case insensitive match filter

I would like to filter a grid with a case insensitive match filter. By default, match is case sensitive (tested in the samples). How do I change this behaviour?

Also, is it possible to hook into the filtering mecanism so that if a user writes "hello world", it will filter on LIKE "*Hello*World*"?

Thanks in advance,

Right... Let's make the non obvious obvious then...

1) I'm using a grid grouping control (I'm in the "Grouping-windows" forum, aren't I? I'm also a registered customer of Essential Studio Enterprise Edition if you look at my profile)
2) I add a dynamic filter bar to the grid grouping control
3) I add a RecordFilter with the operator "match" and some value to filter the grid => it's case SENSITIVE
4) The same behaviour is present in your very own samples

My first question is: how do I make it case INsensitive?

My second question is: how can I hook into the filter mecanism so that if a user selects the LIKE operator and types "Hello World" in the filter cell, the applied Record filter will be LIKE "*Hello*World*" instead.

Hi Julien,

We regret for the delay.

By default, we doesn’t have support for this concern. In data injection, Text between /* and */ is not evaluated by the server. I hope the below link will help you.


Appreciate for the patients.
