I have a grid with a template column that contains values from two datafields.
How do I get the filtering to work on this column?

<telerik:GridTemplateColumn UniqueName="Name" HeaderText="Name" >
 <ItemTemplate>
   <asp:Label ID="lblFirstName" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("FirstName") %>'></asp:Label
   <asp:Label ID="lblLastName" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("LastName") %>'></asp:Label>
 </ItemTemplate>
</telerik:GridTemplateColumn>

Hi Andrew,

For a GridTemplateColumn,we have a property AllowFiltering,this has to be true,and a DataField property is required to filter the items for that column.If you want to filter by FirstName,give DataField="FirstName" else DataField="LastName".
Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Princy

But how do make the filter operate using the values of both FirstName and LastName?  Can you define it like, DataField="FirstName, LastName" or is it more complicated than that?  I'm currently using version 2010.2.929.20 of Telerik.Web.UI.dll.  I know I ought to upgrade, but that's not possible at the moment.

Hi Tom Lynch,

I'm afraid currently RadGrid doesn't support passing multiple DataFields for filtering. You can have only either the filter to be done using FirstName or LastName according to the DataField set.

Hello,

Is it still impossible to filter on two or more datafields in one template column ?

Than you

Hi Vasssek,

Yes, this depends on the DataField property of the column, which can be set to only to a single database. Nevertheless, you can use a custom solution to create a new type of column as demonstrated in the attached web site sample and handle its filter expression manually.

Hello,

 

thank you for your example. I solved my issue on SQL side, but I really appreciate it because of interesting custom databound column class. Maybe, I wil use something like this in my next project :-).

Hi Madel,

 

For filtering it really does not matter since you are using custom filtering logic to achieve this. Since the column supports only 1 DataField at a time, you can set it to be the one which you prefer the Sorting to happen for example.

Hello Eyup, 

The sample code you have provided (RadGridGilterApostropheInsensitive.zip) filters on a single datafield property. Could you please provide a sample code for filtering a grid template column wihch has a combination of multiple datafield properties as in the question asked above.

Hello ,

 

In this case you can manipulate the FilterExpression of the MasterTableView and join the filter clause with "OR" statements instead of "AND" as demonstrated in the attached sample.
