The default GridView filter boxes are blank. Would like to show a greyed out prompt message to indicate this is a filter. Also a Search Magnifying glass Icon would be great. I posted a question stackexchange and got a few ideas - Ref: Users are confused and think search filter are input boxes. How best to indicate that they are for filtering search results? - User Experience Stack Exchange. Any options to satisfy the suggestions provided by the UX experts who answered the questions will also be great.
I would also like to put a Magnifying glass Icon on the SerialColumn of the filter row which is always blank.
