I have document library (Images Type) and when using the following quick filter paramters nothing happens


I tried this


but this only works when the FiterValue1 equals exactly one or more item's LinkTitle field

any suggestions how to implement contains using filters?

Filtering using contains isn't implemented in the OOTB SharePoint ListViews, so you have to create your own web part or probably better use search.


I ended up modifying the library's displayform and add a query string parameter, and then Filter content using that passed parameter through the query string.
needed some javascript and an input element to redirect to the same form but with the parameter included in the URL
