The built-in filtering functionality enables the user to filter the displayed DropDownTree items by their text value.

By default, filtering is disabled and can be performed over string values using the field set as DataTextField.

The DropDownTree supports the following filter values:

  • StartsWith
  • EndsWith
  • Contains

The following example demonstrates how to set the filter of the DropDownTree.

        .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
            .Read(read => read
                .Action("Read_DropDownTreeData", "Home")
    <kendo-dropdowntree datatextfield="Name" datavaluefield="id" filter="FilterType.Contains" name="dropdowntree"  style="width: 100%">
                <hierarchical-model id="id"></hierarchical-model>
                <read url="@Url.Action("Remote_DropDownTreeData", "Home")" />
