Hello Telerik Team,

I have a column in a DataTable named "Total $ Value". I also have a RadGridView with the "EnableFiltering" property set to "True". I assign my DataTable to the DataSource of the RadGridView. At runtime, when I attempt to set a filter on this column, 
Not getting error bur filter is not working , even unable to click on filter dropdown (just filter image appear but dropdown is not).

Any ideas how I can have a "$" character in a column name and the filtering still works?

Its a requirement to have $ in a column name.

Please help me,

Thanks,
Preeti

Hi Preeti,

I did not manage to reproduce the issue with the supplied information in Q2 2012 (2012.2 608). Could you share with us the schema of your data table and how you are initializing RadGridView control?

Hello Svett ,

I am just simply binding my grid providing datatable as a datasource to radgrid.

and set AllowFilteringByColumn="true"

And facing this issue, Now i am renaming the column "Total $ Value"  to "Total Value" with this its working fine.

Please specify the reason.

Thanks,
Preeti

Hi Velkumar,

Can you verify that you are using RadGrid control for ASP.NET AJAX?
