Change filter of the one view

I'm trying to change a grid filter that only the perspective view.

I was predictable, my code doesn't work.
The following code changes grid filter for all viewport.

    bd = doc.GetActiveBaseDraw()
    drawFilter = bd.GetDisplayFilter()
    cam = bd.GetEditorCamera()
    projection = cam.GetProjection()
    if projection == c4d.Pperspective:
        if drawFilter & c4d.DISPLAYFILTER_GRID:
            bd[c4d.BASEDRAW_DISPLAYFILTER_GRID] = False
            bd[c4d.BASEDRAW_DISPLAYFILTER_GRID] = True

Could I change grid filter for one of a view or only perspective view?
If it possible, where can I get this information in the SDK?

I'm afraid you've hit a limitation. It's not possible to change the filter for only one view.
The display filter is synchronized for all views and the API doesn't allow to circumvent this limitation.

In fact it's possible to change the filter for a specific view via the UI with the following steps:
Options->Configure->Filter->Right-click on a parameter->Make Parameter Local

Unfortunately there's no way to do this with the API.

See the Cinema 4D documentation here.
