I am facing a strange problem in rad grids. Whenever I type something in filter textbox and filter, it works fine. However if  I type something else after first filter, the same set of data is returned, unless I click no filter.  However i know this is not the case in your demos site.  I do not know if it is my mistake. However if you can advice how to track it down, then that would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Nilanjan,

Indeed this is the expected behavior of the regular grid filtering. You type filter value in the filtering textbox then select a filter function to trigger filtering and RadGrid displays the filtered data. To filter by different filter value you repeat the above steps.

But in case you prefer filtering on [Enter], you could achieve it by:
  • set AutoPostBackOnFilter property of the corresponding column to true (this will trigger postback filter operation for Contains (for string types) and EqualTo (for numeric types) when you type in the filter box and press [Enter] from the keyboard)
  • additionally, you can execute other type of filter action by setting the CurrentFilterFunction property of the corresponding column to the desired filter function

Find more about RadGrid filtering here.

I hope this helps.

All the best,
