Remarks

The header filter allows users to filter column data. When a user clicks on the filter button, the tree list displays a filter dropdown. The BeforeHeaderFilterFillItems event fires before the filter dropdown is shown and default filter items are created. The event allows you to create custom filter items.

Set the Handled property to true to prevent the HeaderFilterFillItems event from being raised. Otherwise, the event clears the item collection before filling it with default items.

Use the HeaderFilterFillItems event to add custom items to the default items.
