Angular 6 Search Filter Pipe

Angular 6 Search Filter Pipe - Table by Columns

How to Search or Filter Table by Column?

In this article, I will share the concepts and code samples of Create a Custom Pipe for filtering or searching table by one or multiple columns data in Angular 2, 4, 5, and 6.

The following steps can be used to create a search filter for filtering table by your specific column.
1.       Create a Custom Pipe
2.       Include Custom Pipe in your Module
3.      Modify Component for Data display on HTML view for search fields
4.      Apply Custom Pipe in Component’s view to filter Table by Column
5.      Result

Create a Custom Pipe -
The first argument represents the data (customerData array) on which is applied for filters the table’s columns.

The second argument represents the one or multiple filter keys columns which is applied to filters.

The third argument represents the input filter text

grd-filter.pipe.ts -
import { Pipe, PipeTransform } from '@angular/core';

  name: 'grdFilter'
export class GrdFilterPipe implements PipeTransform {
  transform(items: any, filter: any, defaultFilter: boolean): any {
    if (!filter){
      return items;

    if (!Array.isArray(items)){
      return items;

    if (filter && Array.isArray(items)) {
      let filterKeys = Object.keys(filter);

      if (defaultFilter) {
        return items.filter(item =>
            filterKeys.reduce((x, keyName) =>
                (x && new RegExp(filter[keyName], 'gi').test(item[keyName])) || filter[keyName] == "", true));
      else {
        return items.filter(item => {
          return filterKeys.some((keyName) => {
            return new RegExp(filter[keyName], 'gi').test(item[keyName]) || filter[keyName] == "";

Include Custom Pipe in the Module - app.module.ts

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { FormsModule }   from '@angular/forms';
import {RouterModule} from '@angular/router';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { CustomerComponent } from './customer/customer.component';

import { GrdFilterPipe } from './grd-filter.pipe';

  declarations: [
  imports: [
      { path: 'customer-link', component: CustomerComponent }
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Modify Component for Data and Search Field - customer.component.ts

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';

  selector: 'app-customer',
  templateUrl: './customer.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./customer.component.css']
export class CustomerComponent implements OnInit {
  public searchText : string;
  public customerData : any;

  constructor() { }

  ngOnInit() {
    this.customerData = [
      {"name": 'Anil kumar', "Age": 34, "blog" :''},
      {"name": 'Sunil Kumar Singh', "Age": 28, "blog" :''},
      {"name": 'Sushil Singh', "Age": 24, "blog" :''},
      {"name": 'Aradhya Singh', "Age": 5, "blog" :''},
      {"name": 'Reena Singh', "Age": 28, "blog" :''},
      {"name": 'Alok Singh', "Age": 35, "blog" :''},
      {"name": 'Dilip Singh', "Age": 34, "blog" :''}];

Apply Custom Pipe in Component's view to filter Table by Column - customer.component.html

<input [(ngModel)]="searchText" placeholder="Search.." class="advancedSearchTextbox">
<table *ngFor="let emp of customerData | grdFilter: {name: searchText, Age:searchText,  blog: searchText}; let i=index;">
    <td style="width: 5%;">{{i +1}}</td>
    <td style="width: 10%;">{{}}</td>
    <td style="width: 5%;">{{emp.Age}}</td>
    <td style="width: 15%;">{{}}</td>
