This was a request that came from a client.
I beleive that they want to display a table of items. Lets say books for this example. They then want the user to be able to sort the table on any of the table columns and also find any books that match a wild card on any column. That is the basic requirements.
They then also want to be able to duplicate the views functionality within Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011. Views basically store what columns to display in the table, any selection or filtering criteria and the ordering of records. The user then has a drop down selection of views they can select to see different views of the data in the table.
A view may be "computer text books"
That has columns title,topic,publisher,published and price
the selection criteria of type = "text book" and area = "computer"
Another view may be "kindle gardening books"
That has columns title,description,sze and price
the selection criteria of format = digital and area = "gardening"
When a user selects a view the tables data eflects what is in the view.
I hope this helps explain the client requirements
