Datatable filtering

I’m just starting to evaluate the Webix datatable. Most of the features are great but I’ve had a great deal of difficulty figuring out how to do filtering. I want to create a filter that searches all columns of a table, and have no need of filtering on individual columns. It would be similar to this example:

After a lot of tinkering I finally got it to work, but one issue I have is that the search box doesn’t have a “clear” icon. So to clear the search the user has to backspace through the entered text or select it then delete. This is annoying and inconvenient. I found that I can add an icon to do this, but that should be built-in to the search box. There is actually a search icon but it’s useless because the search is activated as you type characters, and the search icon actually does nothing. This is a very strange implementation.

Also, it appears that I would have to duplicate the code in that sample for every individual table, of which I will have about 10. This, needless to say, is a pain and should be completely unnecessary. Is there a way to create a generic function that can be used to apply the same type of filtering to all tables?

In other grids I have looked at, this type of filter is built in and requires just setting one option to implement. You should do it the same way. I like the other features of your grid, and the speed, but this may be a deal-breaker for me.
