Predefined Filters

The Filtering UI allows end users to create complex filters, but starting from v18.2, you can provide Predefined Filters out of the box.

Specify Predefined Filters

  1. Create a PredefinedFilter and specify its PredefinedFilter.Name and PredefinedFilter.Filter properties.
  2. Add the predefined filter to the PredefinedFilterCollection and specify the ColumnBase.PredefinedFilters property.

The following code sample shows how to specify predefined filters for the MPGCity column:

<dxg:GridControl Name="grid">
  <!-- -->              
  <dxg:GridColumn FieldName="MPGCity">
      <dxg:GridColumn.PredefinedFilters>
          <dxfui:PredefinedFilterCollection>
              <dxfui:PredefinedFilter Filter="?p >= 25" Name="More than 25" />
              <dxfui:PredefinedFilter Filter="?p >= 15 AND ?p &lt; 25" Name="From 15 to 25" />
              <dxfui:PredefinedFilter Filter="?p &lt; 15" Name="Less than 15" />
          </dxfui:PredefinedFilterCollection>
      </dxg:GridColumn.PredefinedFilters>
  </dxg:GridColumn>
</dxg:GridControl>
