I have taken one filter control and one data grid in the win app. I am using entity framework for pull the data from DB. Earlier version filter control returns string in the form of sql statement so that i can use directly in the where condition of sql query but here in the new version of devExpress returning a string into entity-framework's string statement.

What I have tried:

older filter control string
Select Id, Name, Mobileno, EmailId, City from Usermaster where Name IN ('abc','xyz') and City not in ('abc') or City like 'abc%' or City like '%abc'

Now in Filter Control string for example
var blog = dbContext.Usermaster.Where(b => b.Name == 'abc').ToList();

I am not able to make where string dynamically as above in written in the query. Can some one help on this.?

You can try to use String.Contains for robust lookup instead of equality comparison.

var blog = dbContext.Usermaster.Where(b => b.Name.Contains("abc")).ToList();

How can we do dynamically with multiple columns? because column name and operators are not fixed it will come any.

var blog = dbContext.Usermaster.Where(b => b.Name.Contains("abc") ).ToList();
