    Hi Chamara,

    Can you confirm that you have assigned the custom class in the FieldEditorCreating event?
    protected void RadFilter1_FieldEditorCreating(object sender, RadFilterFieldEditorCreatingEventArgs e)
        if (e.EditorType == "RadFilterDropDownEditor")
            e.Editor = new RadFilterDropDownEditor();

    If this is not the issue, please share your code, so we can look for any possible mistakes.
