Automatically Set Filter After Load?

Let me preface this by saying that I have not worked in php or general Web coding in about 13 years, so a lot of this is new, and the rest is taking its time coming back. That said, I'm trying to see if there's a method that could be applied to set a default filter once a record set is loaded.

I know I can set a filter for the query with the setConfig('sqlfilters' option, but in this case I'm trying to do it after the initial query returns. The idea being that I don't want to limit the number of records returned in the query, but want to initially limit the records displayed. Then the user could clear/change the filter if he needed to see additional rows. Is this possible?

I don't think this possible from the configuration.

Solutions i can think of :
- All the filters are in the URL, decode the url and set the filter there and encode again.
- Do the normal query and use the filters on the page to get to the state you want and hand the users the complete url

Will the process of decoding and encoding again slow everything down?
