Hi Voda, 

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.   
We created a sample where we created an external ASP textbox. After mentioning the values in the textbox, then click search button to filter the particular column using filterColumn method of ejGrid.   
If we have misunderstood your query, please elaborate your requirement to provide better solution.   

Find the code example and sample: 

<asp:Content runat="server" ID="BodyContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent"> 
    <asp:TextBox ID="textbox" runat="server"></asp:TextBox> 
      <ej:Button ID="button" ClientSideOnClick="changed" Type="Button" runat="server" Text="search"></ej:Button> 
        <ej:Grid ID="Grid" runat="server" AllowSorting="true" AllowPaging="true"> 
    function changed(args) { 
        var gridObj = $("#<%=Grid.ClientID%>").ejGrid("instance"); 
        gridObj.model.allowFiltering = true; 
        var value = $("#<%=textbox.ClientID%>").val(); 
        gridObj.filterColumn("CustomerID", "contains", value, "and", true);    }

After I put this code, refresh button stop working.
Row became editable - I don't want that.

Is there a way to do it vb.net code behind?

Hi Hrvoje, 

Thanks for the update. 

In the last update, we have updated the sample with non-editable grid and you have mentioned the rows become editable after you put the mentioned code. So, please provide the following details to validate the issue,   
1. You have also mentioned that the refresh button stopped working. So, please share the use of the refresh button.  
2. Code example of an rendered Grid. 

3.  Essential Studio Version details.
