I am facing an issue what I need is expose some fields for search criteria & put these search boxes/drop downs to my sidebar, I didn't find the option "expose from in block" in the Exposed Form section, I have a block view, It is showing on the view page but not on the block view why?

see the snapshot below.

Is there any solution regarding? Thanks

Have a look at the Views Block Exposed Filter Blocks module.

Views normally restricts exposed form blocks to page displays. So if you want an exposed form for a block display you either have to go with this module or you build your own block in code and embed the exposed form there.
