How to apply search and filter for one column in SfDataGrid?

Platform: WPF |
Control: SfDataGrid |
Published Date: September 19, 2018 |
Last Revised Date: September 21, 2018

You can apply the searching operation for one column by inheriting SearchHelper class in SfDataGrid and overriding the SearchCell and FilterRecords methods.

In the sample, the searching operation has been performed for EmployeeId column based on the text entered in the text box and when the text box lost its focus or pressed the Enter key in the text box.

Refer to the following code snippets to apply the search filter for one column in SfDataGrid.

This solution doesn't work for FindNext() and FindPrevious() methods.

Hi EloIT,

We have analyzed your query to perform FindNext and FindPrevious operation using search in one column. You can achieve this by overriding MatchSearchText in SearchHelperExt class as like below code snippet.

public class SearchHelperExt : SearchHelper 
protected override bool MatchSearchText(GridColumn column, object record) 
            if(column.MappingName == "EmployeeId") 
                return base.MatchSearchText(column, record); 
            return false; 

private void NextButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 

        private void PrevButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 

Please find sample for the same from the below link
