Good morning,

I'm trying to bind a FilterDescriptor value to the tag value of a treeview item. Is this possible?

I have the following code but it doesn't work:

<telerikData:FilterDescriptor Member="ParkID" Operator="IsEqualTo" Value="{Binding ElementName=treeParks, Path=SelectedItem.Tag}" />

Thank you for your time,

Rob

I found the following post which is along the lines of what I'm looking for (scroll to the bottom of the forum post for Silverlight Demo):
http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/silverlight/gridview/mvvm-search-as-you-type.aspx

I changed my project as per what I can see in the example.

Added this class to my project - CustomFilterDescriptor:
{
    public class CustomFilterDescriptor : FilterDescriptorBase
    {
        private RadGridView grid;
        private readonly CompositeFilterDescriptor compositeFilterDesriptor;
        private static readonly ConstantExpression TrueExpression = System.Linq.Expressions.Expression.Constant(true);
        private string filterValue;
 
        public CustomFilterDescriptor(RadGridView source)
        {
            this.compositeFilterDesriptor = new CompositeFilterDescriptor();
            this.compositeFilterDesriptor.LogicalOperator = FilterCompositionLogicalOperator.Or;
 
            this.grid = source;
        }
 
        public string FilterValue
        {
            get
            {
                return this.filterValue;
            }
            set
            {
                if (this.filterValue != value)
                {
                    this.filterValue = value;
                    this.UpdateCompositeFilterValues();
                    this.OnPropertyChanged("FilterValue");
                }
            }
        }
 
        protected override System.Linq.Expressions.Expression CreateFilterExpression(ParameterExpression parameterExpression)
        {
            if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.FilterValue))
            {
                return TrueExpression;
            }
            try
            {
                return this.compositeFilterDesriptor.CreateFilterExpression(parameterExpression);
            }
            catch
            {
            }
 
            return TrueExpression;
        }
 
        private IFilterDescriptor CreateFilterForColumn(GridViewDataColumn column)
        {
            FilterOperator filterOperator = GetFilterOperatorForType(column.DataType);
            FilterDescriptor descriptor = new FilterDescriptor(column.UniqueName, filterOperator, this.filterValue);
            descriptor.MemberType = column.DataType;
 
            return descriptor;
        }
 
        private static FilterOperator GetFilterOperatorForType(Type dataType)
        {
            return dataType == typeof(string) ? FilterOperator.Contains : FilterOperator.IsEqualTo;
        }
 
        private void UpdateCompositeFilterValues()
        {
            this.compositeFilterDesriptor.FilterDescriptors.Clear();
 
            foreach (GridViewDataColumn column in grid.Columns.OfType<GridViewDataColumn>())
            {
                this.compositeFilterDesriptor.FilterDescriptors.Add(this.CreateFilterForColumn(column));
            }
 
            foreach (FilterDescriptor descriptor in this.compositeFilterDesriptor.FilterDescriptors)
            {
                object convertedValue = DefaultValue(descriptor.MemberType);
 
                try
                {
                    convertedValue = Convert.ChangeType(this.FilterValue, descriptor.MemberType, CultureInfo.CurrentCulture);
                }
                catch
                {
                }
 
                if (descriptor.MemberType.IsAssignableFrom(typeof(DateTime)))
                {
                    DateTime date;
                    if (DateTime.TryParse(this.FilterValue, out date))
                    {
                        convertedValue = date;
                    }
 
                }
 
                descriptor.Value = convertedValue;
            }
        }
 
        private static object DefaultValue(Type type)
        {
            if (type.IsValueType)
            {
                return Activator.CreateInstance(type);
            }
 
            return null;
        }
    }
}



Altertered my TreeView markup to: *** some how I need to bind to the SelectedItem Tag property ***
<telerik:RadTreeView Name="treeParks" Grid.Row="1" Margin="8" IsRootLinesEnabled="False" IsLineEnabled="True" SelectedItem="{Binding Filter.FilterValue, Mode=TwoWay}">
            </telerik:RadTreeView>

My GridView markup is:
<telerik:RadGridView x:Name="gridAddresses" Grid.Column="2" IsFilteringAllowed="False">
 </telerik:RadGridView>

Added the following C# code/method:
CustomFilterDescriptor _Filter;
public CustomFilterDescriptor Filter
{
    get
    {
        if (_Filter == null)
        {
            _Filter = new CustomFilterDescriptor(gridAddresses);
            gridAddresses.FilterDescriptors.Add(_Filter);
        }
        return _Filter;
    }
}


Do you have any thoughts on what's going wrong?

Thank you again for your time and help.

Hi,

 What was the result after you tried the suggestion in the forum post (that I suggested you before)? I am a little bit confused from your second reply. Where do you use the code snippet from your first post:

<telerikData:FilterDescriptor Member="ParkID" Operator="IsEqualTo" Value="{Binding ElementName=treeParks, Path=SelectedItem.Tag}" />

All the best,
