Hi

We are implemting grid filtering by giving filter expression in Need_DataSource event by setting following property -

Grid.MasterTableView.FilterExpression

which is set to something like the following

DataSourceProperty.ToString().ToUpper().StartsWith("Hi")  where DataSourceProperty is a property of object, collection of which is set as Data Source to the grid just after setting filter expressio.

Now my problem is that we wnat to give a user option to put % in the filter values and the filter should work like "Like" opertor in Oracle. So the input may be "punit%was%" .

Is it possible to do it?
 
We dont have filtre menu on grid but just filter.

Thanks

Currently I am setting filter expression  = ProductName.ToString().ToUpper().StartsWith("ABC")
I am not setting any column's CurrentFilterFunction/ CurrentFilterValue property etc.

and it is working fine.

When I changed it for like operator as given above to

 

grid.MasterTableView.FilterExpression = "([ProductName] LIKE '%2001%') ";


it is throwing exception "ParseException Expression Expected".

Hi,

Try turning  off the grid LINQ expressions (EnableLinqExpressions=false)  .
 Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Thanks this has certainly stopped the exception from coming but now the filtering is not happening.
