Available values:

Name Description

ExcelSmart starting with v19.2.

In previous versions, DateSmart for date-time columns, and List for other columns.


A regular list of items (one item at a time can be selected).


A checked list. Multiple items can be selected/checked simultaneously.


A drop-down filter is represented by a custom template assigned to the ColumnBase.CustomColumnFilterPopupTemplate property.


This mode is equivalent to DateSmart regarding the appearance of the drop-down filter. The drop-down filter displays all the available check boxes, even if there is no data that falls into a corresponding date range.


This mode is equivalent to DateSmart, but with a different set of filters: Today, This week, This month, Next month, etc.

  • Beyond - Dates that belong to the month in three months time and beyond.
  • Earlier - Dates that belong to the month seven months ago and earlier.

A built-in calendar plus check boxes to select common non-intersecting date intervals.

The available date ranges for the DateSmart and Date modes:

  • Beyond this year - Dates that follow the current year.
  • Later this year - Dates of the current year starting from the following month.
  • Later this month - Dates of the current month that follow the next week.
  • Next week - Dates that belong to the following week.
  • Later this week - Dates of the current week starting from the day after tomorrow.
  • Tomorrow - Tomorrow.
  • Today - Today.
  • Yesterday - Yesterday.
  • Earlier this week - Dates of the current week that are prior to yesterday.
  • Last week - Dates of the previous week.
  • Earlier this year - Dates of the current year that are prior to the current month.
  • Prior to this year - Dates that are prior to the current year.

If there is no underlying data that would fall into a specific date range, the corresponding check box is hidden. If all values in the date-time column are set to null, all check boxes are visible.


A date-time drop-down filter without predefined values.


An Excel-style Drop-down Filter (previous).
