Hello,

I have a similar question to the one posted here:

http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/silverlight/gridview/gridviewhyperlinkcolumn-and-filtering.aspx

Basically, I have a GridViewHyperlinkColumn that needs to be filtered via its friendly name, rather than its URL (i.e. the values retrieved by its ContentBinding rather than its DataMemberBinding).

Writing a custom filter control from scratch is not feasible since the customer wants all the advanced functionality of the built-in default string filter, as well as the same look and feel, and doing this all from the ground up seems a bit like reinventing the wheel just to accomodate one small change.

Can someone give me a more detailed approach on how it would be possible to swap the URL with the friendly name in the filter? Creating an IValueConverter to convert the URL back and forth probably wouldn't work either as the URL does not contain the friendly name of the link.

Please help!

Thanks,

Brian

Hi Brian,

I am afraid this is not possible with GridViewHyperLinkColumn .
The only workaround I can think of is to use a regular GridViewDataColumn bound to the property you need to be filtered.  This column can still be customized to display a hyperlink as content using the CellTemplateProperty.
