Hi All,

My code creates a kendo grid.

When the filterable option is set to true, I see the built-in filter icon on the grid column header and that works fine.

If I set both the filterable:true and columnMenu:true, the filter icon disappears and I see only an icon for the column menu.

I found in the Kendo documentation the below.

When the columnMenu configuration is set to true, the Grid fires the columnMenuInit and columnMenuOpen events instead of filterMenuInit and filterMenuOpen.

Is there a way to have both the filter menu and column menu visible as shown below? Or at least some way when the user clicks on the filter icon to open the filter window? I want the user to be able to filter with one click, instead of clicking on the column menu and then clicking "Filter" to launch the filter screen.

Thank you in advance for any help!

Hello, Nick,

Currently the requirement is not supported. When the column menu is enabled, the filterMenu is placed in it, so there is no approach to open it without opening the column menu first. If opening the filter menu dynamically when you open the columnMenu would be acceptable to you, please refer to this Dojo example.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Martin,

I appreciate your feedback.

It will be a user experience downgrade for us to ask the users to go 2 levels down in the menu to find the filter, while they currently access the filter screen directly from the filter icon.

Our decision to enable the column menu has been based on the logic of using the extra features included in that menu.

Is there at least some way to re-order the column menu and show the filter first?

Thank you in advance,

Nick

Hello, Nick,

This dojo example will rearrange the filter item first if you are using a modern type columMenu. Let me know if it would work for you.

Martin,

Thank you for your suggestion.

Unfortunately, it didn't work for us as we are using version 2015.3.1111 of Kendo. We will consider upgrading to a version that supports this property.

Hi Martin,

I found this https://www.telerik.com/forums/changing-template-of-columnmenu and it worked for me to reorder the columnmenu!

Thanks,

Nick
