[Data Grid Reactive] Disable filtering for a single column
Forge component by OutSystems R&D
Application Type


Is it possible to disable filtering for a single column? This feature would be particularly relevant to the new action column, where presumably every row has the same text/ prompt.



Hello @Kristi Kitz,

Thanks for bringing this subject to the discussion.

At the moment, this functionality is not available. We already have an issue about it in our backlog and the team will look into it!


Right now, I would suggest the following workaround (.oml attached to the reply)

Create a new action on the OnReady Event. Inside, you might want to add a JavaScript just like in the image below.

For the code, I used the snippet:

var column = GridAPI.ColumnManager.GetColumnById($parameters.ColumnID);




    .filterType = 0; // disable the filter for the specified column

After setting the GridID and the ColumnID (to which you want to remove the filter):

You should end up with something like this:

Hope this answer is useful.

Best regards,

Hi Tiago,

Thank-you for the prompt response, and the simple work around - I had no trouble implementing it, and it works perfectly.

Thanks again!


For anyone who comes to see this thread later, there is no longer a need to do a workaround to achieve this as there is now a client action (DeactivateFilter) in the data grid API. Kudos to the team for implementing this feature.
