Change the RadFilter search algorithm from DFS to search the “closest" control algorithm
It would be extremely useful if a RadFilterDropDownEditor could expose a DataSource property and a DataBind method to facilitate typical database binding operations. Only allowing the use of a SqlDataSource goes against the concept of separation of duties and forces SQL to be maintained in two places rather than in one Data Layer.
Currently when trying to use datatype of a Nullable Decimal with a RadFilter, when applying the expression an invalid cast exception is thrown due to Nullable Decimals not being support and the fallback DataType of Double being used when using a RadFilterNumericFieldEditor. I would like RadFilterNumericFieldEditor to support DataType of Nullable Decimal.
