When the AutoGenerateColumns="True" and filter not match, the datagrid become invisible.

You have to add messagebox and return.

Please Help me.

There are several ways to implement the desired functionality.  The easiest way would be to change the  header_PropertyChanged method found on line 210 of the JibGrid.xaml.cs.  The purpose of this event handler is to create the filter predicate each time a the user changes any filter values in the column headers.  We simply need to apply the predicate, and then verify that rows exist if the grid is set to AutoGenerateColumns.  If there are no rows in the ItemSource for the Grid we display the messagebox as requested and since the sender is the last column header which has the offending filter we can simply reset it.  Here is the updated method.  As a side note, you could make each control know what the previous filter was and revert to it, but that is a more envasive change.


private void header_PropertyChanged(object sender, System.ComponentModel.PropertyChangedEventArgs e)
            PagedCollectionView view = this.ItemsSource as PagedCollectionView;
            Predicate<object> predicate = null;
            foreach (var filter in FilterHeaders)
                if (filter.HasPredicate)
                    if (predicate == null)
                        predicate = filter.GeneratePredicate();
                        predicate = predicate.And(filter.GeneratePredicate());
            view.Filter = predicate;

            //Here is the change!

            if ( this.AutoGenerateColumns ==true && view.ItemCount == 0)
                MessageBox.Show("You have filterd out all the columns.  The filter has been removed.");
                ColumnFilterControl header = sender as ColumnFilterControl;
                if (header != null)

Hi emyabdo,

You can use the following,

if (this.AutoGenerateColumns == true && view.ItemCount == 0)

       MessageBox.Show("You have filterd out all the columns.  The filter has been removed.");

        foreach (var filter in FilterHeaders)
                 if (filter.HasPredicate)
