    I am a new user to Kendo and using Grids for a ASP.NET MVC project.   What I am trying to do is achieve a Date Range filter for my grid for a single column, while keeping the default GridFilterMode.Row filters for all other columns.


    .Filterable(ftb => ftb.Mode(GridFilterMode.Row))


    I have successfully implemented the Date Range filter by setting the Grid to .Filterable()  and using some additional scripts to customize the fields for the dropdown menu.


          .HtmlAttributes(new { @class = "orderGrid" })
          //.Filterable(ftb => ftb.Mode(GridFilterMode.Row))    // Switches all Columns to Row type filters
          //.Filterable(ftb => ftb.Mode(GridFilterMode.Menu))  // Switches all Columns to Menu type filters
              .Filterable()  // Does the same as line above I assume ? ^
          .Resizable(resize => resize.Columns(true))
          .Columns(columns =>
          columns.Template(c => { }).ClientTemplate("<input class='k-checkbox chkbx' type=\"checkbox\" name=\"cb_#=Id#\" id=\"cb_#=Id#\" /><label class='k-checkbox-label'></label>").Width(40);
          columns.Bound(o => o.OrderNo).ClientTemplate(Html.ActionLink("#=OrderNo#", "OrderDetails", "Order", new { orderId = "#=Id#" }, null).ToHtmlString()).Title("Order #");
          columns.Bound(c => c.DateCreated).Title("Date Placed").Format("{0:MM/dd/yy}").Width(180);
          columns.Bound(c => c.EstimatedTotal).Format("{0:c}").Title("Total Amount").Width(150);
          columns.Bound(c => c.OrderStatus).ClientTemplate("#=GetOrderStatusHtml#").Title("Status");
          columns.Bound(c => c.PONo).Title("Purchase Order #").ClientTemplate("#if(PONo != null) { #PONo# } else { #N/A# }#");
          if (isUserAdmin)
              columns.Bound(c => c.SOFromMAS).Title("Sage Order #");
              columns.Bound(o => o.PropertyName).Title("Property");
              columns.Bound(c => c.IsPropertyRehab).Title("Rehab").Width(100);
              columns.Bound(c => c.WhosInChargeName).Title("Who's in Charge");
          columns.Template(@<text> </text>).Hidden(); //Keep for css coloring of filter bar
                      .ToolBar(tools => tools.Excel())
                      .Excel(excel => excel
                          .FileName(string.Format("My Orders Report - {0:yyyy-MM-dd}.xlsx", DateTime.Now))
                          .ProxyURL(Url.Action("Excel_Export_Save", "Order"))
                      .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                          .Model(model => { model.Id(p => p.Id); })
                          .Read(read => read.Action("OrderViewModels_Read", "Order"))
                      .Events(x => x.DataBinding("resizeKendoGrid"))
                        .Events(e => e.DataBound("onDataBound")) //Callback after data is retrieved
                            .Events(e => e.FilterMenuInit("onFilterMenuInitDateRange"))
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function onFilterMenuInitDateRange(e) {
            if (e.field == "DateCreated") {
                console.log("Condition passed!")
                var beginOperator = e.container.find("[data-role=dropdownlist]:eq(0)").data("kendoDropDownList");
                var endOperator = e.container.find("[data-role=dropdownlist]:eq(2)").data("kendoDropDownList");


    My issue is when I set the Grid to have Menu type filters ,  All the other columns will too!  How can I set one column to use the menu type filter (for Date Ranges) while keeping .Row type filters for the rest of the columns?


    Thank you in advance.

    Hello Ross,

    I am afraid that mixing row with menu type filtering is not available. Nevertheless, there is a feature request for the feature you describe. You can find a link to the request below.

    Furthermore, in the request description you can find how you can add multiple components in the filter with Row filter mode.
