Datatable problem search

Topic: Datatable problem search

Expected behavior Filter the elements in the datatable

Actual behavior I have some null values ​​in my list of elements, this causes that when typing text in the search field, an error is generated in method searchLocalDataBy and searchDataObservable of tableService, because your method performs a tostring to a null value.(first image).

In my opinion, this error should not occur, should omit the null value in the search and move forward with the other values ​​to be filtered.

As a temporary solution, modify your method a little to accept null values in the filter(second image).

attached gif about the error. Please, help me with the error, thanks for your time !!

Dear Jack,

You have two possible workarounds for your situation:

1st) Prevent nulls from being displayed in your table (don't know how - maybe filter if data is null?)

2st) Write your own table filter function (this is not the best workaround) until we'll resolve this problem.

We have to fix it on our end, so we can't provide the fix for it in some spare time (the next release of MDB Angular will be in two next weeks).
