How do I both filter AND search a specific column?

Asked On November 7, 2019 12:29 PM UTC

I visited https://help.syncfusion.com/wpf/datagrid/search for the purpose of doing two things:
1. Filter results
2. Column-specific search

I've implemented them both but the problem is that the filtering works regardless of the column specified.


Say I have this table:
Viper Steel1Patriot
Vengeance LPX2Corsair
Trident Z3G.Skill

Now I want to:

1. Filter results that has "ri"

2. Search only under the column "Name"

What happens after running "ProductDataGrid.SearchHelper.Search("ri");" is:

1. 2nd row (Vengeance LPX) gets filtered out - this is intentional and running fine

2. It'll still show the 1st row with Viper Steel because the string "ri" exists within the brand Pat"ri"ot. But what I really wanted to do was to only look for "ri" among the Name column, if it doesn't exist there then filter it out, it doesn't matter whether there's a "ri" string from other columns.
