I am creating a kendo grid from an existing html table and I want to include only the simplest possible filtering and sorting options for the user.

 Sorting is working well, but with filtering I -- either using the row-filter mode or the filter drop-down -- I cannot find a way to suppress the operators (and just use a contains operator as the comparison).

All of the documentation and samples that I see that include options for setting the 'showOperators' option to false and specifying the default 'operator' seem to be set at the individual column level as part of the options when creating the grid.

Since my columns come from my table definition -- annotated with data-field, data-sortable, data-filterable -- this is not something that I can do (or want to do).

Is there not some global way of suppressing the filter operators and setting the default operator for all of the columns in the grid?

Hello Christopher,

Changing he default filtering settings globally is not supported out-of-the-box and it will require custom solution. Ideas how to achieve this are discussed in the following blog post.

We will appreciate if you submit your ideas as feature requests at our UserVoice portal - this way the community would be able to evaluate it and we will consider them for future releases. Thank you in advance.
