public event FilterEventHandler Filter
<object Filter="FilterEventHandler" .../>

Views can apply a filter to a collection. This means that although an item might exist in the collection, a particular view is intended to show only a certain subset of the full collection.

You can use this event to set an event handler to provide filtering logic.

The following example shows how to set an event handler for the Filter event. In this example, listingDataView is an instance of CollectionViewSource.

listingDataView.Filter += new FilterEventHandler(ShowOnlyBargainsFilter);

The following shows the implementation of the example ShowOnlyBargainsFilter filter event handler. This event handler uses the Accepted property to filter out AuctionItem objects that have a CurrentPrice of $25 or greater.

private void ShowOnlyBargainsFilter(object sender, FilterEventArgs e)
{
    AuctionItem product = e.Item as AuctionItem;
    if (product != null)
    {
        // Filter out products with price 25 or above 
        if (product.CurrentPrice < 25)
        {
            e.Accepted = true;
        }
        else
        {
            e.Accepted = false;
        }
    }
}
