I am building an application that is replacing an excel document to display information online.  The current excel document displays information like this,

-------------------------------------------------------------
|                 |                |               Column 3           |
|                 |                |---------------------------------|
| Column 1 | Column 2| Column 3.1 | Column 3.2 |
--------------------------------------------------------------
|      Data    |    Data    |      Data      |     Data        | 
--------------------------------------------------------------
|      Data    |    Data    |      Data      |     Data        |
--------------------------------------------------------------
|      Data    |    Data    |      Data      |     Data        |
--------------------------------------------------------------

I have not been able to figure out how format the column headers to display the information in this format.  Has anyone else tried to format column headers like this?

Hi Justin,

Thank you for taking an interest in our controls. Unfortunately RadGridView does not support the functionality you are requesting. 

Implementing such a feature is in our future plans however there will be some time before we can provide an ETA.

Is there any way to accomplish the headers shown here in Q3's release?

Hello Ryan,

You can use Header property to customize this similar to the third column in this demo.

Best wishes,

Your demo link did not work.  I believe you mean this demo:

http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#GridView/ColumnTypes

Although...in the above demo, the ID column with FirstName and LastName does not allow independent sort on FirstName and LastName.  How can I have a column header such as ID...yet allow the user to still sort by FirstName and LastName independently?

Thank you for your response!  :D

Hi Ryan,

Sorry - I've posted link to our WPF demo!

Indeed by default you cannot sort independently however you can add programmatically desired SortDescriptor(s) on desired UI element click.

Sincerely yours,
