When using the grid is there a way to use the built-in header filter controls with a custom select list?   I have a rates table with a CardTypeId column that relates to a CardTypes table.  When in edit mode I have an Editor Template that creates a CardTypes select list for the column containing the CardTypeId.  I’d like to use a similar select list in the header of the grid as a filter.  Are there any options for this?

 

Thanks,

Brad

Hi Brad Sumner,

No, currently this is not supported. We will see if this gets requested often and log it for implementation.

Hi,
related to this.. Is there the possibility to limit the number of current options for filtering columns? For example, I would like to allow users filtering by "Is less than" and "Is greater than" only, and all the rest of options may not appear. Is it possible?

Thanks

Did you ever get this figured out?

I'm also looking for a way of limiting the number of options for filtering in a grid. For instance, when filtering a text column, all I want is "No Filter" (including the space!), "Starts With..." (again, including the space!) and "Contains...".

While developers and power users understand all the different functions for filtering (or at least they ought to!) regular users of any system that gets developed my never use options such as "NotIsEmpty" and "NotIsNull" etc

Also the names of these filters should be written in readable English and not have the words crash into each other.

Perhaps the filters could be specifiec for each column or column data type, or the option to enable all or specific filters for a given column could be added?
