Using SearchPanel and getting search results highlighted is a very usefull feature. However at the moment it is only possible to change the color of the highlight-portion of HighlightTextBlock. It would be nice if I have more formatting options like:
etc. So if I search for "find" I get results like "find me"
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
Our requirement is to navigate through RadGridView table header using keyboard tab navigation.
The header may or may not include checkbox/filter button.
However on mouse focus on table headers , it get highlighted. This feature is currently not possible with tab navigation.
