    I have created RadFilterDataFieldEditor by following article: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/filter/error-when-building-custom-radfilterdatafieldeditor.aspx
    It works good if the FilterContainerID property is not set. If I set this property to my RadGrid it does not work correctly.
    Editor is shown ok if I add filter expression, but after I click the Apply button, default editor is shown instead RadFilterDataFieldEditor. After next postback I get error with invalid viewstate data.

    Here is the Code:
    <telerik:RadFilter runat="server" ID="filter" FilterContainerID="articles" ShowApplyButton="true"
            <telerik:RadFilterTextFieldEditor FieldName="Title" />
            <km:RadFilterDropDownEditor DataSourceID="dsStates" DataTextField="Name" DataValueField="ArticleStatusId"
                FieldName="StatusId" />
            <telerik:RadFilterTextFieldEditor FieldName="AuthorFullName" />
            <telerik:RadFilterNumericFieldEditor FieldName="Rating" />
            <telerik:RadFilterNumericFieldEditor FieldName="TimesRated" />
            <telerik:RadFilterDateFieldEditor FieldName="CreatedDate" />
            <telerik:RadFilterDateFieldEditor FieldName="ModifiedDate" />
    <telerik:RadGrid ID="articles" runat="server" OnNeedDataSource="articles_NeedDataSource"
        EnableLinqExpressions="false" ShowFooter="True" AllowFilteringByColumn="True"
        AllowSorting="True" ShowGroupPanel="True" AllowPaging="true" PageSize="10">
        <MasterTableView AutoGenerateColumns="False" EnableHeaderContextMenu="true" IsFilterItemExpanded="false">
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Title" HeaderText="Title" />
                <telerik:GridDropDownColumn DataField="StatusId" HeaderText="Status" DataSourceID="dsStates" ListTextField="Name" ListValueField="ArticleStatusId" />
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="AuthorFullName" HeaderText="Author" />
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Rating" HeaderText="Rating" />
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="TimesRated" HeaderText="TimesRated" />
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="CreatedDate" HeaderText="Created" />
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ModifiedDate" HeaderText="Modified" />
        <GroupingSettings ShowUnGroupButton="true" CaseSensitive="false" />
        <ClientSettings AllowDragToGroup="True" AllowColumnsReorder="True" />

    protected void filter_FieldEditorCreating(object sender, RadFilterFieldEditorCreatingEventArgs e)
        if (e.EditorType == "RadFilterDropDownEditor")
            e.Editor = new RadFilterDropDownEditor();

    Thank you

    Hi Jiri,

    I am afraid that with custom editors RadFilter does not support automatically filtering on container. You should manually apply the expressions to RadGrid. For your convenience I am attaching sample app demonstrating how to achieve this.
