    I have a column for which i need to truncate the display of string after particular delimiter.

    Hello Xaria D,

    Seems like using converter is the best approach in this case. Just apply your converter to the DataMemberBinding of the column and you will see the converter result:

    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding FirstName, Converter={StaticResource Myconverter}" IsReadOnly="True">

    Best wishes,

    When applying a converter to the GridViewDataColumn.DataMemberBinding, the results are totally as expected. However, the filter box does not take notice of the converter, I'm wondering if this is by design or a bug.

    I'm also facing the same problem, I have applied a converter to DataMemberBinding, but filter doesn't take this converter into account..
    Checkboxes that appear in filtering control shows the values that are displayed (after calling converter), but typing the same values in textbox that is shown below doesn't filter on those displayed values.

    Is there a way to achieve the filtering based on the converted values from the textbox.
