Filter a Standard Object ListView With a Field Value

Hi All,

We need to filter a standard listview based on a field value.

Could someone please let us know how to acomplish this.

Thanks and Regards,

There are a couple of ways of doing this.

A) Using StandardSetController
B) Using Metadata API and then rolling up your own SOQL query.

You can follow this detailed post (http://salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/3561/standardsetcontroller-list-instatiation-and-setfilterid/3604#3604) for more details.

I hope this helps.
