Master Detail grid with grouping enabled for the detail
When a grid is grouped, a "Header" is added to the grid. This header contains the name of the current grouping.
If the value to be grouped is included in the detail grid as a column and is visible, ok. The column name is displayed in the header. e.g. "Contact Name".
If the value is either not included in the grid or has its visible property set to false the header contains the actual property name. e.g. "contactName". This is true regardless of the name property on the column or in the model.
Can this header be turned off?
I have a situation where only one column is to be grouped, its done programmatically, no user input allowed and the grid must be grouped on this value. The existence of the added header is both unnesessary and confusing. When a user sees a red cross they think something is wrong. Its confusing because they cannot cancel current grouping, further it serves no information purpose because the grouping appears in the detail grid rows.
