I have databound my grid with an IEnumerable<> of objects. One of the properties of this object is an enum type. This works great, and the enum type is displayed as expected in the grid, however filtering this column always fails. I used a GridBoundColumn to display the enum value in the grid.
When I enter a value in the filter box, I get a Telerik.Web.UI.ParseException with the message "Neither of the types 'String' and 'MyEnumType' converts to the other"...
Am I using the wrong column type to display enum values? Is it possible to show a dropdownlist with all possible enum values for filtering instead of a textbox in which the user can enter anything?
