    In the Rad Controls Prometheus, filtering textual data with the 'Contains' menu option matched the filtering item without concern for the case of the text.  This is no longer true with the new RadControls for ASPNET AJAX Q1 2008.

    For example, in a column of textual data that contains the names of cities, the previous version (Prometheus) would find 'Chicago' entered in any case or mixture of cases: 'chic', 'CHIC', 'Chic'.  Now, the Q1 2008 controls requires the user to key the exact case match as the data that they are searching for--filtering will fail if the user types, 'CHIC' or 'chic'.  In this case, the use must filter on 'Chic'.

    How can I get the new RadGrid to ignore case when filtering textual data?

    Thank You,

    David Nowak.

    David, do you use the NET 3.5 build of the grid? If so, check whether setting the EnableLinqExpressions property of the control to false fixes the problem. I found that it helps in one of my pages when using custom filtering criteria.

    Kiara,

    Thank you--this indeed did work.  I'm not thrilled that I will have to make this change to every instance of the grid that I have used throughout my application--but at least it works.

    Again, thank you,

    David.

    Setting this value to false did not fix my problem.  I am using a hotfix version 

    Telerik.Web.UI_2008_1_606_dev_hotfix

    Any other thoughts on ways to get the grid filter to ignore case?

    Hi Ted,

    Can you please verify that you followed the upgrade instructions from this KB article on our site? Generally, the hotfix build you applied should work in the same way as the latest official version 2008.1.515 of RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX.

    If the issue persists, please isolate a small working version of your project and send it enclosed to a formal support ticket. I will test it locally and will get back to you with my findings.
