First of all, this requirement is not about the Search Functionality of SharePoint.
I have a requirement wherein the user should be able to search a list.
At first I used the text filter web part to search in a specific column in my list, however, they dont want this kind of approach. What they want is that there will be a textbox and a dropdown that contains a list of columns (lookup to a list). the selected column is where the application will search or filter the list.
What approaches is best here?
