GridView: GridViewComboBoxColumn expose a property which will be used by the sort, filter, search as type functionalities

Hi,

I have been working wit the RadGridView for about 6 years now and it works great!

The only thing that still bugs me after all these years is the GridViewComboBoxColumn. The sorting and "Search as you type" features are not working for us. The fact that it uses the DataMemberBinding is something we do not get.

The fact that it is not ordered or searched into the shown value instead of the DataMemberPath is beyond me.

I mean, why would I, as a user, want to search into or sort a value that is not visible to me?

 

Adding a feature like a string property on the GridViewComboBoxColumn that is used for displaying, searching, filtering and sorting would be awesome!

The filter's distinct values work well, but the field filters show the enum value and that's not good.

 

I have attached a sample project to demonstrate the problems with sorting, filtering and searching.

There are also print screens attached to clarify each feature mentioned

Thanks!

Hi Alain,

Thank you for the provided files.

You are right that the GridViewComboBoxColumn have some limitation with searching, filtering, and sorting mechanisms. I can agree that this column can be improved. I have changed the status of the feedback item to Approved. When the development of the feature starts internally, we will change the status to 'In Development'.
