Qlik sense api search in a field's values with wildcards like '*' or '?' ?

Hi,

is there a way with the api to do a search with wildcards like '*' or '?' in a field's values with Qlik Sense version June 2017?

Because i'm using searchResults method and it works but only for specific values. for example for a field city that has values :

- London

- Bruxelles

- Berlin

if i search the string 'b' the result give me ["Bruxelles","Berlin"] but if i want to search *erlin it doesn't return [Berlin], the same for the character '?'. What am i missing? is there another method that i have to use in the API's?


Thanks

Hi,

You could use this call SearchListObjectFor method ‒ Qlik Sense

Another option would be to use the visualization API and dynamically create a listbox Visualization API ‒ Qlik Sense

thanks but i want only to retrieve the values and not to select them. My goal is to create a listbox with search for my mashup that show only the values that respects the string written in the search but with the wildcards '*' and '?'
