    I noticed the online documentation link doesn't work anymore

    When moving the to the new binaries the old code breaks. Somethings are mentioned in the Breaking Changes thread, but somethings are not.

    SortDirection wasn't covered in the thread, I guessed:
    IColumnFilterDescriptor columnDescriptor = (from c in grid.Columns.OfType<GridViewBoundColumnBase>()
                where c.GetDataMemberName() == setting.PropertyName
                select c).FirstOrDefault().ColumnFilterDescriptor;
    columnDescriptor.Column.SortingState = SortListToSettings(setting.SortDirection);

    FieldFilter.Filter1.Member doesn't work anymore, I guessed to remove it:

                                    IColumnFilterDescriptor cfd = matchingColumn.ColumnFilterDescriptor;
                                    if (setting.Filter1 != null && setting.Filter1.Member != null)
                                        cfd.FieldFilter.Filter1.Member = setting.Filter1.Member;
                                        cfd.FieldFilter.Filter1.Operator = setting.Filter1.Operator;
                                        cfd.FieldFilter.Filter1.Value = setting.Filter1.Value;

    also, this doesn't work
     FilterSetting setting = new FilterSetting();
     setting.PropertyName = cfd.Column.DataMemberBinding.Path.Path;

    Are these ok?  Are you going to replace the documentation on how to restore settings?
    Maybe alll of those functions have to be re-written, but I don't have time to do that right now. I was wondering if there are some quick fixes.

    Hello Dan,

    Actually, the current suggested approach is to work with RadPersistenceFramework. Please refer to our demos for a reference.
