    I have a RadGrid with a GridTemplateColumn that has a label inside it. This label is populated after the initial datatable is bound to the grid.

    Is there any way that I can filter on the contents of this label without having it in my initial datatable?

    Here is my template column

    <telerik:GridTemplateColumn AllowFiltering="true" HeaderText="Type(s)" UniqueName="column10"
                        AutoPostBackOnFilter="true" ShowFilterIcon="false">
            <asp:Label ID="LocationTypeLabel" runat="server"></asp:Label>

    This is how I populate the label. The datatable _dtTypes is actually the second table returned in the dataset whereas the first table is the datasource of the grid.

    For Each dr As DataRow In _dtTypes.Select("CustomerID = " & e.Item.DataItem("CustomerID"))
      lbl.Text = lbl.Text & dr("LocationType") & ", "

    Hi Alexander,

    All data related operations (like filtering, sorting, grouping, etc.) are performed on the underlying data source and on a specific data field. With that in mind, it is not possible to filter the content of the displayed value in your GridTemplateColumn, unless you have a data field in your data source with that content.

    Hope this helps.
