Hi
Is there any way that I can override the default RadGridView Filter behaviour where the 'Contains' option is not presented for numeric fields?
I need the 'Contains' option to appear on a numeric column. I know that I could change the datatype on the table but that's not really an option for me.
I am a licensed user of RadControls for WinForms Q1 2010 SP2.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

Hello,

As far as I'm aware, the integer column type cannot use a contains filter.
I am running the latest version of the controls, but I think you could do something like this.
First, change the column to be a GridViewTextBoxColumn, so that you get the Contains filter that you need. then change the editor element by following this documentation so that you always display a spin editor to ensure that you input only integer values.
Hope that helps, but let me know if you need further help

Hi brendan,

You can achieve that by creating a custom filtering predicate. I have attached a sample project that demonstrates how you can achieve this scenario. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
