I love the facility of filtering directly in the RadGrid. I've been playing around with it today and I've implemented the Google Suggest in a RadComboBox and it works very well, however I think I could achieve a similar end result in an easier way.

I would like just a text box which, on pressing enter, would perform a certain filter, most often 'contains'. I don't need the filter button, or perhaps I would like to replace it with a 'submit' style button. I think my users would just be confused by the filter drop down and I would rather choose a filter to be most appropriate for each column.

I know I can implement it with a custom grid colum but to save me a little time do you guys have any (vb if poss) examples to hand which already do this?

Hi Rick,

Refer the following help article which explains how to achieve filtering on pressing the enter key.
Search on key press/button click

You can also refer the following link to get details on changing the default filter image.

Thank you for the links, Shinu

What I meant was - Is there any way I could make the filter button act as a 'submit search' button based on a predefined filter, rather than bringing up the filter popup?

Its the filter popup itself that I'm trying to hide.
