    The jQuery Grid Checkbox Filter has a search box which can be used to find any entries containing the search string entered (see this demo and type in 'syrup' for example, one result is shown):

    The GridColumnMenuCheckboxFilter also has a search box, however this appears to only return entries matching or starting with the search string entered (see this demo and type in 'syrup', no results are shown):

    Is there any way to change the functionality of the GridColumnMenuCheckboxFilter to match the jQuery implementation?


    Kind regards,

    Hello, David,

    Indeed, currently, the default operator is set to `startswith`.

    We agree that this is something that is useful to be modified. I have logged a task to make a prop that will allow setting the search bar's filter operator:

    Currently, this can be modified by using a custom search bar and filtering the data programmatically:

    This is an example of how it can be done:

    I hope this is helpful.
