Importing

Importing allows you to view or edit the predefined conditions. You can import the conditions by using methods and initial rendering.

Initial Rendering

To apply conditions initially, you can define the Rule. Here, you can import structured JSON object by defining the Rule property.

Import from JSON

You can set the conditions from structured JSON object through the setRules method.

razor
default.cs
@Html.EJS().QueryBuilder("querybuilder").Width("72%").Columns(col =>
   {
       col.Field("EmployeeID").Label("Employee ID").Type("number").Add();
       col.Field("FirstName").Label("First Name").Type("string").Add();
       col.Field("TitleOfCourtesy").Label("Title Of Courtesy").Type("boolean").Values(new List<string> { "Mr.", "Mrs." }).Add();
       col.Field("Title").Label("Title").Type("string").Add();
       col.Field("HireDate").Label("Hire Date").Type("date").Format("dd/MM/yyyy").Add();
       col.Field("Country").Label("Country").Type("string").Add();
       col.Field("City").Label("City").Type("string").Add();
   }).Render()
 @Html.EJS().Button("importrules").CssClass("e-primary").Content("Import Rule").Render()
 
 <script>
  document.getElementById('importrules').onclick = function () {
        var querybuilderObj = ej.base.getInstance(document.getElementById("querybuilder"), ej.querybuilder.QueryBuilder);
        querybuilderObj.setRules({ 'condition': 'or', 'rules': [{ 'label': 'Employee ID', 'field': 'EmployeeID', 'type': 'number', 'operator': 'equal', 'value': '1001' }] });
    }
 </script>
public ActionResult Index()
{
     return View();
}

Import From SQL

You can set the conditions from SQL query through the setRulesFromSql method.

razor
default.cs
@Html.EJS().QueryBuilder("querybuilder").Width("72%").Columns(col =>
   {
       col.Field("EmployeeID").Label("EmployeeID").Type("number").Add();
       col.Field("FirstName").Label("First Name").Type("string").Add();
       col.Field("TitleOfCourtesy").Label("Title Of Courtesy").Type("boolean").Values(new List<string> { "Mr.", "Mrs." }).Add();
       col.Field("Title").Label("Title").Type("string").Add();
       col.Field("HireDate").Label("Hire Date").Type("date").Format("dd/MM/yyyy").Add();
       col.Field("Country").Label("Country").Type("string").Add();
       col.Field("City").Label("City").Type("string").Add();
   }).Render()
   @Html.EJS().Button("importrules").CssClass("e-primary").Content("Import Rule").Render()
    <script>
        document.getElementById('importrules').onclick = function () {
            var querybuilderObj = ej.base.getInstance(document.getElementById("querybuilder"), ej.querybuilder.QueryBuilder);
            querybuilderObj.setRulesFromSql("EmployeeID = 1");
    }
 </script>
public ActionResult Index()
{
    return View();
}

Exporting

Exporting allows you to save or maintain the created conditions through the Query Builder. You can export the defined conditions by the following ways.

JSON Export

You can export the defined conditions to structured JSON object through the getRules method.

SQL Support

You can export the defined conditions to SQL query through the getRulesFromSQL method.

razor
default.cs
@Html.EJS().QueryBuilder("querybuilder").Width("72%").Columns(col =>
   {
       col.Field("EmployeeID").Label("Employee ID").Type("number").Add();
