Filter Settings

You can prevent end-users from applying or changing filtering at runtime. If a Grid View's GridOptionsCustomization.AllowFilter property is set to false, end-users cannot filter against any column. If this property is set to true, filtering can be disabled for individual columns via the OptionsColumnFilter.AllowFilter option. When filtering by a column is disabled, its filter button is hidden. Note that these properties don't affect filtering via code.

The filter conditions you set for individual columns are combined by the AND operator into a single filter string and this is applied to a bound data source. The filter string can be considered to be the WHERE clause of an SQL SELECT statement. You can access the filter string via the ColumnView.RowFilter property.

For each filter condition, you can specify the text representation of the filter. Filter display texts are combined into a single string and displayed in the filter panel. To access that string, you can use the ColumnView.FilterPanelText property.

The ColumnView.ActiveFilterEnabled property allows the current filter to be temporarily disabled. An end-user can also temporarily disable the filter by unchecking the check box within the filter panel. Checking the check box enables the current filter.
