    first of all thanks for this amazing framework!
    I just have one quick question, because I am using your ListView and I would like to search for more than one field. I was reading through your documentation and it seems like there are a few differences in between the Web API and the Mobile API.

    function viewInit(e) {
            dataSource: [
                { id: 1, text: "foo" },
                { id: 2, text: "bar" }
            template: "id: #: id# with text: #: text#",
            filterable: [
                { ignoreCase: true, field: "text" },
                { field: "id" }
    This theoretically does not work, does it? Or am I doing anything wrong?
    I would appreciate any further help!

    I know I could just use the operator and "contains" and put all the information in one string, but I was just wondering whether such thing was possible or not.

    Hi Max,

    I am happy to hear that you like our product.

    I am afraid that your configuration is not correct and the built-in filtering of the ListView does not support filtering by multiple fields. You can implement custom filtering using the filter() method of the dataSource and construct your own filters, but as I said there is no built-in support for this.
