    Double-Restricted Search (by Category & by ElementTemplate)

    bperry

      I'm trying to do an element search restricted not only by ElementTemplate but also by a Category.

       

      After performing the initial filtering by ElementTemplate and receiving the AFNamedCollectionList<AFElement>, I am at a loss as to how to proceed and filter this list efficiently by Category.

       

      For-nexting through each result might be less crazy than it sounds if the elements are bulk loaded, but at 2,000 elements, I'd be interested in a single call.

       

      A workaround could be replacing the Category restriction (e.g. Active Device) with a hierarchical parent (also called Active Device), for use in AFElement.FindElementsByTemplate, but this creates artificial hierarchy requirements in this situation where I find a category much more appealing.

       

      Any ideas?
