XamDataGrid TemplateField Filtering Issues

I’ve encountered an issue with XamDataGrid when attempting to filter a template field using alternate Binding.

 I am trying to Filter a field using another field(which has the real data on which the user will filter on)


  • In  the attached solution, sorting works – however on filtering – the search text keeps disappearing (I think this is due to us changing the recordfilter field to another field at the point before which we apply the pending filter).

  • I have tried using a converter but that seems to break the sortcomparers as we get the converted value instead of the object.

  • Filtercomparers when used –  don’t get called either

 I have included comments in the xaml file. Can you please advise?
