BindingListCollectionView.CustomFilter Property

Gets or sets a custom filter.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Data
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public string CustomFilter { get; set; }
<object CustomFilter="string" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string that specifies how the items are filtered.

Use the CanCustomFilter property to test whether the view supports custom filtering before assigning a string to this property.

The syntax depends on the IBindingListView implementation. For an example of the supported filter expression syntax, see RowFilter.

Note that if you have multiple BindingListCollectionView objects and the underlying source is a DataTable or a DataView, the view objects do not sort or filter independently. For example, if you have two BindingListCollectionView objects associated with the same DataTable and you perform sorting on one of the views, the order of items in the other view can be affected. This is because BindingListCollectionView objects use the underlying IBindingList for sorting and filtering functionalities.
