Searching/Filtering Grid using Syncfusion.EJ2.Base.DataOperations with Entity Framework Core 3


There is a problem with textual searching using Syncfusion.EJ2.Base.DataOperations in Entity Framework Core 3.
Since EF Core 3 now executes linq queries on the database, e.g. .ToString() functions cause an exception when they are executed.
 EF Core 2.x did it in memory (which was really a bad thing), therefore the problem was not existing.

Since we don't know if EF Core 3 will (at all) fix this, a patch for this issue would be desirable.

Thank you in advance, 

as a remark:
https://www.syncfusion.com/forums/147935/-net-core-3-0-search-problem describes the same problem, but i don't know if anybody takes notice of this thread.

Hi Christian, 

We have considered this as a usability feature improvement “Problem with DataOperations when bind IQueryable data to Grid”, and logged a task for the same. 
You can now track the current status of your request, review the proposed resolution timeline, and contact us for any further inquiries through this link.  
We have planned to implement this feature in our Volume 4, 2019 release. Until then we suggest you to bind List values to Grid to overcome the problem you are facing.
