    I have a requirement from our client to have a simple text search option available to them in the grid. I know that the grid filtering options cover most of this ground, but it really needs to be a search where they type and matches are made in the grid. 

    We were able to do this when we used Infragistics by customizing the group panel and making it into our search area (we have no requirement to use grouping). See attached screenshot.

    Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi George,

    You can check the Search As You Type WPF Demo as a reference on how to filter from a TextBox outside RadGridView. 

    As another example on how to achieve a similar filtering, you can download a runnable solution from our online GitHub repository here, the example is listed under GridView/Filter As You Type With FilterRow.

    Although GitHub is a very well-known platform we saw a better and easier approach for reviewing our examples we have developed our SDK Samples Browser


    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.
