Gridview Filtermodel Customization

Is it possible to override the Gridview filter fields that are created from the default text input to something else? I.E. a drop down list or checkbox? I figure it would operate like overriding the gridview itself but i cannot see a way to do it.

You can use my yii2-grid extension (refer demo here) which does this straightforward.

Else, you can extend/override the DataColumn to achieve this.

Awesome, looking at it now. thanks!
