DataGrid2 - Column specific filtering should be allowed in header filter for improved UX

1

Currently, in DataGrid 2 you have 2 options when it comes to filtering:

  1. Place a filter widget under each column. Allows for column specific filtering but the filtering width is only as wide as its containing column/can look overwhelming if you have a grid of multiple columns with filters/looks very bare if you only filter on say 2 columns out of 10.
  2. Add a header filter. Better looking UI/looks cleaner/can be customised. But each search type (text/bool etc) will run across multiple attributes, so unable to multisearch attributes of the same type.

 

So my idea is for either:

  1. Allow when using the header filter in DataGrid2, to specify which attribute the search is tied to.
  2. OR, allow column specific filters to be more customisable (arranged in a layout about the table)

I like the configurability of datagrid2 currently. But controlling the datawidgets more like the old listview widgets where you can assign any data you’ll like would be a welcome feature.
