Hello

Is there a way to change out the Field List on the fly?

Do I use setOptions like other widgets to change out the field list or do i change the datasource?  

Anyone have an example?  The published API is a little limited.

Thank you

Jeff

Hello

Tried a few things and came up with the below:

var newfields = [];
newfields.push({name: "Field 1", type: "string", label: "NEW Field 1" });
var filter = $("#viewdialogfiltercreator").getKendoFilter().setOptions({
            expressionPreview: true,
            fields: newfields,
            applyButton: false
            //expression: existingwhereexpression
});

Hello Jeff,

Indeed calling the setOptions method is the way to go for this scenario as the widget in this case will re-initialize everything inside thus applying the new changes. Do not hestitate us to contact us again if you have any queries in regards of our controls.

Hello

For those that follow...

This does not quite work.  It puts an error into the console. I had to create a datasource with all the fields and then tie the datasource to the filter.
