Presenting FilterList

Earlier today i decided to add ‘Filtering’ to my SortableBindingList. This resulted in writing a FilterList class. This class can be easily used as following

void textBoxFilter_KeyUp(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
	var filterChars = this.textBoxFilter.Text.ToLower();

void Filter(string filterChars)
	var persons = (FilterList<person>)this.dataGridView1.DataSource;
	persons.Filter(p => p.Firstname.ToLower().Contains(filterChars));

I even created a screencast to demonstrate it:
