In my Kendo.Grid I have:

columns.Bound(c => c.FORMRIGHTTYPEID).Width("25").Title("Form Right").HtmlAttributes(new { @class = "text-align: center;" })
  .Template(@<text>
    @if (item.FORMRIGHTTYPEID != null)
    {
      @DisplayRight((long)item.FORMRIGHTTYPEID)
    }
    </text>);

Note that I am displaying a text value associated w/the FORMRIGHTTYPEID numeric value.  I have made the grid "Filterable":

@(Html.Kendo().Grid<EPIMS.Models.FORMRIGHTS>()

...

...

.Scrollable()
.Groupable()
.Sortable()
.Filterable(filterable => filterable
                .Extra(false)
                .Operators(operators => operators
                .ForString(str => str.Clear()
                .Contains("Contains")
)))
.Pageable(pageable => pageable
.Refresh(true)
.PageSizes(true)
.ButtonCount(5))
.BindTo(Model)

)

 

My problem is that the Filter option shows "Show items with value that: Is equal to" but does not allow me to enter text.  Rather (and as expected), the value MUST BE numeric as the column is bound to a numeric value field.

Is it possible to customize the Filter?

 Thanks

Hello Aaron,

 

In order to customize the filter please use the columns.filterable.ui. Also please review the Grid / Filter menu customization for a live demo that uses this approach.

I found that adding the Description to my Model and binding that ​value to the Grid column was the easiest way to do.  Thanks.
