-filter-button.
    If have tried to use a javascript to submit the button, but this has the result, that the page is reloading again, again and again.
    Does anybody have an idea to fix this problem? Is there a nice php-function or something else?
