I'm afraid that this scenario is not supported, as RadDataFilter uses the regular FilterDescriptor class, which filters on the Member-Operator-Value pattern, whereas filtering RadGridView with a RadExpressionEditor uses the FilterDescriptor<T> class, which filters using a LINQ expression directly. Unfortunately, these two data structures are incompatible.
