How to display diff value on the column filter from the one



User enquires whether one can have one property as the display value in the grid column and on the same column filter by on another property?
For example if there are two properties in the pagelist – 1) ShortName and 2) Description.
In the grid it refers ShortName property to display the value but on column filtering user requires Description to be displayed by which it can filter the results.

Steps to Reproduce

Click on the column filter in the grid and user is not able to get the complete data of the Description.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior: 

1. Create a section and drag and drop the property that you want to show in the grid column.
2, Include this section in a repeated grid column.
3. Now on column properties one can see an option to set property for sorting and filtering. Provide the property name that is required to see in filter window.
4. When user uses the main section having repeated grid one can see separate properties in grid column and filter window.
