Hi

I'm using the filtering option for the first time on one of my columns in my rad grid. But I notice that when I type some text it is case sensitive when doing the search.

For example if some of the strings in the column contain the word Africa, I have to search for Africa I cannot search for africa.

Is there a way to turn off the case sensitivity??

thanks

Hello Ian,

How the grid is bound in your case? NeedDataSource or DataSourceID?  Please provide more info.

I'm using the NeedDataSource event to retrieve the data array as and when required.

Hi Ian,

Please set RadGrid1.GroupingSettings.CaseSensitive to false and let me know about the result.

There is no effect - filtering remains case sensitive. The collection I assign to the data source is a List of objects.

Hello Greg,

Please try setting EnableLinqExpressions to false if you are using 3.5 as target platform. This should resolve the issue. 

Kind regards,

Hello Michael,

Can you please verify that you are using the latest release 2008.3.1314 of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX in your project when applying the suggested solutions? This should be sufficient to address the issue in question.

Hi Fernando,

Generally, this requirement is not supported. Nevertheless, you can use the ItemCommand event handler provided by RadGrid to change the letters in the filter value:
http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/grid/functionality/filtering/how-to/operate-with-the-filterexpression-manually

Hope this helps.
