Intuitive record filtering

A common use case with grids is the need for record filtering, allowing users to easily locate records that match the given filter while temporarily eliminating the others. Filtering a GXT grid is done with the use of GridFilter, a plugin that provides a more robust filtering than the implementation found in a GXT store.

GridFilter provides a programmatic and graphical interface, an event model, and adds a new menu to the header menu on a grid with which users can enable, disable, and configure the filter on a given column.

Using a GridFilter one can filter the records on a grid from a "price" column such that only records with price values between a range and having a specific value will show up.
