Multiple RowFilters on a dataview

When I add multiple filters on a dataview it seems to ignore the preceding filters and just filters based on one of the criteria. Here is an example:


// Make DataView (for filtering)
                  DataView dv = new DataView();
                  dv.Table = ds.Tables[0];

                  dv.AllowDelete = true;
                  dv.AllowEdit = true;
                  dv.AllowNew = true;

                  // Filter by online
                  if (showOnline.Checked)
                        dv.RowFilter = "isOnline=true";
      
                  // Filter by Gender
                  if (GenderList.SelectedIndex.ToString().Length > 0)
                        dv.RowFilter = "gender="+GenderList.SelectedIndex.ToString();

                  dv.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.ModifiedCurrent;

                  // Sort by "Show me first" info
                  if (ShowFirst.SelectedIndex==0) // New People
                        dv.Sort = "LastLoginDate desc";

                  if (ShowFirst.SelectedIndex==1) // Last Logged In
                        dv.Sort = "JoinDate asc";

                  if (ShowFirst.SelectedIndex==2) // Updated
                        dv.Sort = "LastUpdatedDate desc";
                  
                  // Bind to the datalist
                  BrowseResults.DataSource = dv;
                  BrowseResults.DataBind();


This results in just filter for Gender, and not whos online.

Any Ideas?

use and condition

string strFilter;

               if (showOnline.Checked)
                    strFilter = "isOnline=true";

               if (GenderList.SelectedIndex.ToString().Length > 0)
                   if (strFilter.Trim()!="")
                    strFilter = "gender="+GenderList.SelectedIndex.ToString();
                   else
                    strFilter = " AND gender="+GenderList.SelectedIndex.ToString();

and then apply filter like

 dv.RowFilter =strFilter

I think that the RowFilter should work as a collection - just like the SqlParameter class does. That way you can add and remove items in a much less clunky fashion.

It doesn't really explain using multiple filters on the .NET framework sdk either. MS could definitaly allborate on that.

Thanks for your help!
