    So I love the Filtering feature of the RadGridView.  However, the Filter dialog box includes a "Filter" button which doesn't really seem to serve much purpose.  If I select a filter and close the dialog, my filter is applied (in fact, my filter is applied before I close it).  Having the filter button there as well seems to confuse some of our users.  Is there a way to make the filter button disappear?

    Hello David,

    This button can be used when the user types in something in the two text-boxes. Anyway, you can easily edit the control template of the FilteringControl and simply hide the button in case you don't want it there. 

    This forum post described how to hide the "Select All" option, but your case is quite similar -- you will hide the Filter button from the control template. Don't delete it -- simply hide it.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Dominik,

    My mistake, sorry about that. This should be the correct link.

    What about the other way around?

    I would like to turn off the automatic filtering that happens when I click the checkboxes and make all the filtering apply when I click the Filter button.

    Regards,
    Håkan

    Hello Håkan,

    We have planned a major overhaul of the filtering control which we hope to roll out for Q3 2011. One of the features will be the so called "Deferred Filtering Mode" which will do exactly what you have described. It will filter only when the button is clicked. You can vote for this feature here.
