When filtering an odata source on an Int64 property, a "L" needs to be appended to the value so that is properly cast to Int64 by WebApi.

Is there a filter configuration that would properly append the "L" to the end of the value in the querystring? I have tried manually appending the "L" to the filter value however this causes it to be passed as a string and that cast fails as well.

For now I can manually build my filter querystring for my prototype but that is not ideal going forward.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need sample code.

Hi John,

As the initial post in this thread is an outdated one, can you give me more details about the product version that you use? 

Here is a Stack overflow thread related to the current issue that discussed a possible solution. Can you try the demonstrates approach and let me know if it works in the scenario of the project you are working on?

Hi Petar,

Thanks for the response. I am using Kendo UI v2017.3.1026.

I tried the solution in the link you posted and it seems to work although it just feels like a hack. I just thought that Telerik would address this directly as it seems like a scenario that should be addressed since the Kendo datasource supports odata filtering. Of course Javascript itself has had no support for Int64 until recently (BigInt) and that is not supported in all browsers.

Sigh....

Hi John,

If you think that the discussed scenario should be and built-in functionality, I would suggest adding a feature request in our Feedback portal. Based on the community interest on such a request, we may consider its implementation.
