Just to be clear:  Are you trying to have the filtering occur wholly on the client's side (i.e. via Javascript), or do you actually want to perform an entire post back to the server to effect the filter?

Side note:  For your comment (i.e. the "IMPORTANT NOTE"), you are actually using a client-side comment. This text will be sent back to end-user's machine, and they will be able to view the note by simply viewing the source of your page (as any browser can do). I think you meant to use a server-side comment instead:

e.g.

@* IMPORTANT NOTE:
   We have to use... *@

The filter just filters the data.  There will be no updating the database. The original plan was to do it on the client side. I am told that it should be quick and simple "yea right".

So I already have the data back from the database, I am thinking that I can just do some kind of jquery/ query to filter the view.
  ........Am I close or far off
