            radgrid.MasterTableView.FilterExpression = filterExpression;
            radgrid.MasterTableView.Rebind();
        }
    }
}


The problem I am having is that I am getting an exception:

Failed to load viewstate. The control tree into which viewstate is being loaded must match the control tree that was used to save viewstate during the previous request.

Any suggestion on how to solve this?

Hi Eyup,

could you please also post here the correct solution?

Would be intersting to know which are the correct steps​: in my ​scenario I should have a multiple choice filter based on the autogenerated column's values, to filter the column itself ​(DropDownTree with checkboxes? Simple dropdown with multiple values?)
