DynamicFilterExpression DynamicFilterExpression DynamicFilterExpression DynamicFilterExpression Class

Definition

Modifies a database query by using a value from specified filter control.

Examples

The following example shows how to use the DynamicFilterExpression control to select a filter template in a page. The filter template is selected by the DynamicFilter control that is identified by DynamicFilterExpression control through its ControID property.

<asp:QueryExtender ID="QueryExtender1"   
    TargetControlID="GridDataSource" runat="server">  
    <asp:DynamicFilterExpression ControlID="CategoryFilterID" />  
</asp:QueryExtender>  

Remarks

The DynamicFilterExpression class enables you to modify a database query using the values that are assigned in a DynamicFilter control. This control delegates the task of building of the IQueryable query to a specialized control such as QueryableFilterRepeater control or DynamicFilter control.

The filter controls in turn delegate the building of the query to the filter template that they reference. The query is then executed by the data source control that is referenced by the QueryExtender control.

To use the DynamicFilterExpression class in a page, you follow these steps:

In the previous steps it is assumed that the related filter controls, data-bound controls, and data source control are defined in the page.
