    I am using version 2014.2.729.45 of the RadGridView Control. I have used cell style selectors to change the background of the cells in a column to represent different situations. 

    Is there a way to filter a column on a specific cell background color? An example of what I am looking for is in excel. If a column has cells with different colored backgrounds, you can select the color in the filter choices.

    Does the RadGridView filtering have this capability? If not, is there a way I can add this functionality?

    Hello Terry,

    The filtering is a data operation and it will be done based on the DataMemberBinding specified for a column. Alternatively, you can specify a FilterMemberPath so that the column to be filtered on another property of the bound business object. For the purpose you should expose a property of your business object to represent the different colors.
    You can also check our online documentation where the filtering is explained in details.

    Let me know how this works for you.
