    We are using RadGrids with Microsoft's Dynamic Data scaffolding.

    In testing these grids with the new Radfilter control, I found that the fileter displays the underlying database attribute names intsead of the column header labels assigned to the grid columns (GridColumn.HeaderText). This creates and issue for our users as they cannot easily detrmine the column the wish to filter on. Also, it appears that the column type is derived from the underlying database attribute as well.

    For example- we create a virtual attribute based on a concatentation of a numeric id and a string label - based on a joined table and using a foreign key (routefk in master table is linked to routes table, with route id and routelabel concatenated and displayed.) The radfilter displays the column as "routefk" and expects the user to enter a number.

    Is there any way we can force the filter to use the column labels and types instead of the underlying data labels and data types.

    Hello Robert,

    I am afraid that currently the display names for fields are retrieved from DataField property of RadGrid columns and this cannot be modified. However we are working on improvements regarding giving the user option  for modifying the display value for all the fields/filter functions and group operations.
