Hello Yanesh,

The following demo illustrates how to change the filtering widget to a DropDownList:


You simply specify which function will return the desired widget:

e.g.
columns.Bound(p => p.YourColumn).Filterable(x=> x.UI("dropDownFilter"));

And the function that builds the drop down:
function dropDownFilter(element) {
        element.kendoDropDownList({
            dataSource: $('#grid').data('kendoGrid').dataSource,
            dataTextField: "YourColumn",
            dataValueField: "YourColumn",
            optionLabel: "--Select Value--"
        });
    }


Regards,
