Hi Syncfusion, I have a problem with a GridDataBoundGrid that has a filterbar attached. In the grid I need to make copies of exiting rows, which are inserted into the grid again. F.i: Before: Column Headers: [ID] [Name] [Code] Filterbar: [] [] [] Data: 1 name1 code1 2 name2 code2 Now copy row with id = 1. After: Column Headers: [ID] [Name] [Code] Filterbar: [] [] [] Data: 1 name1 code1 2 name2 code2 1 name1 code1 Now I use the filterbar: Before: Column Headers: [ID] [Name] [Code] Filterbar: [] [name2] [] Data: 2 name2 code2 Now copy row with id = 2 After: Column Headers: [ID] [Name] [Code] Filterbar: [] [name2] [] Data: 2 name2 code2 2 name2 code2 My question is: How do i preserve [name2] in the filterbar, when I need to update the grid due to the new row? My update grid code looks like this: this.Grid.BeginUpdate(); if (this.filterBar != null && this.filterBar.Wired) { rowFilter = this.filterBar.RowFilter; // preserve rowfilter so that i can be applied after update this.filterBar.UnwireGrid(); } this.Grid.DataSource = null; // Do some stuff this.Grid.DataSource = datasource; this.filterBar.WireGrid(this.Grid); this.Grid.EndUpdate();

Try code like:
string saveFilter;
ArrayList saveStyles;
private void button4_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{  //save the filter settings
	saveStyles = new ArrayList();
	for(int col = 1; col <= this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.ColCount; ++col)
		saveStyles.Add(this.gridDataBoundGrid1.GetViewStyleInfo(1, col, true));
	this.saveFilter = this.theFilterBar.RowFilter;
private void button5_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{	//apply the saved filter settings
	for(int col = 1; col <= this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.ColCount; ++col)
		this.gridDataBoundGrid1[1, col] = saveStyles[col-1] as GridStyleInfo;
	this.theFilterBar.RowFilter = this.saveFilter;

This does not solve the problem. Perhaps due to the fact that i''m using a filterbar with values like described in http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=34385

Here is our sample modified with the above code showing it working for me using version 3.3 and later. I can click the save filter button, load another datasource, then reload the original datasource and then apply the saved filter. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/CS_38faf3eb.zip If you can add your derived filterbar class to this sample, we can try to track down what is failing.

Hi, I had to set the RowFilter on the original datasource to preserve my filtering: fslsGrid.DataSource = SomeDTO.entries.DefaultView; this.filterBar.WireGrid(this.fslsGrid); if (saveStyles.Count > 0) { // set filterbar selections again for(int col = 1; col <= this.fslsGrid.Model.ColCount; ++col) this.fslsGrid[1, col] = saveStyles[col-1] as GridStyleInfo; this.filterBar.RowFilter = rowFilter; this.SomeDTO.entries.DefaultView.RowFilter = rowFilter; this.fslsGrid.Refresh(); } thanks for your help :-)
