    I'd like to customize RadListFilterPopup. I need to display in it only "Available Filters" directly, meens without menu element (attachement 1), like filters in GridViewRowElement. I have to use  excel-like filtering instead of clasic GridViewRowElement becouse in some columns I need checkbox list filter which is given in excel-like filtering.

    I write below snippet:

    void radGridView1_FilterPopupRequired(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.FilterPopupRequiredEventArgs e)
                RadListFilterPopup popup = (RadListFilterPopup)e.FilterPopup;

                var radMenuItems = ((RadMenuItem)popup.Items[1]).Items;



    It works fine - displays only "Available Filters". But the problem is that after clicking on some element (e.g "Start with" ) the "blue dialog" appears under the filter list, or in another words, filter list isn't closed ( it is closed after click on "blue dialog" ).


    1) How can I close filter list, after clicking on one of it element

    2) Is there a simpler way to assign only "Available filters" to filter icon (without rest standard content of RadListFilterPopup) - e.g. use another FilterPopup?

    thanks in Advance.

    Hi Argos,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    Indeed, in this case the cleanest solution would be to use a custom RadListFilterPopup, for example you can use the following class:
    public class MyFilterPopup : RadListFilterPopup
        private RadListFilterPopup otherPopup;
        public MyFilterPopup(GridViewDataColumn dataColumn, RadListFilterPopup otherPopup)
            : base(dataColumn)
            this.otherPopup = otherPopup;
        protected override void OnPopupOpened()
            RadItemOwnerCollection radMenuItems = ((RadMenuItem)otherPopup.Items[1]).Items;
            foreach (RadMenuItem item in radMenuItems)
                item.MouseUp += OnFilterMenuItemMouseUp;
        protected virtual void OnFilterMenuItemMouseUp(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
            foreach (RadMenuItem item in this.Items)
                item.MouseUp -= OnFilterMenuItemMouseUp;

    We hook the MouseUp event on each Item in the collection and hide the popup manually. The popup can be used as follows:
    this.grid.FilterPopupRequired += (s, e) =>
        RadListFilterPopup oldPopup = (RadListFilterPopup)e.FilterPopup;
        GridViewDataColumn currentColumn = (s as GridHeaderCellElement).ColumnInfo as GridViewDataColumn;
        RadListFilterPopup popup = new MyFilterPopup(currentColumn, oldPopup);
        e.FilterPopup = popup;

    I hope this will help.
