DxGrid.FilterBy(String, GridFilterRowOperatorType, Object) Method

Filters grid data by the specified column value.

Namespace: DevExpress.Blazor

Assembly: DevExpress.Blazor.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Blazor


public void FilterBy(
    string columnFieldName,
    GridFilterRowOperatorType operatorType,
    object value


Name Type Description
columnFieldName String

Specifies the name of the data source field that supplies data for the processed column. If the component does not contain the column that corresponds to the specified data field, an exception occurs.

operatorType GridFilterRowOperatorType

An enumeration value that specifies the column’s comparison operator.

value Object

Specifies a filter value.


The FilterBy method allows you to filter grid data by an individual column’s value. The filter row displays the specified filter value in the corresponding column’s editor. The method call replaces an existing filter value (if any) for the column.

The Grid filters rows by cell values. Set the FilterMode property to DisplayText to filter grid rows by display text.

You can use the column’s FilterRowValue and FilterRowOperatorType properties to specify the initial value in a column’s filter row editor.

The highlighted code block adds two buttons that filter grid data by the corresponding column’s values.

Blazor Grid Filter In Code

You can also use the FilterBy method to clear the filter condition in code. To do this, pass null to the method’s value parameter.

<DxButton Click="@(() => MyGrid.FilterBy("ProductName", GridFilterRowOperatorType.Contains, null))">Clear the "Product Name" Filter Condition</DxButton>

To clear all filter conditions in code, call the ClearFilter() method.
