    I have a grid where a filter gets set through the API automatically, but I want to be able to display what that current filter is, and allow the under to easily remove it.  I'm thinking of using MultiSelect to accomplish this purely from the standpoint of how it looks to the user and could allow them to click on that X to easily remove the filter.  But I'm not sure this is the right or even a workable approach.  I figure before I go to effort to try to implement this and go through testing, that I'd ask the experts here and see what your recommendations may be to accomplish something like this.

    Any input would be most appreciated, thank you!

    Hi Ian,

    Basically such scenario is possible, however it will require custom solution. For example you can use the change event of the multiselect to get the current items, build a filter object and pass it to the grid dataSource filter method
