Filter ngFor based on checkboxes on other page

Hi,

I’m creating an app which has to filter down information on another page based on checkboxes. For example i have checked the checkboxes with: milk, cheese and butter then i want to display the recipes which are 100% matched to the checked checkboxes. I’m using ionicDB to get the information.

Thanks In Advance,

Save the selections somehow locally (local storage, database, some global object) and get and use it in the list to filter.

If you are presenting the filter page as a modal you can pass data back through the onDidDismiss callback. There is an example in the Modal Controller API or check out the schedule section of the conference app for a full example of filtering.

Otherwise I would recommend using a service to hold the filter settings. That way the page displaying the recipes can get the updated filter settings from a service shared between it and the filter page.

If you still have questions try posting some of your code for us to see.
