Adjustment of options when smart filtering.

In my list page, the list table has custom field column.
Its field’s type is “post”, but the post type is custom.

When I go to the list page and do smart filtering by the custom field, its options are posts of all post type after ajax searching.
I want to filter the options by the post type that the custom field relates.
What is good way to implement this?

We don’t have a specific hook to change this.
But you can use the pre_get_posts hook and check for our request variables to change the post type for the running query. You probably want to perform some additional checks, like column name etc. But a snippet could look something like this.

add_action( 'pre_get_posts', function ( WP_Query $query ) {
	if ( filter_input( INPUT_POST, 'action' ) !== 'acp_search_comparison_request' || filter_input( INPUT_POST, 'method' ) !== 'get_options' ) {

	$column_name = filter_input( INPUT_POST, 'column' );
	// Do some additional column checks

	$query->set('post_type', ['my_custom_post_type', 'extra_post_type']);
} );

I’m also curious on how to get this to work. I tried the code above, but I all I get is ‘No Results Found’ when I tried to filter.

Just to be sure, did you change the post types I used in my example?
If so, can you send me the exact snippet that you used for your use case?
Based on your previous support questions, I know that you’re using ACF, so is there a reason why you don’t use the ACF column from our integration?
