Monday, May 23, 2011 11:28 AMThere is an unhandled exception in Filter Extension:
Use filter with a query linked referencing at least 2 tables (entities) eg.: Products and Categories, and while choosing a clause in a filter choose the name of entity (parent node) instead of field inside eg.:
Where Category equals Beverages
Where Category.Name equals Beverages.
This will throw an exception:
"Cannot convert Beverages to entity type".
As I think this is a great extension it would be worth fixing the code in the sample for download

The extension has been updated to fix the issue. You'll need to remove the version with your project and add the new one.
