Instant Search

Instant Search allows the user to search the data on the Page based on the active search field.

As the user types in the search box an index based search is performed on the search field and the data updated to show the first matching record. The current search and the number of matching records is also displayed at the top of the search field's Section.

Dynamic Data Views

Lianja is all about data centric dynamic content.

Lianja Apps are built out of pages and pages are built out of sections. Each section can be related to other sections so that when the parent section changes the child sections are re-queried and redisplayed. This all happens without coding while you are querying data.
