We are using the chosenbox component with ListModelList(Rendering All) and when we filter we see that the filter uses the startsWith() method

Is there a way to change this method from startsWith() method to contains() method?

Thank you!

Hey there,

Simplest option for this is to use


ListModels#toListSubModel(ListModel<t> model, java.util.Comparator<t> comparator, int nRows)

The comparator has 2 arguments: the input string, and the model data object. When the user searches by entering text, the comparator is invoked on each data object in model. The comparator returns an integer. If you return 0, it means a match, so the item is shown in results. If you return "not zero", it means "not match", so the item is not shown in results
