    i made a custom filtering in my Grid. I have a FilterCell with a "FilterClearButton" and I confirm my FilterCellEntry with the Keys "Enter" or Tab. 

    I also set these properties:

                loGridFilterCellElement:FilterButton:Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility:Collapsed
                loGridFilterCellElement:FilterOperatorText:Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility:Collapsed


    When I leave my Filtercell(CellEndEdit Event), I make a new Filterdescriptor.

             loFilterDescriptor = NEW Telerik.WinControls.Data.FilterDescriptor().
             loFilterDescriptor:Operator = Telerik.WinControls.Data.FilterOperator:Contains.
             loFilterDescriptor:PropertyName = poGridViewDataColumn:Name.
             loFilterDescriptor:IsFilterEditor = TRUE.
             loFilterDescriptor:VALUE = poVal.

    and add it to the FilterDescriptorCollection of my Grid.




    So far, there is no problem but if I filter a column for "Dom" and in my Grid there are two entries in this column with "Zöbl Dominik" and "test user" the Grid is empty. But if I enter "Zöb" in my Filtercell and leave it, the Entry "Zöbl Dominik" is shown in my Grid.


    I think i have missed some property or other setting. It seems like it is filtering with "Begins" and not contains but I already iterated through oll the FilterDescriptors of my Grid and all are with "Contains". 

    I know it is not easy to help me in that case because I made a lot of these extras myself but does anybody have an idea what i have made false?

    Hello Dominik,

    I am glad that you have resolved the issue. 

    I tried reproducing it locally without success. It appears to be related to the custom implementation you are having on your end.

    Please let me know if you need further assistance.
