Pop-up Filter Menus


Demo Run the XtraTreeList demo to see the filtering functionality in action.

Expanded How to: Enable/Disable Pop-up Filter Menus

Users can filter data in a tree list using pop-up filter menus. To disable this feature, use the TreeList.OptionsCustomization.AllowFilter property (see TreeListOptionsCustomization.AllowFilter). To override this setting for a particular column, use the TreeListColumn.OptionsFilter.AllowFilter property (see TreeListOptionsColumnFilter.AllowFilter).

To invoke a pop-up filter menu, click a column's Filter Button . In code, use the TreeList.ShowFilterPopup method.

Expanded Styles: Excel and Classic

Pop-up filter menus support two styles.

  • Excel (default) — Microsoft Excel®-inspired menus whose interface changes depending on the data type. See Excel Style for more information.

  • Classic — regular lists of available values. See Classic Style for more information.

To specify the menu style:


See also The Pop-up Filter Menu's Visual Elements topic contains the table of options that affects menu appearance and behavior.

Expanded Modes: Effect of Parent Nodes on Filtering

The TreeList.OptionsFilter.FilterMode property (see TreeListOptionsFilter.FilterMode) specifies whether to show a node that matches the current filter, regardless of whether its parent nodes also match the filter. If parent nodes should not match the filter and should not display the node, you can specify whether these parent nodes are displayed.




The same as:

For version 16.1 and later, the default is Standard. See Version Compatibility: Default Property Values for details.


Nodes that match the applied filter are displayed regardless of whether their parent nodes fit the filter.

Unlike Smart mode, if a node matches the applied filter, all its parent nodes are also displayed, even if they do not fit the filter.


Nodes that match the applied filter are displayed regardless of whether their parent nodes fit the filter.

Unlike in Extended mode, if parent nodes do not match the filter, they are not displayed.


Nodes that match the applied filter are only displayed if their parent nodes also fit the filter.

If a node fits the filter, but any of its parent nodes do not, the node is not displayed.
