Hi all,

I'm using the filter for my Grid. Everything's good.
But I'm not happy with the Filter Textbox which makes my Grid wider.
Do you know how to make it smaller?

Thanks!

Andy.

Hello Andy,

You can access the filter TextBox from code behind and can change its width from there.

C#:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
   {
      if (e.Item is GridFilteringItem)
       {
           GridFilteringItem filterItem = (GridFilteringItem)e.Item;
           TextBox txt = (TextBox)filterItem["ColumnUniqueName"].Controls[0]; // accessing filter textbox
           txt.Width = System.Web.UI.WebControls.Unit.Pixel(20);
       }
   }

Thanks,
Princy.

Thanks Princy!

I also find the way to edit from the aspx by using "FilterCOntrolWidth" and now you gave me another way in code. So cool!

Glad to receive a help from you!

Andy.
