I'm using the approach at explained at http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/gridview-filtering-howto-save-and-load-filter-settings.html to save filter (and sort) settings from a RadGridView.
I'm working on a feature where I would like to set up a search using the RadGridView and then be able to use the saved sort/filter settings to query and display results in a listbox instead.
I'm using a VirtualQueryableCollectionView and when I query for data I use the EntityQueryExtensions from Telerik.Windows.Controls.DomainServices to add sort and filtering to the query to Entity Framework.
Is it possible to deserialize the saved filter settings to a FilterDescriptorCollection separeted from RadGridView, so I can use that collection when querying for data?
