Filter Editor

The Filter Editor allows end-users to build filter criteria of any complexity with an unlimited number of filter conditions combined by logical operators.



The table below lists the main properties that affect element appearance.

Look And Feel




End-users can invoke the Filter Editor via the Edit Filter button displayed within the Filter Panel or via the Column Header Context Menu.



Starting with version 18.1, this legacy Filter Editor is replaced with its updated version that features the advanced “Text” tab, where you can type filter expressions manually. This tab now supports syntax highlighting and auto-complete to facilitate the input. To revert data-aware controls back to the legacy Filter Editor version, disable the static WindowsFormsSettings.UseAdvancedFilterEditorControl property.
