Custom Facet for alphabet.

I'm working on a search page that allows the user to sort alphabetically.

The only problem I'm facing is the facet is only displaying letters that exist.

Current: A B C D I

Goal: A B C D E F ....... Z

I was thinking about altering the dom to add the missing letters, but when you click it removes them. So I'm thinking that approach has some unknown problems I will run into.

How would you go about achieving the goal?

You should implement your own custom component for this task. The custom component would add an advanced query filter expression like `@field==SelectedLetter`.

Ok, that's good I was thinking I would need to create my own component.

Could you elaborate more on the advance query filter expression?
