WinForms Controls GanttControl
Reporting XRDesignFieldList


Use the static WindowsFormsSettings.FilterCriteriaDisplayStyle property to specify the default display style of filter criteria for controls in your application (Data Grid, Tree List, Vertical Grid, Pivot Grid and Filter Editors). Individual grid and tree list controls override this setting if you set their FilterCriteriaDisplayStyle property to any value except Default.

The following list demonstrates the available display styles of filter criteria in controls.

  • Visual - Renders filter criteria in an easy-to-read format and uses skin-based colored highlights to differentiate between column names, functions and values. In the Filter Panel, the 'x' button is displayed when you hover over a condition. This button allows users to quickly remove individual conditions from the filter.

  • Text - Renders filter criteria in a text-based format.


You can bind a standalone Filter Control to a data-aware control (Grid, Tree List, etc.) with the SourceControl property (FilterControl.SourceControl, FilterEditorControl.SourceControl). When you change the data-aware control's FilterCriteriaDisplayStyle property at runtime, the standalone Filter Control does not automatically update its appearance to match the new display style. To forcibly update the Filter Control's appearance, call the Filter Control's LayoutChanged method.
