No there is no support for that in with standard SharePoint

The standard only specify that everything between '?' and '#' or end-of-url is the query string, but it's commonly aggreed that the format of the query string is 'ParamName=value[&ParamName=value]...', so the '=' in the querystring isn't specifying a condition it's only separating the parametername and the value

Do we have any other option to do this?. Also if i have two different content type is there any problem filtering the list?Task is filtering properly and i have one more contentype called taskfolder(Folder) its not filtering anyway... – My Name is Suresh May 16 '12 at 6:36
You can only filter on equals, but you can limit your Task Summary view to only show Tasks – Per Jakobsen May 16 '12 at 6:50
In my view i have both task and Summarytask,But its not filtering Summarytask it filters only task. Even the filed i am using to filter is different and its common to both xummary task. – My Name is Suresh May 16 '12 at 6:57

As mentioned in the dupe question on Stack Overflow

You can't AFAIK.

The workaround MAY be to create a calculated column and then filter on that.

E.g. create a column called "Not-Red" with formula


Then filter
