Currently using the Column Menu Checkbox Filter in several places in our grid. It innately works great, but our client wants us to remove the additional step of selecting the "Filter" button to apply the filter from the column menu, and instead wants the columns to filter on selection of the checkboxes in the column menu filter itself. I have noticed that most things on this component aren't exposed, and even the example in the documentation of adding a custom UI, the UI provided to the component does not contain the Filter and clear button, but they still appear - as a footer perhaps? - any way of accomplishing this would be greatly appreciated, thanks for your time!

Hello, Aaron,

With the current implementation of the GridColumnMenuFilter component, there is no property that allows hiding or showing the `Filter` and `Clear` buttons. In addition, it is only possible to apply the filtering when the `Filter` button is clicked which calls the onFilterChange function. Basically, it is rendered inside a form, and in the submit method of the form we call the `onFilterChange` method that accepts the event from the submit method in one of its properties.

Therefore, I would suggest submitting a feature request for adding a property that shows/hides the `Filter` and `Clear` buttons (such that when they are hidden the filter is automatically applied) in our feedback portal where new ideas are constantly being evaluated and the most popular ones are implemented in future releases:

If you have any further questions on this matter, please let me know.

Regards,
