You can filter the ListView data through using the filter method of the DataSource:
If the filtering should happen on the server, then the serverFiltering
configuration option should be set to true.
In this case the dataSource will send filter parameters to the server and will expect to receive the filtered data as a response to the Ajax request. In case you need to modify or change the format of the filter parameters you can use the parameterMap function
