property Group.FilterBarPromptVisible as Boolean

 TypeDescription 
   Boolean A boolean expression that specifies whether the filter prompt field is visible or hidden. The filter prompt is shown in the bottom part of the control, where the filter bar is shown.  
By default, The FilterBarPromptVisible property is False. The filter prompt feature allows you to filter the items as you type while the filter bar is visible on the bottom part of the list area. The Filter prompt feature allows at runtime filtering data on hidden columns too. Use the FilterBarPromptVisible property to show the filter prompt. Use the FilterBarPrompt property to specify the HTML caption being displayed in the filter bar when the filter pattern is missing. The FilterBarPromptPattern property specifies the pattern to filter the list. Changing the FilterBarPromptPattern property does not require calling the ApplyFilter method to apply the new filter, only if filtering is required right a way. The FilterBarPromptType property specifies the type of filtering when the user edits the prompt in the filter bar.  The FilterBarPromptColumns property specifies the list of columns to be used when filtering by prompt. The DisplayFilterButton property specifies whether the column's header displays a filter button. The VisibleItemCount property retrieves the number of visible items in the list. The control fires the FilterChanging event just before applying the filter, and  FilterChange once the list gets filtered. Use the FilterBarCaption property to change the caption in the filter bar once a new filter is applied.
