  public filterTemplate(props:any): any {
      /** The enabled attributes will be added based on the column property. */
      return (<DropDownListComponent enabled={props.column.allowFiltering} id={props.column.field}popupHeight='250px'

        this.grid.filterByColumn('CustomerID', 'equal', args.value);
  public render() {
      this.filterTemplate = this.filterTemplate.bind(this);
      this.onChange = this.onChange.bind(this);
