When the active RenderMode of the RadGrid is set to Mobile, its filtering layout and user interaction will differ from that of its standard interface. This is done to optimize the user convenience when the page is accessed via a mobile or tablet device.

Default Filtering

In the Mobile filtering version of RadGrid, the regular auto-generated textboxes are replaced with an appropriate filter form,which can be used to type in the desired filtering criteria. To enable this functionality, you have to set the AllowFilteringByColumn property of the corresponding GridTableView to True.
