Search in GridGroupingControl

Is there any search capability built in the gridgroupingcontrol? If I have to do it myself, any suggestion for me to start with. The difference between filtering and searching: filtering - you see only the records satisfying the condition. Searching - you locate and highlighting the satisfying record. No filter applied or filter setting is a precondtion. Thanks, albert

Here is a forum thread that discusses how you can currently search a grouping grid. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=17240

Thanks for the pointer. I checked "FindRecord" method. It returns the index of the first record. If I want to highlight all records matching the criteria, I may have to loop through the whole table. Am I right? Thanks, Albert >Here is a forum thread that discusses how you can currently search a grouping grid. > >http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=17240

Hi Albert, if you want to conditionally highlight records, check out also the ConditionalFormats collection. For example: gridConditionalFormatDescriptor1.Appearance.AnyHeaderCell.Interior = new Syncfusion.Drawing.BrushInfo(System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(((System.Byte)(192)), ((System.Byte)(255)), ((System.Byte)(192)))); gridConditionalFormatDescriptor1.Expression = "[CategoryID]=5"; gridConditionalFormatDescriptor1.Name = "Criteria 2"; gridConditionalFormatDescriptor2.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.BaseStyle = "Beige"; gridConditionalFormatDescriptor2.Name = "Criteria 1"; gridConditionalFormatDescriptor2.RecordFilters.Add(new Syncfusion.Grouping.RecordFilterDescriptor("CategoryID", Syncfusion.Grouping.FilterLogicalOperator.Or, new Syncfusion.Grouping.FilterCondition[] { new Syncfusion.Grouping.FilterCondition(Syncfusion.Grouping.FilterCompareOperator.Equals, "2")})); this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.ConditionalFormats.Add(gridConditionalFormatDescriptor1); this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.ConditionalFormats.Add(gridConditionalFormatDescriptor2); Stefan

Stefan, Thank you for pointing conditional formating. I believe the solution I am looking for is the combination of FindRecord and conditional formating. I will use conditional formating to highlight the records matching the critiria, and use FindRecord to change the first record is selected. Thanks again, Albert
