When using filtering in the grid does anyone know if there is a way to convert the filter icon into a dropdown list of the valid operators?

Instead of filtering each column when the user selects a filter item, we want to be able to allow them to select the filter values across multiple columns, then do a single postback to the server to get the new filtered data.  When the filter icon is displayed, it is hard to tell if a user has already selected an operator or not for that given column.

Thanks!

Hi Richard,

Here is a help article which explains how to achieve filtering with DropDownList. Go through it and see if it helps.
Filtering with MS DropDownList instead of textbox

You can also go through the following help article to get information about changing the filter icon.

Thanks

Thanks for your reply Shinu.  I wasn't looking for a way to change the Textbox into a dropdown.  I am looking for a way to change the filter icon and it's operators into a Dropdown.  Any examples?
