Read - browse selectable

Endpoint GET /<plural-segment>/selectable-list/{page}

Where <plural-segment> is the pluralized name of your domain class, e.g., for the class Sloth, the endpoint would be GET /sloths/selectable-list/{page}. The {page} parameter is of type ushort and represents the position in the paginated list.

This endpoint is used to support selectable lists in dropdown controls with backend search functionality.

Refer to the Endpoint segments section for information on changing the way the plural segment name is generated for your API types. By default, the pluralization follows standard English rules.

Response Codes

  • 200 OK: Returns a PagedResults<BaseEntityDto> object containing the paginated list of selectable DTOs.
  • 404 Not Found: Returns a NotFoundResult if no items are found.
  • 400 Bad Request: Returns a BadRequestResult if the request is invalid.

Request Parameters

The browse selectable endpoint requires the page parameter in the path and an query parameter containing fields used for filtering and sorting the browsed list of objects. The query parameter includes:

  • Rows: (ushort) Specifies the number of items on the paginated page.
  • SortDirection: (string) Specifies the sorting direction (accepted values: asc, desc).
  • SortBy: (string) Specifies the name of the class property to sort by.

Field for Filtering: You need to configure the field for filtering this type of object, which is compared to the Search field from the query. Refer to the Entity Configuration section for more details.
