    I have form which TopMost property is true. Now I have added one RADGrid View and assign data into it.

    The custom filter dialog is not displayed because my form is TopMost = true.
    I think that filter dialog is hidded because my form is always on top !

    Hi Divyesh Chapaneri,

    Thank you for writing. You are correct, the top most parent form hides the custom filter dialog. I have scheduled a fix for that problem for the next release - Q1 2009.

    Hi Jordan,

    hm, I´m afraid seven years later this bug is still (or again) up and running?

    We have the exact same problem with RadGridView of Version 2016.2.503.40.

    This is actually quite urgent, because we need the custom filter features and the form HAS TO BE TOPMOST, because its an excel addin and the form will "disappear" behind the excel window when clicking in a cell.

    What can we do about this?

    Thanks for any recommendation in advance

    Hello Ronald,

    Thank you for writing.

    I was able to reproduce this and this behaviour is expected when your form is TopMost. In this case, you can make the dialog TopMost as well:
    public RadForm2()
        radGridView1.CreateCompositeFilterDialog += RadGridView1_CreateCompositeFilterDialog;
    private void RadGridView1_CreateCompositeFilterDialog(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewCreateCompositeFilterDialogEventArgs e)
        e.Dialog.TopMost = true;

    We are not considering this as an issue at this point and we do not want to make this dialog TopMost by default.

    I hope this will be useful.

    Hi Dimitar,

    that was easy :-)

    Perfectly sufficient for our purposes, thank you.

    Have a nice weekend
