    I am trying to add a custom filter option to the filter context menu that appears when you click the filter button above a column in a gridview.  This custom filter option will search for empty string values "" within the column.  I read some other related forum posts that pointed me towards the 'FilterPopupInitialized' event.  However, when I tried to wire up this event handler, I can never seem to hit a breakpoint set on my code inside this method.

    Any thoughts on why I can't seem to get to my breakpoint?  Also, is this the right approach for adding a custom filter option to the gridview filter context menu?

    Hi Matthew,

    Thank you for writing. 

    The FilterPopupInitialized event will fire when the Excel-like filtering is used (clicking the button inside the header cell). The ContextMenuOpenning event will fire when the default filtering is used. 

    I hope this will be useful. Let me know if you have additional questions.
