    Hi All,

    I have an item template command used to filter all columns once it is clicked. what i want to do is to allow the user to click [Enter] key then the filtering event occurs (Like clicking on the item template command by mouse click), how this can be doable?
    Please find the attached image to see how the grid looks like.
    I dont want to set property Autopostbackonfilter to true for each column because i'm filtering all the columns at single command item click.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Tayseer,

    You can manually attach client-side onclick event handler to the filter textboxes.
    if (e.Item is GridFilteringItem)
        foreach (GridColumn column in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.AutoGeneratedColumns)
            Control ctrl = (e.Item as GridFilteringItem)[column.UniqueName].Controls[0];
            if (ctrl is TextBox)
                (ctrl as TextBox).Attributes["onkeydown"] = "keyDownEventHandler(this,event)";

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function keyDownEventHandler(sender,arg)
            arg = arg || window.event;
            if (arg.keyCode == 13)
                $telerik.findElement(document, "myFilterButton").click();
