I am using SharePoint 2013 Foundation. I have created a page and kept a list view of custom list.

My requirement is to display the default list view search box.

enter image description here

But when I keep the list view on the page it does not show any search box to search the items in the current list.

I have already checked the option Display search box from the web part edit menu.

How can I display search box?

NOte: I have already gone through this post. There question is related to library and there "Display search box" is missing. Mine case is different.

  • The seach box is dependent on the style you are using for the view. Are you using the default style? – Christoffer Nov 28 '17 at 9:55

If you are using SharePoint foundation you won't see"Find an item" search box as this feature is limited to Enterprise version.
