Hide column in filterbar?

I know I can disable a filterbar for a column by setting AllowFiltering = false for that single column but is there a way to not show the filter field at all in the filterbar for a particular column?

Hi Scott,

  Greetings from Syncfusion support.

  Based on your query, you want to hide the filterbar if the filtering is disabled for the particular column. Your requirement can be achieved in the created event of the EJ2 Grid.

Please refer the below code example:


function created() {

    var grid = document.getElementsByClassName('e-grid')[0].ej2_instances[0];

    var filter = grid.element.querySelectorAll('.e-filterbarcell');

    var columns = grid.getVisibleColumns();

    for (var i = 0i < columns.lengthi++) {

      if (!columns[i].allowFiltering) {

Thank you Joseph.  I ended up going the route of a search bar instead for now but this website is for my wife and she may still end up wanting the individual filters, in which case I will use your example, which looks to make perfect sense.  Appreciate your assistance.
