Filter for QueryBuilder Columns


I've implemented a QueryFilter component and in general it is working as expected but because I have a lot of columns, I would like to add a search or filter to the column selection similar to the "AllowFiltering" and "FilterType" properties on a SfDropDownList.

I've tried to use the column templates with SfDropDownLists but it will only be used whenever a column that uses the template is already selected. Therefore the first query entry will always not have a search / filter which is not what I want.

Here is an example how I want it to work (currently only when a column is already selected)

Here is how it is when the first query entry is entered:

I will also attach a short video showing the issue.

Hopefully you can help me here.

Best regards,

Hi YuvanShankar,

I was unaware of the "QueryBuilderField" option as it is not documented. I think it would make sense to add that there.

With this my question / problem is solved. Thank you for you help!

Best regards,
