That's it. You can now filter the grid by using the automatically generated categories in RadFilterView.

this.radGridView1.EnableFiltering = true;
this.radFilterView1.AssociatedControl = this.radGridView1;

Me.RadGridView1.DataSource = Me.ProductsBindingSource
Me.RadGridView1.EnableFiltering = True
Me.RadFilterView1.AssociatedControl = Me.RadGridView1
