Hi All,

I saw this post "Google like Filtering" using RadGrid in the below link.

http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/controls/examples/integration/gridandcombo/defaultcs.aspx?product=grid 

It's something like filtering with a text box below the Grid's header..

I need to have 5 columns in my grid..For the first 3 columns alone i should have this filtering option. For the 4th and 5th column i should have a button in place of Filter box(TextBox).. On that button click i need to accomplish certain tasks too..

Any idea on how to do this will help me.

Hello Gowtham,

One suggestion is you can use FilterTemplate for the particular column where you need to show the button. Here is the sample code.
aspx:
<telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false" AllowFilteringByColumn="true">
 <MasterTableView CommandItemDisplay="Top" DataKeyNames="EmployeeID" >
   <Columns>
      <telerik:GridBoundColumn  DataField="FirstName" UniqueName="FirstName" HeaderText="FirstName"></telerik:GridBoundColumn>
      <telerik:GridBoundColumn AllowFiltering="true"  DataField="EmployeeID" HeaderText="EmployeeID" UniqueName="EmployeeID">
        <FilterTemplate>
           <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Filter" onclick="Button1_Click" />
        </FilterTemplate>
      </telerik:GridBoundColumn>
   </Columns>
 </MasterTableView>
</telerik:RadGrid>
C#:
protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{//your logic here
}

Thanks,
Shinu.
