    I am using Farpoint Version 5.0.3514.2008.  I want to apply filter on data rows. I had already derived a class from


    Want to apply some filtering on page load itself.Don't want to show the filter list in column header.

    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns[1].AllowAutoFilter = true
    My filter expression can be based on multiple columns. i.e  I have three columns in grid Name,Age,Dept   then my expression could be "name != '' and Age>10"

    Some thing like this

    After applying filtering, you need to set ShowFilterIndicator property of the RowFilter to false in order to hide filter list in column header.
                fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns[3].AllowAutoFilter = true;
                fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.AutoFilterColumn(3, "14.00", 3);
                fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.RowFilter.ShowFilterIndicator = false;
    Hope it helps.

    just like "Not Equal To 14" or <>14.  what will be the syntax.

    You need to create a custom filter  and use that in code. Code for the same is given below:-

            FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 1).Value = 30
            FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(1, 1).Value = 15
            FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(2, 1).Value = 100
            Dim customfilter As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.CustomFilterItem(New FarPoint.Win.Spread.FilterCondition(FarPoint.Win.Spread.CustomFilterOperatorType.NotEqual, 100), Nothing, True)
            Dim rowFilter As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.HideRowFilter(FpSpread1.ActiveSheet)
            Dim fd As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.FilterColumnDefinition(1, FarPoint.Win.Spread.FilterListBehavior.Custom)
            FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.RowFilter = rowFilter
            FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.AutoFilterColumn(1, customfilter.DisplayName, 0)


    Else create a completely custom filter as shown in attached sample. 

    Hope it helps.
