How to customize the controls inside menu filter dialog

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejGrid

We can override the ejAutocomplete control in the menu filter dialog as ejDropDownList control by using create event of Grid. The following code example shows the way to override the ejAutocomplete in the filter menu.

  1. Render the Grid




  1. Before override, we need to bind open event for filter dialog in the create event of Grid control then destroy the existing ejAutocomplete and render the ejDropDownList in the open event like as below.


The following screenshot display the default values while adding the record.

I'm afraid this does not work. The open function is never called on my side... any suggestions?

Hi Klaus,


We checked in our sample and open function has been called when we open the filter menu. In this documentation we bind the open event only for the string Dialog. So, when we open the number dialog the open function will not be called. So, please ensure that you have open the string dialog in your sample.


For your convenience we have attached a sample and please download the sample from the following link.

If you still face the same issue, share the following details. 


1. Share the code example of a Grid.


2. Essential Studio Version details.


3. If possible, replicate the issue in the attached sample.
