                        objFilter.Operator = Telerik.Reporting.FilterOperator.Like;
                        objFilter.Value = string.Format("%{0}%", FieldValue);
                        break;
                    case ("StartWith"):
                        objFilter.Operator = Telerik.Reporting.FilterOperator.Like;

                        break;
                    case ("EqualTo"):

Hi Mohammed,

The code looks logically correct and it should be working. From the snippet that you have posted there isn't information if you are setting the Expression of the filter. Additionally check the values of the FieldValue variable. You can try to serialize the report definition and see what are the final filters that are created. This might give you a clue on what's wrong.

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q2 2013? You can get them from your account.
