    I have a grid with client template that holds two values from datasource. Is it possible to filter this two fileds at once using one filter menu (e.g adding secondary filter on the fly when bounded column is filtered)?

    Hello Tomasz,

    I could suggest applying a custom filter in columns.filterable.ui handler where the desired column fields can be included in the filter of the current one. For example:

    columns.Bound(e => e.City)
                    .ClientTemplate("#=FirstName# #=LastName#")
                    .Filterable(filterable => filterable.UI("nameFilter"))
    function nameFilter(element) {
              var textbox = element.kendoTextBox({
                change: function(e) {
                  var value = e.sender.value();
                  var dataSource = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid").dataSource;
                  var filter = { logic: "or", filters: [] };
                  filter.filters.push({ field: "FirstName", operator: "eq", value: value }, { field: "LastName", operator: "eq", value: value });
                  if (value) {
                  else {

    Please find a runnable demo demonstrating the above in the following link:
