    Is it posible in RadGridView to search data from the grid when you press Ctrl+F combination (Like DevExpress GridView component)?

    If this is not possible you can do this in next version. This is very confortable.

    Best regards!

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. Currently, RadGridView does not suggest such a built-in functionality.

    In order to detect the Ctrl + F combination and show a search window, I can suggest you is to handle the KeyDown event of the grid.

    For example:

    private void clubsGrid_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
        if(e.Key == Key.F &&  Keyboard.Modifiers == ModifierKeys.Control)

    The content of the control may be a custom user control that will be responsible for searching the items. As an example you may take a look at this blog post for a reference. In your case the searching TextBox should be defined in your custom user control.
