RadListView provides you with the functionality to programmatically filter its data at runtime. This can be achieved through adding filter descriptors that implement the IFilter interface to the RadListView.FilterDescriptors collection. You can use our DelegateFilterDescriptor implementation.


  • Filter: Gets or sets the function used to check whether a data item passes the filter or not.



<telerikDataControls:RadListView x:Name="listView" ItemsSource="{Binding Items}">
          <StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal">
            <Label Text="Name:"/>
            <Label Text="{Binding Name}"/>
            <Label Text=", Age:"/>
            <Label Text="{Binding Age}"/>


Add the following code to the Page class:

public Page()
    this.BindingContext = new ViewModel();
    listView.FilterDescriptors.Add(new DelegateFilterDescriptor { Filter = this.Filter });

private bool Filter(object arg)
    var age = ((Item)arg).Age;
    return age >= 25 && age <= 35;

Here is the ViewModel class:

public class ViewModel
    private static Random rand = new Random();

    public ViewModel()
        this.Items = GetData(100);

    public ObservableCollection<Item> Items { get; set; }

    private static ObservableCollection<Item> GetData(int count)
        var items = new ObservableCollection<Item>();

        for (var i = 0; i < count; i++)
            items.Add(new Item { Name = string.Format("Customer {0}", i), Age = rand.Next(20, 41) });

        return items;

And here is the data class:

public class Item
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public int Age { get; set; }
