I've been playing around with the export functionality of the RadGridView. Of particular interest, is what happens when you export a grid that has grouping enabled.
Though it works, it doesn't actually show what column the grid is grouped on.
This is apparent in the export demo (http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#GridView/Exporting).
Group the grid by the name column, and then export it. The resulting grid will list the name that it's grouped by, but doesn't state that it is actually grouped by name.
In my own tests, I've tried using the "GroupHeaderFormatString", so it will produce something like "Name : Boston Crab Meat", but that format string seems to be ignored.
Is there a solution for this ? The export functionality is AMAZINGLY awesome and useful, but this caveat may be a sticking point.
