In addition to the other new improvements we've introduced throughout the suite, we also now have a new dialog which integrates RadGridView with the new RadDataFilter control (introduced in our previous release). The objective of CompositeDataFilterForm is to allow your end users to build flexible filters with ease. The intuitive UI of RadDataFilter allows the user to specify simple and complex filters, by creating conditions that narrow down the data into simply what a user needs. This is achieved through predefined fields, filter options based on the type of data and also data aware editors.
To show the CompositeDataFilterForm, the end user can simply select the Custom menu item from filter button drop down and build the desired filter expression. When OK button is pressed the built expression is applied to the selected column of RadGridView.
With R1 2017 we introduced support for Visual Studio 2017 RC, and we have now revamped our installers to install the VSIX package so you can take advantage of it without the need to install it separately. This package allows you to configure and upgrade your project, fine-tune the toolbox and include a variety of forms in your application. It also includes the recently introduced Converter Tool that helps you convert your standard Windows Forms to Telerik UI for WinForms, giving them a modern look and feel and a feature boost.
