    Hello,
    I have a Telerik MVC Ajax grid. I noticed that in the latest release you handle null values in the Multi check filter. It now shows 'null' in the filter. This is a very technical term and we would rather then word 'Blanks' to appear. Is there anyway I can achieve this?

    Thank you
    Lucy

    Hello, Lucy,

    This was indeed changed in the previous version. The main reason is that if this is not done, there is no option to filter on null values. We can agree that the null value may be misleading for the user and I opened and discussion with the team to check if we can improve this.

    For now, a template can be used to modify the options:

    https://docs.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/api/Kendo.Mvc.UI.Fluent/GridBoundColumnFilterableBuilder#methods-ItemTemplate(System.String)

    https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid/configuration/columns.filterable.itemtemplate

    I hope this is helpful.

    Regards,
    Stefan
