The FilterFactory type exposes the following members.

Public methodFilterFactoryInitializes a new instance of the FilterFactory class.

Public methodCreateFilterControlCreates an instance of the filter template.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetFilterVirtualPathGets the virtual path of the filter template.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)

The FilterFactory class is used at run time by Dynamic Data to get an instance of a filter template for a specific column type.

You can override the methods that are defined in this class to customize how filter templates are loaded. For example, a custom implementation could load the filter templates from a location different than the default ~/DynamicData/Filters folder.

Dynamic Data provides filter templates for foreign-key, Boolean, and enumeration column types and displays them by using a DropDownList control. You can also create custom filter templates.

For an example of table row filtering uses the default filter templates, see the QueryableFilterRepeater class.
