Search in a custom list

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to create a search component that will search records in a custom list. So I’ve created a custom list connected to the table, set the record limit to 20000, and added {{tb_search_input}} as described here - Custom Component | Tadabase

I have succeeded in making it work but the issue is what the records are showing even if the input is empty. If initially hide it in CSS with ‘display:none’, it will be hidden after clicking on a search button as well. I guess the whole component gets rerendered after clicking on ‘search’ or ‘clear’

Here is the code:


<div id="search-component">
    <button id="search-expander-button" class="btn-expand">חיפוס</button>
    <div id="search-wrapper" class="search-menu hidden collapsed">
        <div id="search-element">
        <ul class="search-results">
            {{#each records}}
                    <a href="dh-1/details/{{field_522}}"><span>{{field_281}} | {{field_141}} | {{field_154}}</span></a>


#search-wrapper {
    background-color: #fff;
    border-radius: 10px;
    transition: width 2s, height 2s, background-color 2s, transform 2s;
    z-index: 5;
    position: absolute;

.btn-expand {
    display: block;
    width: 100%;
    border-radius: 10px;
    background-color: #fff;
    border: none;
    padding: 8px 15px;
    margin: 10px auto;

.btn-expand:hover {
    box-shadow: inset -1px -1px 7px #bbb7b7;

.btn-expand:active {
    box-shadow: inset 1px 1px 3px 2px #bbb7b7;

.search-results {
    list-style: none;
    /* width: 18vw; */
    /* max-height: 300px; */
    overflow: scroll;
    /* margin: 3px; */
    /* margin-top: 0; */
    padding: 11px;
    text-align: left;

.search-results li a {
    color: black;

#search-element {

    padding: 5px 10px;
    margin: auto auto 0;

.collapsed {
    width: 0;
    height: 0;
    animation: unwrap 1s;

.collapsible {
    width: 280px;
    height: 380px;
    overflow: hidden;

@keyframes unwrap {
    from {
        width: 280px;
        height: 0;


let searchExpanderButton = document.querySelector('#search-expander-button');
let searchWrapper = document.querySelector('#search-wrapper');

searchExpanderButton.addEventListener('click', (e) => {

Have your tried in Search results tab, clicking “only upon search”
and not allowing search if one specific field is blank?
I do it that way. B.R. Robert.
