Filter Different Data Types

The DataFilter control provides many types of filters, including bool, range, date range, checklist, calendar, and custom filters. These filters can be generated automatically by the control, according to the data. Filters can also be added programmatically. Filter criteria can also be serialized deserialized to xml to easily save and load filter expressions as needed.

Customize the Filter UI

The accordion-based filtering UI can be attached to any control sharing a datasource or plugged into an info screen, and the appearance is highly customizable. The DataFilter control provides dedicated class for each of its element which makes it easier to customize the appearance of the control and its elements. Provide additional information about the filters in a custom tooltip.

Filter any Data-Aware Control

The DataFilter control can be easily paired up with any data-aware control like data grids, lists, treeviews, charts or maps. It also works with standard out-of-the-box Microsoft controls.

Show Filter Summaries

The DataFilter control allows you to configure and display aggregate summaries for each filter. This feature makes it easier for you to analyze the count, sum, maximum, and minimum values of the filter items.

Visually Build Expressions with FilterEditor

The additional FilterEditor component works with the DataFilter and enables the end-user to build complex, category-based and/or filter expressions quickly. The control can be bound to a data source, and it will automatically provide visual options to create expressions based on available fields.
