Hi Khushali,

Disabling the filter functionality at runtime is not currently supported. As a workaround you could prevent the click on the filter icons by covering them with transparent <div> elements.

In this jsFiddle you can see the aforementioned approach in action.

Hi Alexander,

Unfortunately the provided solution works only in case grid is static, columns cannot be resized, or moved. It is possible to break the example simply by resizing jsFiddle previewPane after checking the checkbox.

Maybe there is some better solution now (your answer is quite old already)?

 Thanks,

Hello Oleksandr,

There are two alternative ways to achieve the desired behavior:

1) use setOptions() to re-create the Grid with the appropriate filterable settings.

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid#methods-setOptions
 
http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/persist-state


2) use a custom CSS class applied to the Grid wrapper <div> to hide the filter icons when needed

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/framework/widgets/wrapper-element

.my-custom-grid-class .k-grid-filter
{
   display: none;
}
