        Hello Telerik,


    One thing I need to point is I use LinqToSQL, composing a IEnumerable<Something> placed inside a VirtualQueryableCollectionView and finally bound to the grid: ItemsSource="{Binding VirtualCollectionOfSomething}"

    I am looking for a way to search in my gridview data using a TextBox outside of the grid, without having to go to the database a second time.

    Is there a way I can trigger the built-in gridview filter event using the textbox input as a filter parameter to a specific column?


    thank you!

    Hello Jacob,

    Can you please take a look at the Programmatic Filtering topic, as the built-in mechanism for filtering RadGridView is demonstrated in it. Basically, you can build the required IFilterDescriptor based on the Text value of the TextBox and add it to the FilterDescriptors collection of the control.

    Hope this helps.

    All the best,
