I have a grid and I'm trying to add some date range filtering to.  The date range filter is on a GridDateTimeColumn, however I just need to filter on Date.  I enabled Range Filtering on the column, but the filter control didn't play nice with the grid, it extendes the width of the DateTimeColumn so the other columns are almost too small.  I then implemented a FilterTemplate with two Telerik DatePicker controls (one on top of the other) as per this demo and that seemed to work.  However, it broke other filtering that I had on the grid. 

Whenever I use any other filter, the date range filter is ignored. 

Example workflow:

  1. Enter From Date and To Date - note the records in the grid
  2. Filter on any other column - note the date range is ignored

Here is my markup

How can I get the date filter preserved when other columns are filtered?

Hi Mike,

Please use the built-in range filtering of the RadGrid. If you want to ignore the time, you can set the EnableTimeIndependentFiltering property to false. And if you want to handle the width, you can show the pickers on two rows:
http://www.telerik.com/forums/basic-filtering-datetime-range#J6au2nck4EKUQCxcC-8u9g

Hope this helps. If you insist on using a template, you can check the OrderDate from the second grid in this live sample:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/functionality/filtering/filter-templates/defaultcs.aspx

Thanks for the update, seems to be working pretty good.  However, there is still another issue.  I generally like to highlight "today" on all my date pickers to give the user a better experience.  I am not able get that to work now for some reason.

Here is my column in my RadGrid

<telerik:GridDateTimeColumn DataField="inspection_datetime" HeaderText="Inspection Date" EnableTimeIndependentFiltering="False"
    PickerType="DatePicker" DataFormatString="{0:yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm tt}" UniqueName="InspectionDate" EnableRangeFiltering="True">
    <ItemStyle Width="7%" VerticalAlign="Top" HorizontalAlign="Left"></ItemStyle>
    <HeaderStyle Width="7%"></HeaderStyle>
</telerik:GridDateTimeColumn>
 

Here is my code-behind in the ItemDataBound Event:

 

var dtFilter = filtering["InspectionDate"];
if (dtFilter != null)
{
    var fromLabel = dtFilter.Controls[0] as LiteralControl;
    var fromDate = dtFilter.Controls[1] as RadDatePicker;
    var toLabel = dtFilter.Controls[3] as LiteralControl;
    var toDate = dtFilter.Controls[4] as RadDatePicker;
    if (fromLabel != null)
    {
        fromLabel.Text = string.Empty;
    }
    if (fromDate != null)
    {
        fromDate.DateInput.DisplayDateFormat = "yyyy-MM-dd";
        fromDate.DateInput.DateFormat = "yyyy-MM-dd";
        fromDate.DateInput.EmptyMessage = "From Date";
        var day = new RadCalendarDay {Repeatable = RecurringEvents.Today};
        day.ItemStyle.BackColor = Color.LightGray;
        day.ItemStyle.Font.Bold = true;
        day.ItemStyle.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Solid;
        day.ItemStyle.BorderColor = Color.Black;
        day.ItemStyle.BorderWidth = new Unit(1);
        fromDate.Calendar.SpecialDays.Add(day);
    }
    if (toLabel != null)
    {
        toLabel.Text = "<br/>";
    }
    if (toDate != null)
    {
        toDate.DateInput.DisplayDateFormat = "yyyy-MM-dd";
        toDate.DateInput.DateFormat = "yyyy-MM-dd";
        toDate.DateInput.EmptyMessage = "To Date";
        var day = new RadCalendarDay {Repeatable = RecurringEvents.Today};
        day.ItemStyle.BackColor = Color.LightGray;
        day.ItemStyle.Font.Bold = true;
        day.ItemStyle.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Solid;
        day.ItemStyle.BorderColor = Color.Black;
        day.ItemStyle.BorderWidth = new Unit(1);
        toDate.Calendar.SpecialDays.Add(day);
    }
}

 

How can I get "today" highlighted on the calendar controls?

Hello Mike,

Your approach is correct. But the pickers in the grid use a SharedCalendar, so just replace the Calendar part:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Item is GridFilteringItem)
    {
        GridFilteringItem item = (GridFilteringItem)e.Item;
        TableCell cell = item["OrderDate"];
        RadDatePicker fromPicker = cell.Controls[1] as RadDatePicker;
 
        RadCalendarDay day = new RadCalendarDay();
        day.Repeatable = Telerik.Web.UI.Calendar.RecurringEvents.Today;
        day.ItemStyle.CssClass = "rcToday";
        fromPicker.SharedCalendar.SpecialDays.Add(day);
    }
}

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Eyup

Thanks!  I wasn't aware it was the SharedCalendar control instead of the Calendar control.
