The RecordManager that should be used to determine the unique values to display for each Field (optional), but should be specified if the associated FieldLayout’s FieldLayoutSettings.RecordFilterScope property is set to SiblingDataRecords. This allows the CustomFilterSelectionControl to properly display the unique data for the Field from the proper scope. If the RecordManager is not specified unique values for the Field across all data islands will be displayed.

When running locally a modal top level window will be created as the container to host the CustomFilterSelectionControl. When running in the browser as an XBAP application, a special control that simulates a window is created as the container to get around the lack of top level window support in XBAP applications (modality is also simulated in this case).
