Object Type Path to AllowFilterModeChanging


A column's filter mode (GridColumn.FilterMode) specifies how the column's values are filtered - by values or display values.

When the AllowFilterModeChanging property is set to True, a dedicated menu item is available in the Column Header Context Menu. It allows an end-user to change the filter mode dynamically at runtime.

The DefaultBoolean.Default value is interpreted as True if a column embeds any lookup editor (A LookUpEditBase class descendant). For other in-place editors, this option is regarded as False.
