    I have a small radwindow pop up for the user select rows, and those rows are returned from the radWindow. Since the window is a pop up and not that big, the filter for a column of the grid gets cut off, and I cannot see the 'contains' or 'no filter'. How can I specify that I want the filtering list to go down below and not up above where it gets cut off?

    Thanks,
    Laura

    Hi Laura,

    As shown in this example, the filtering menu will offer boundary detection to some limit - if the window becomes too narrow, the filtering menu not be able to show all items. Let me know if I am leaving something out.

    I am not having a problem with the width, I am having a problem with the height. So that if the radwindow is small, and there is a grid inside it, the top of the grid is right up at the top of the window, when you click the filter icon, the top few choices (no filter, contains..) get cut off and you can't see them.

    I tried a fix by makeing the filter box just a type in text box by trying to use these to properties CurrentFilterFunction="Contains" and ShowFilterIcon="false", but it is telling me that ShowFilterIcon is not a property. I am using 2008 Q3, and I am assuming that the showfilteringicon is new for 2009 q4? I would hate to have to upgrade just for this. I tried just choosing currentfilterfunction="contains" alone, but it does not filter unless I use the icon.

    Hi Laura,

    Indeed, the behavior which you described is observed. However, it is expected - if there is not sufficient space, the filtering menu will be cut off. Another option which you can consider is a filter template, which would offer much more freedom to cope with this limitation.

    All the best,
