I am able to add a custom function no problem, however; doing so seems to remove all the default functions (see screenshot). Any ideas on how to add a custom function and leave the default functions as well?

Telerik.Data.Expressions.ExpressionContext.Context = new MyExpressionContext();
Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadExpressionEditorForm.ExpressionItemsList.Add(
    new Telerik.Data.Expressions.ExpressionItem
{
    Name = "MarketDate (Endur)",
    Value = "MarketDate()",
    Syntax = "MarketDate()",
    Type = Telerik.Data.Expressions.ExpressionItemType.OtherFunc,
    Description = "Returns the market date as it appears in the market manager."
});

Using the LoadFromXml function as described in the help has the same results.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for writing.

By default if you add custom item the default ones are not added. To load them you should call the LoadFromXML method with no parameter:
RadExpressionEditorForm.ExpressionItemsList.LoadFromXML();
RadExpressionEditorForm.ExpressionItemsList.Add(item);

Please let me know if there is something else I can help you with.
