Is it possible to use the RadFilter with calculated expressions other than the basic
[field] [compare-op] [value]
?

I'm looking for things such as you'd see in other database expression builders, such as 
[Signature Date] > Today()-60
to see signatures done in the last sixty days, or
[BoltThread] = [NutThread]
to compare two fields.

Those are just two very simple cases, but there's certainly thousands more possibilities.

Hello Joel,

I am afraid that the desired functionality cannot be implemented with the RadFilter control.
Its main functionality is to filter data-bound controls and data-source controls and not to behave as an expression builder which it is not.

Please excuse us for the inconvenience caused.

Kind regards,

Does Telerik have any plans to implement an expression builder?  It seems like the RadFilter is 90% of the way there and that simply adding 1) the ability to compare field to field and 2) the ability to compare dates to dynamic placeholders such as today, current month, previous month, previous X days, etc. would be all that is necessary.

Hello Tom,

As of current, we do not have such feature/component planned for implementation. You could submit a Feature Request through our support system. This way it will be considered by our developement team, and if it is regularly requested - added to the planning for a future release.
