AngularJS multiple filter with custom filter function

The question:

I am trying to filter the list with multiple filters + with a custom filter function.

The original working jsfiddle example is but now I want to change the way age are being filter.

I want to add a custom filter so that age it filter based on two input value which is min_age and max_age , (between age) .

After looking into doc. I found people having similar questions and a user Mark Rajcok answer looks good and should be working. But I am having problem applying it into my codes which mainly seems to because I have other multiple filters.

Im very new to AngularJS 🙁

My tried and NOT working fiddle is here

A copy paste of my NOT working codes are here


<div ng-app ng-controller="MainController">
<table class="fancyTable">
        <th>Player id</th>
        <th>Player name</th>
        <td><input ng-model="player_id" /></td>
        <td><input ng-model="player_name" /></td>
            Min Age:<input ng-model="min_age" />
            Max Age:<input ng-model="max_age" />
    <tr ng-repeat="player in players | filter:{id: player_id, name:player_name, age:ageFilter}">


function MainController($scope) {

$scope.player_id = "";
$scope.player_name = "";
$scope.player_age = "";
$scope.min_age = 0;
$scope.max_age = 999999999;

$scope.ageFilter = function(player) {
    return ( player > $scope.min_age && player.age < $scope.max_age);

$scope.players = [
        {"name": "Rod Laver",
            "id": "rod",
            "date": "1938/8/9",
            "imageUrl": "img/rod-laver.gif",
            "age": 75},
        {"name": "Boris Becker", 
            "id": "borix",
            "date": "1967/11/22",
            "imageUrl": "img/boris-becker.gif",
            "age": 45},
        {"name": "John McEnroe",
            "id": "mcenroe",
            "date": "1959/2/16",
            "imageUrl": "img/john-mc-enroe.gif",
            "age": 54},
        {"name": "Rafa Nadal",
            "id": "nadal",

The Solutions:

Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.

Method 1

Try this:

<tr ng-repeat="player in players | filter:{id: player_id, name:player_name} | filter:ageFilter">

$scope.ageFilter = function (player) {
    return (player.age > $scope.min_age && player.age < $scope.max_age);

Method 2

Hope below answer in this link will help,
Multiple Value Filter

And take a look into the fiddle with example

arrayOfObjectswithKeys | filterMultiple:{key1:['value1','value2','value3',...etc],key2:'value4',key3:[value5,value6,...etc]}


Method 3

In view file (HTML or EJS)

<div ng-repeat="item in vm.itemList  | filter: myFilter > </div>

and In Controller

$scope.myFilter = function(item) {
return (item.propertyA === 'value' || item.propertyA === 'value');
