Blazor Filtering Overview

The Gantt Tree component offers built-in support for filtering.


To enable filtering, set the grid's FilterMode property to one of the following values:

The behavior of the filter input and the available filter operators will depend on the column data type. For example, a boolean field will only have the options "is true" and "is false" and will not have operators like "contains" or "greater than".

You can filter more than one column at a time, and all filter rules will be applied together with an AND logic.

Filter Descriptors

The Gantt filter state is stored in CompositeFilterDescriptors. The below information is important if you want to get or change the Gantt filters programmatically.

Each CompositeFilterDescriptor contains a collection of FilterDescriptors. All descriptors in the collection are applied with an AND or an OR LogicalOperator.

  • Filter Row - each CompositeFilterDescriptor targets a specific field. By default, one filter can be applied to a field using the Filter Row operator. The filter value is stored in the first FilterDescriptor instance of the CompositeFilterDescriptor for that field.

  • Filter Menu - each CompositeFilterDescriptor targets a specific field. Filter values from the separate filter operators in the menu are stored in different FilterDescriptor instances of the dedicated CompositeFilterDescriptor for that field.

Customize The Filter Editors

You can customize the editors rendered in the Gantt by providing the FilterEditorType attribute, exposed on the <GanttColumn>. The FilterEditorType attribute accepts a member of the GanttTreeListFilterEditorType enum:

Field data type GanttTreeListFilterEditorType enum members
DateTime GanttTreeListFilterEditorType.DatePicker

<TelerikGantt Data="@Data"
        <GanttColumn Field="Id"
        <GanttColumn Field="Title"
                     Title="Task Title">
        <GanttColumn Field="PercentComplete"
        <GanttColumn Field="Start"
        <GanttColumn Field="End"
                     DisplayFormat="End: {0:d}"

        public int Id { get; set; }
        public int? ParentId { get; set; }

                    End = new DateTime(2020, 12, 7 + i + j),
                    PercentComplete = Math.Round(random.NextDouble(), 2)
