    Hi I'm using the RadGridView to display some data to a custom SQL data provider.

    I have to handle the filtering of the grid in an unbound manner, I was able to achieve this using the RadDataFilter together with the RadGridView.

    I would rather like to use the built in filtering controls of the grid for composing the filters than using the RadDataFilter. 

    Using the RadDataFilter.FilterDescripters I could get the  and translate them to our back end filtering contracts.

    With the RadGridView I can also get the RadDataFilter.FilterDescripters and so the translation to our back end contracts,

    but sadly I cannot get the RadGridView to NOT handle the actual filtering of the data, I want to disable the built in filtering engine and filter the data myself using the RadGridView .FilterDescripters.

     

    Is there any way to achieve this, please :)

    Hi,

    You can find one possible approach on how to override the default filter attached.

    Otherwise, you might need to build a custom filtering control in case you want some kind of very custom filtering which is not covered by RadGridView stock filtering functionality. You can also refer to the Custom Filtering Controls documentation. Some detailed information on the Filtering mechanism is also explained in the docs.

    After trying a number of work arounds and inheriting half the Telerik Grid libraries I did not find a solution to this, I switched off the grid allow filtering and is using the DataFilter to filter the data.
