    Hello, I have been poking around the documentation, trying to find out if "ShowDistinctFilters" does what I want..
    However, all I am able to find is "Gets or sets a value indicating whether this column will show distinct filters.".
    That is taken from http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/p_telerik_windows_controls_gridviewcolumn_showdistinctfilters.html

    Is there a more helpful documentation available somewhere I am not finding?

    What I want, by the way, is making a DateTime column not show every single time that is listed in the column with a checkbox, but still give the user the ability to filter using a date/time picker (from-to)

      // Regards, Morten

    Hi Morten,

    The ShowDistinctFilters indicates whether the user will see the distinct values in the filtering control or not.
    When it is set to false, then only the down half of the filtering control will be used for filtering. I have attached an image to illustrate that.

     We would update the help documentation if you are more specific and suggest us what kind of information would be helpful to be there. 

    As to your requirement, do you need a filtering control like the one shown in this online demo

    All the best,

    Thanks, so the option did do what I thought it would.

    To improve the documentation, all that would be needed, in this instance, is to change the text to something like this:
    "Gets or sets a value indicating whether a list of every available value, with a checkbox, is shown in the filter dropdown."

    Also, if you could somehow add screenshots illustrating what each option changes to the documentation, that would be awesome :)

    Oh, and if the same text was available in the visual studio properties window while editing xaml, that would be a good thing.
    It might already be, but I am using dlls checked into tfs and I might have missed copying some xml files..

    Yes, something like that demo is what I had in mind, but I'm going to pass on that for now - if the users want it after seeing the default behaviour, I will look into adding that then.
