When creating the RadFilter control (or any other Rad control for that matter) in the Page_Load event you should first add its sub controls to its Controls Collection (as in the case of the field editors) and afterwards set their properties so that they properly track their ViewState. An alternative approach is to use the Page_Init event, as pointed out in my previous post, when ViewState for tha page and the controls on it has not yet been loaded.
