Thanks for the reply. I make a mistake explaining my question.
I want the filter to be aware of 'words', so that 'and' matches 'one and two'. Using startsWith, 'one and two' would not match 'and' would it? In my tests it does not.

There is no such built in filter. Nevertheless in the current scenario you could set any type of filter, for example "contains" (because the filtering is disabled by default) and enable the serverFiltering option of the dataSource. In this case the developer is responsible to manually perform the filtering on the back end and return the matched items to the widget.
