Hi,

How do i include excel like multi select filter functionality in Radgrid? Same feature is there Silverlight Radgridview but  I can't use silverlight in my application. So if you can provide me with some examples to include multiselect filter functionality in Radgrid similar to Silverlight Radgridview.

Thanks
Shasanka

Hello Shekhar,

Try setting EnableHeaderContextMenu and EnableHeaderContextFilterMenu to True.
aspx:
<telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" EnableHeaderContextFilterMenu="true" EnableHeaderContextMenu="true">

Thanks,
Princy.

Hi,
Thanks for  the reply.
EnableHeaderContextFilterMenu shows filter options in HeaderContext menu but this doesn't show filter values with multiple selections.
Want something similar feature of silverlight RadGridView. http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#GridView/FirstLook
Want only multiple value selection feature for filter.

Thanks
Shekhar

I'd like to bump this very old thread.  I, too, would like the ASP .NET AJAX RadGrid Filter to work like the Silverlight RadGrid Filter with the checkbox list.

Hi Kyle,

Please try the sample code snippet,which depicts a similar scenario.

ASPX:
