    Hi, for a filterable grid column, I would like to set the filter type to "contains" and hide the filter icon.  Is this possible?  Below is column I am working with.

    This was easily achievable in Telerik AJAX grid but I have trouble navigating documentation for Kendo.  It took me a while to dig through forum posts to find how to set the filter control width.

    columns.Bound(m => m.PatientName).Title("Patient Name").Width(170).Filterable(f => f.Cell(c => c.InputWidth(130)));

    Hello Bob,

    In order to achieve the desired functionality, you will need to set the Operator to "contains" and set ShowOperators to false. Similar to the following:

    .Filterable(ftb => ftb.Cell(cell => cell.Operator("contains").ShowOperators(false)))

    Similar setup is demonstrated in this online demo.
