I create a custom RadFilterDataFieldEditor. I know if the type is string, the expression will auto add two qutoe such as [Filed] = 'aaaa'. Is there a way to remove qutoe in expression such as [Filed] = aaaa?

Hello,

I am not sure that I understand correctly what your requirement is. If you want to input a string value, why do you use RadFilterDateFieldEditor?

Please elaborate a bit more on your scenario, thus all the people who want to help you will have better understanding of your case and will be able to give you more precise directions.

In fact, I use the RadFilter to setup an expression and will replace with actual value. For example, I have a table with PV Field column and Code Field column. The left side of expression will list all PV Field and right side will list all Code Filed. The result is similar as following:
[PV Field 1] >= '[Code Filed 2]'. When I get the expression, I will replace PV Field 1 and Code Filed 2 with some actual value and then compare it. If I can remove ‘’ for '[Code Filed 2]' , it's more good for user to understand that the [Code Filed 2] is only a token not a value.

Hi,

You could use the following code to achieve your goal:

protected void Page_PreRenderComplete(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if ((RadFilter1.Controls[1] as LiteralControl).Text.Split('>').Length > 3)
    {
        if ((RadFilter1.Controls[1] as LiteralControl).Text.Split('>')[6].Split(new string[] { "</span" }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries).Length > 0)
        {
            string searchedTerm = (RadFilter1.Controls[1] as LiteralControl).Text.Split('>')[6].Split(new string[] { "</span" }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries)[0];
            if (searchedTerm != "''")
            {
                string newTerm = searchedTerm.Split('\'')[1];
                (RadFilter1.Controls[1] as LiteralControl).Text = (RadFilter1.Controls[1] as LiteralControl).Text.Replace(searchedTerm, newTerm);
            }
        }
    }
}

All the best,
