Expanded Invoke the Filter Editor

End users can invoke the Filter Editor in the following ways:

  • Right-click anywhere in the field header area and select Show Filter:

  • Click the Edit Filter button ( ) in the Filter Panel:

To invoke the Filter Editor in code, call the PivotGridControl.ShowPrefilter method.
