I have a couple of questions on filtering and the radgrid.
1. I have a grid with a couple of the columns that aren't shown but the users want to be able to filter off of those rows. Is it possible to use a rad window to let them enter their filter criteria in textboxes and pass that to the radgrid when it closes or is there a better way to do this? Is there an example or demo I can look at for this?

2. I have another radgrid that the users want a drop down to be able to select multiple values to filter off of in a column. Can I use the radcombobox to do this or is there a better way? Is there an example or demo I can look at for this?

With both of these grids I use a webservice to return data and then put the data into a datatable and then bind a dataview of that datatable to the grid.

Thank you very much for your help.
Chris

Hello Chris,

Straight to your questions:
1. Please take a look at the RadFilter in RadWindow demo showing how the desired functionality can be implemented.
2. I recommend that you the Filter template functionality of the RadGrid with a embedded CheckBox inside a RadComboBox template. You can see a demo for dropdown filter for GridBoundColumn here.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to have something that was a little more clean and easy to use then the user having to open up a window and click an add expression button to filter off of a column. I don't need all of the functinality of the filter to add complex expressions. I was really hoping to be able to just put an input box in a rad window and let the user type it in or better yet have a drop down with the different values in it that the user could select one and pass that value back to the grid to filter off of that.
Is that Possible?
Thank you.

Hello Chris,

I have followed your scenario and prepared a sample project for you demonstrating how the desired functionality can be implemented. You can find it attached to this post.

Please, take a look at it and let me know whether it helps.
