FlexGrid for WinForms
Customizing the Filtering UI
Show AllShow All

We believe the default filtering behavior and UI will address the vast majority of scenarios that involve column filtering. However, you can use the column filter classes independently, implementing your own custom user interface.

To implement the iTunes-style search, we start with a text box that contains the text that will be used as a filter parameter. We also define a timer that will apply the filter a few milliseconds after the users stops typing into the text box:

Now that the timer is configured, all we need to do is create and apply the filter when the timer ticks:
