    I have a RadGrid with Filters.  The user can browse to another page (details page) from the page with the RadGrid.  When the user returns I restore the filters to their state when the user browsed away.  This is done via Session data.

    The search criteria is restored along with the filter values.  The data is read from the datbase and all is well except that the FILTERs were not honored.In other words, all records are displayed that meet the search criteria, but the filters are not applied.

    I think I need to cause a filter event to fire, as if the user had clicked the filter ICON.  How do I cause this to happen?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hello Andy,

    You can achieve this by checking for CommandName in ItemCommand event.
    protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridCommandEventArgs e)
     if (e.CommandName == RadGrid.FilterCommandName)
         //your code here

    Yo uhave not answered his queston.,

    he doesnt want to detect the event.

    He want to @cause@/ fire  the event.

    I also want to have a button, that clears the filters ,THEN redispay the page.on the client..

    I can clear the filters but page remains the same..

    As usual with telerik something so simple seems so hard..

    Hello Trevor,

    For clearing the filters you will need to traverse through each column, set the CurrentFilterValue to an empty string and rebind the grid.

    An example of such implementation could be found for the second RadGrid in the following online demo:
    Additionally, you could examine the following forum thread, where some examples are also available:
    Hope this helps.
