Search by pattern like "(Sec 1)"

Hi!

I have a datasource of Names. Each name will end with a pattern that's like "(Sec 1)", "(Sec 2), "(Sec 3)", etc..

E.g. "John Smith (Sec 1)", "Jane Doe (Sec 1)", "John Doe (Sec 2)".

How can I enable the user to just type in "(Sec N)" and return all the columns that have "(Sec N)" at the end of their name?

Thanks!

    You can over-ride the existing search control and disable the smart search() - this means that the characters must be sequential. That gives you something like this,
