How to check a filter option combobox in Filter dropdown in GridDataControl from code behind

I use GridDataControl (ShowFilters = "True" and AllowFilter = "True" for all VisibleColumns).

I'd like to check an option in Filter dropdown for one of the columns in code behind. Is there a way to do this? The reason is that I want to have my GridDataControl initially filtered.

I tried this line of code:

this.myGrid.VisibleColumns[0].Filters.Add(new FilterPredicate() { FilterType = FilterType.Equals, FilterValue = "ValueA" });

It filters the grid, but unfortunately it also clears all other options from the filter dropdown and a user cannot use it.

Is there a way to filter the data properly from code behind?

Best regards,

I mean "checkbox in Filter dropdown", not "combobox in Filter dropdown". Sorry for mistake in the title ;)

Any idea?

Is it impossible to set the filters from code behind? Or I explained the problem unclearly?
