Remove filter from column

Asked On February 25, 2016 12:03 AM UTC

I know that I can use something similar to remove all filters from a grid:

var gridObj = $("#Grid").ejGrid("instance");
gridObj.model.filterSettings.filteredColumns = [];

However, all I really want to do is remove the filters from a specific column:

Here is an example of how the filter is applied:
var gridObj = $("#AccountOrderGroupsGrid").ejGrid("instance");
gridObj.filterColumn("@nameof(AccountOrderGroup.OnHandQuantity)", ej.FilterOperators.notEqual, 0, "and", true);

How can I remove only this filter?

Thanks, Jeff

Hi Jeffrey,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

To remove the filter for a specific column, we suggest you to use  clearFiltering method of ejGrid. In this method we need to pass the field name as a parameter.

Please find the code example and sample:

@Html.EJ().Button("buttonnormal").Text("RemoveFilter").ClientSideEvents(eve => eve.Click("click"))



        .AllowPaging()    /*Paging Enabled*/

        .EditSettings(edit => { edit.AllowAdding().AllowDeleting().AllowEditing(); })



        .FilterSettings(filter => { filter.FilterType(FilterType.Menu); })

        .ToolbarSettings(toolbar =>


            toolbar.ShowToolbar().ToolbarItems(items =>









        .ClientSideEvents(eve => eve.Create("action").ActionComplete("complete"))

        .Columns(col =>


            col.Field("OrderID").HeaderText("Order ID").IsPrimaryKey(true).TextAlign(TextAlign.Right).Width(75).Add();

            col.Field("CustomerID").HeaderText("Customer ID").ValidationRules(v => v.AddRule("required",true).AddRule("minlength", 3)).Width(80).Add();

            col.Field("EmployeeID").HeaderText("Employee ID").ValidationRules(v => v.AddRule("required",true)).TextAlign(TextAlign.Right).Width(75).Add();



<script type="text/javascript">

    function action(args) {

        var grid = $("#FlatGrid").ejGrid("instance");

        grid.filterColumn("CustomerID", "equal", "ALFKI", "and", true);


// Remove Filter for the particular column

    function click(args) {

        var grid = $("#FlatGrid").ejGrid("instance");

Thanks for the quick reply.

The solution doesn't appear to work when using a FilterType of Excel. I received the following error:

TypeError: this._excelFilter._predicates[0] is undefined
Line 10

Would you please look into this.
