Filter Panel

The Filter Panel displays a string representation of the filter criteria applied to the grid. It displays the following elements.

  • Filter Expression

    Column filters are combined by the AND operator in a single filter expression, which is applied to a grid. The filter string is considered to be the WHERE clause of a SQL SELECT statement. To obtain the filter string applied to a grid, use the DataControlBase.FilterString property.

  • Clear Button

    Clears the current filter.

  • Enable Filter

    This check box can be used by an end-user to enable or temporarily disable the current filter. To do this in code, use the DataControlBase.IsFilterEnabled property.
