public bool ShowOperandTypeIcon { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true, to allow end-users to swap the second operand’s type; otherwise, false.


If the ShowOperandTypeIcon property is set to true, the Filter Control displays an additional icon (image). It allows users to switch the second operand’s type between the Value box and Field list.

  • Value box - Allows a user to type a value or select a value from a dropdown value list.
  • Field list - Displays a dropdown list of available fields. This mode allows users to compare the first operand (field) with values of another field.


When the first operand is a date-time field, the Field list also displays the Date and time constants sub-menu with a set of predefined date constants (This year, Today, etc.). Users can select a date-time constant to check if the first operand falls into a specific date range. The FilterEditorControl.ShowFunctions property specifies the availability of these date-time constants.

Users can also switch the second operand’s type with the CTRL+Q shortcut.
