Auto Filter Row

The automatic filtering row allows data to be filtered on the fly by typing text into that row. When an end-user types text into this filtering row, a filter condition is automatically created based on the entered value and then applied to the focused column. The automatic filtering row is displayed at the top of the Grid View.
