Hi.. I have grid at the bottom of a form. When a user clicks on the header to filter the fitler menu extends below the form and off the screen. And the user can't select the options.
How I can make the menu open 'up' - instead of down. Or make the menu appear totally on the form?
thanks in advance

Hello Jon,

You need to adjust the FilteringControl by using the following options:

If you have a grid with limited height do you need the full list of options that offers?
1. You may set the following properties of a GridViewDataColumn to False in order to control different options of the FilteringControl: 
       -ShowDistinctFilters-show/hide the top part
       -ShowFieldFilters-show/hide the bottom part 

2. Also you may edit the template of FilteringControl and adjust it in the way you need, decrease the height of the ListBox that contains DistinctValues, change the position of the Close button etc.

3. In order to control whether or not the Filtering PopUp will be "opened up" or "opened down" you need to control the Popup control that it is used internally, this could be a time consuming task. 

Think about the suggestions above and let me know how these works for you. Also you may use the attached project which you can modify and sent it back if you need any additional information.

Hi Jon,

 
You will made the ListBox within FilteringControl's template smaller through setting Height/Width property to a fixed value of the PART_DistinctValuesList. In a similar way you may adjust the rest of its layout in an appropriate manner.

Please find a sample that demonstrates this approach.

Kind regards,

Vanya, I would appreciate it highly if you could just show the template explorer in the screenshot so we would know where exactly this PART_DistinctValuesList is found.
