filter grid from separate dhtmlxcombo component

We are trying to develop a proof of concept to recommend purchase of the Pro version of dhtmlxSuite. Within our proof of concept project, we are trying to filter a grid population based on the selection from a separate dhtmlxcombo component (not in the Grid Header).

Some of the methods (e.g. makefilter, etc) only works in the Pro version. Is there a way to do this in the Standard version for now?

Thank you in advance to any guidance.

You can get the full-featured evaluation version of dhtmlxSuite PRO to try these features. Please contact sales [at] and ask for the trial version.
