Object Type Path to AllowFilter


In Layout Views, end-users can filter data using filter drop-down lists (that can be invoked via field filter buttons) and the Edit Filter button within the Filter Panel. If the AllowFilter option is set to false, filter buttons for all fields and the Edit Filter button are hidden, so end-users are no longer able to filter data. However, data can still be filtered in code.

To prevent specific fields from being filtered via filter drop-down lists, use the corresponding column object’s OptionsColumnFilter.AllowFilter option.
