TreeListBox- cancel out of and show progress for long running filter operation

Grids for WPF Forum

Posted 3 years ago by Bill L
Version: 20.1.1


When we have a long running filter operation that can occur when filtering 50K+ items, what is the recommended best practice to cancel the filter operation and to show filter progress as it enumerates possibly all items?  Is there any event that indicates when a filter operation has started and ended?  These long running operations cause the UI to completely freeze until the filtering operation has completed.  Is there a recommended way to prevent this UI freeze such as when or where to "IsFilterActive" that kicks off the Filter operation?  We use a custom PredicateFilter that is set prior to setting


It appears the only property available is TreeListBox.IsFilterActive.  

Best regards,

Hi Bill,

Unfortunately the way it is now, the filtering process will occur in the main UI thread, so there isn't a way to cancel it while it executes.  I don't see that any events occur when the filtering process starts/ends either.  We've created a suggestion issue based on your feedback.
