Filter Buttons

Filter buttons are displayed within row headers and can be clicked to activate filter drop-down lists. Such lists allow end-users to specify data filtering conditions.


The table below lists the main properties affecting element appearance.


The VGridOptionsView.HeaderFilterButtonShowMode property allows you to choose whether the filter buttons are displayed as smart tags or regular buttons.

Custom Draw Event

The VGridControlBase.CustomDrawRowHeaderCell event allows you to paint a row header manually.


The VGridOptionsFilter.AllowFilter and VGridOptionsRowFilter.AllowFilter options allow you to disable filtering for the whole control or a particular row.
