I am not sure about the exact implementation here but the filter controls should be initialized inside the GridFilterItem
cells. That said you should be able to access the container using the following code.
TableCell cell = (RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.FilteringItem)
Have in mind that if the logic will be used inside the page load event you should ensure that the grid is already initialized.
Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans?
Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed?
