    I have a grid that contains this column (simplified for clarity):

    columns.Bound(c => c.Status)
            f => f.Extra(false).Multi(true).CheckAll(true).BindTo
                        new { Status = "New" },
                        new { Status = "Started" },
                        new { Status = "Completed" }


    I want both "New" and "Started" to be checked by default when the page is first displayed.

    In the DataSource, I have this code:

            f => f
            .Add(x => x.Status).IsEqualTo("New")


    However, I cannot figure out how to add a second value, "Started", so that both are checked by default. How can I do this?

    Hello Sam,

    In order to add multiple options when filtering by one field you can use the configuration below:

    .Filter(f => f.Add(x => x.Status).IsEqualTo("New").Or().IsEqualTo("Started"))

    On a side note, if you would like to specify a more complex filter that includes multiple fields you can define an object and pass the filter configuration:

    .Filter(f=> {
            f.Add(x => x.ShipName).Contains("Sup");
            f.Add(x => x.Freight).IsGreaterThan(100);
