     have a RadGrid which has a main data source dsA. I have a foreign key column on this dsA called fColumn having integer values, on which I am getting the relevant text of this fColumn from a second table "tblB". The tblB has two columns (id and text) which the id is corresponding to fColumn.
    I want to have the FilterCheckList values in the grid from this tblB, column named "text" which I did as:

    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="fColumn" FilterCheckListEnableLoadOnDemand="true"
                    HeaderText="HeaderTxt" SortExpression="fColumn" UniqueName="fColumn">        


    and in the code.cs file:

    protected void RadGrid1_FilterCheckListItemsRequested(object sender, GridFilterCheckListItemsRequestedEventArgs e)
                string DataField = (e.Column as IGridDataColumn).GetActiveDataField();
                e.ListBox.DataSource = dsTblB;
                e.ListBox.DataKeyField = "id";
                e.ListBox.DataTextField = "text";
                e.ListBox.DataValueField = "id";


    What I am getting as error in alert when I am clicking on this filter:
    fColumn is neither a DataColumn nor a DataRelation for table DefaultView.

    So how this above scenario can be easily achieved with Telerik controls.

    PS: I don't want to use SQL Joins for filling the Grid in the query.
    Thanks in Advance!
