The search grid has been included by Ted Patrick (Flex Evangelist, Adobe Systems) in his list of text filtering examples. 🙂

There is a very useful UI pattern emerging for RIA applications in terms of filtering results. Basically as a user enters data and results are filtered in real time. I have seen many cases of this recently in several applications and thought highlighting a few would be useful.

What I find interesting about these examples is that filtering simplifies the amount of visible data. Filtering removes irrelevant data from view and allows the end user to focus and work within the remaining data. The slider model allows you to set high and low bounds on the viewed dataset and the text input provides search results. It will be interesting to see changes to this pattern as we see many Flex applications appear publicly.
