public event FilterPopupExcelEventHandler ShowFilterPopupExcel

Event Data

The ShowFilterPopupExcel event's data class is DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.FilterPopupExcelEventArgs.


The ShowFilterPopupExcel event allows you to hide specific predefined conditions from the ‘Filters’ tab of the Excel-style Filter Dropdown. For instance, by default, the ‘Filters’ tab contains the ‘Is Blank’ and ‘Is Not Blank’ filter conditions. See the figure below.


The following code illustrates how to hide these conditions from the ‘Filters’ tab.

private void vGridControl1_ShowFilterPopupExcel(object sender, DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.FilterPopupExcelEventArgs e) {
    e.ShowBlanks = false;

See the result below.


Instead of handling the ShowFilterPopupExcel event, you can also use related static properties accessible through the DevExpress.Utils.Filtering.ExcelFilterOptions.Default static (Shared in VB) field. By doing so, you can hide specific filtering conditions for all Excel-inspired filter dropdowns for all controls in the application.

ExcelFilterOptions.Default.ShowNulls = false;
