Hello;

 

In your WPF control it looks like you can do this:

https://www.telerik.com/forums/how-to-add-columngroup-in-radgridview-columngroups-at-run-time-from-code-behind

 

How can I add a new columnGroup to the current ViewDefinition?

 

Thank you,

 

Joe

I seem to *almost* have it working with this:

 

ColumnGroupsViewDefinition view = new ColumnGroupsViewDefinition();
           view = (ColumnGroupsViewDefinition)transactions_grid.MasterTemplate.ViewDefinition;
           view.ColumnGroups.Add(new GridViewColumnGroup("New Group"));
           view.ColumnGroups[0].Rows.Add(new GridViewColumnGroupRow());
 
          
           GridViewTextBoxColumn newColumn = new GridViewTextBoxColumn("holder");
           newColumn.HeaderText = "Place Holder";
           transactions_grid.Columns.Add(newColumn);
 
           view.ColumnGroups[0].Rows[0].ColumnNames.Add("holder");
           transactions_grid.ViewDefinition = view;

 

But I get a 

System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: 'Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.'

KeyNotFoundException: The given key was not present in the dictionary.

 

thrown on the Application.Run(new RadForm1())

??

I almost have it working with the following code:

private void add_subgroup_btn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            
            ColumnGroupsViewDefinition view = new ColumnGroupsViewDefinition();
            view = (ColumnGroupsViewDefinition)transactions_grid.MasterTemplate.ViewDefinition;
            view.ColumnGroups.Add(new GridViewColumnGroup("New Group"));
            view.ColumnGroups[0].Rows.Add(new GridViewColumnGroupRow());
 
           
            GridViewTextBoxColumn newColumn = new GridViewTextBoxColumn("holder");
            newColumn.HeaderText = "Place Holder";
            transactions_grid.Columns.Add(newColumn);
 
            view.ColumnGroups[0].Rows[0].ColumnNames.Add("holder");
            transactions_grid.ViewDefinition = view;
 
 
        }

Sorry for the duplicate posts.  It kept saying "sorry - something went wrong!" -- but then it wound up posting multiple times.  You would think that by now these groups would allow editing or deleting your own posts.

Hello, Joe,  

Thank you for writing.  

If you need to add a new column to the applied ColumnGroupsViewDefinition of RadGridView, it is necessary to create a new instance of the ColumnGroupsViewDefinition and add all of the existing columns together with the new column. Then, apply this new instance of the ColumnGroupsViewDefinition to the RadGridView.ViewDefinition property.

I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
 
Regards,
Dess
