Hi all, I have Recently faced an issue while adding the out of box filter web part in SharePoint list view page, after setting the filter connections the filter has not applied properly so I have analyzed and find the solution, that we need to do little change in list view web part to make filter web part work, please find the steps to add the filter web part and work around for the same to make it work properly

1) Edit the list view page and add the below filter web parts Text filters is to enter the filter value and apply filter button is to show result when the user click on the button
