property Column.FilterOnType as Boolean

A Boolean expression that specifies whether the column gets filtered as the user types characters in the drop down filter window.
By default, the FilterOnType property is False. The Filter-On-Type feature allows you to filter the control's data based on the typed characters. Use the

property is exStartWith, or include in the filter list only the items that contains the typed characters, if the AutoSearch property is exContains. Click the X button on the filterbar, and so the control removes the filter, and so all data is displayed. The control fires the

property to customize the text being displayed in the drop down filter window. Use the
