Just two days ago we received a request to that effect:]]>
With FilterZen, you can achieve this easily by configuring a FilterZen Filter Web Part as follows...]]>
We received one enquiry about programmatically creating and setting up the Web Part: a use case that was intriguing enough to warrant the following (code-heavy) tutorial.]]>
