Selecting the (Custom) item within the filter dropdown invokes the MS Excel style filter dialog that enables end-users to specify complex filter conditions. By default, the dialog allows you to compare a column’s values with the specified constant values. If the UseNewCustomFilterDialog option is enabled, the custom filter dialog will allow you to compare a column’s values with another column’s values.

Note: you can provide your own custom filter dialog. Handle the ColumnView.CustomFilterDialog event for this purpose.
