Our WinForms application needs a filter on the DataGridView control. The google search took me back to July 2006 when Microsoft published Building a Drop-Down Filter List for a DataGridView Column Header Cell.

Fast forward back to 2017. Turns out someone put the code on codeplex under datagridviewfilter and I just downloaded the sources.

  1. Add 3 files to project
  2. find-replace DataGridViewTextBoxColumn -> DataGridViewAutoFilterTextBoxColumn
  3. done

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
