    I remember a few releases ago I was able to get an "SQL" where clause from the filter criteria. Has this functionality been moved? I see the save settings option but I don't think my users will understand base64. I would love to be able to use the filter do generate custom reports.

    Hi Michael,

    The RadFilter control exposes query providers for a number of different syntaxes, including SQL. You can use the ApplyExpressions server event to get an expression built using the required syntax:
    protected void RadFilter1_ApplyExpressions(object sender, RadFilterApplyExpressionsEventArgs e)
        RadFilterSqlQueryProvider provider = new RadFilterSqlQueryProvider();

    For more information on building filter expressions you can check out this help article:

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
