Setting FilterMenu Search Type

I have a grid that I'm using the FilterBar FilterType. The problem is that for string columns it forces a search of "Starts with" which is very useless for us. Is there a way to manually override this and use "Contains" or other search criteria?

My control code:
        .FilterSettings(filter => { filter.FilterType(FilterType.FilterBar);
        .ClientSideEvents(eve => { eve.RecordClick("gotoResource"); })
        .Columns(col =>
            col.Field("ResourceTypeName").HeaderText("Resource Type").TextAlign(TextAlign.Left).Width(80).Add();

Previously we were using the Menu Filter which allows you to choose the search filter from a menu, but this was painful as it would always default to an option that we never want to use.

Help please!
