SfDataGrid - Cannot add filter

I'm using the SfDataGrid inside a TabControlEx. When the SfDataGrid is in the first TabItemEx, I can use the Window.Loaded event to set SfDataGrid.ItemsSource and SfDataGrid.View.Filter.

When i place the SfDataGrid into the second TabItemEx, SfDataGrid.View == null during Windows.Loaded and so i cannot set SfDataGrid.View.Filter.

I have attached a project that illustrates the issue.

Many Thanks,

Hi James,

You can set the View.Filter  by handling ItemsSourceChanged event. Find the code snippet and modified sample below,

sfDataGridA.ItemsSourceChanged += sfDataGridA_ItemsSourceChanged;
sfDataGridB.ItemsSourceChanged += sfDataGridB_ItemsSourceChanged;

void sfDataGridB_ItemsSourceChanged(object sender, Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Grid.GridItemsSourceChangedEventArgs e)


    if (sfDataGridB.View != null)

        sfDataGridB.View.Filter = Filter;


void sfDataGridA_ItemsSourceChanged(object sender, Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Grid.GridItemsSourceChangedEventArgs e)


    if (sfDataGridA.View != null)

        sfDataGridA.View.Filter = Filter;
