public bool ShowLikeFilters { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true, to show the pattern-matching operators; otherwise, false.


The Is Like and Is Not Like operators allow end users to search for a specified pattern:

  • % — the percent sign replaces zero, one, or multiple characters;
  • _ — the underscore replaces a single character.

If the OptionsColumnFilter.PopupExcelFilterTextFilters property is set to AllFilters, the Excel style pop-up filter menu contains the pattern-matching (Is Like, Is Not Like) and relational (Greater Than, etc.) operators in the Text Filters tab.


The ShowLikeFilters property allows you to show/hide the pattern-matching operators.
