Hello,

There is an issue that users don't want to see the field alias in group header.
I tried to set it as "FieldAlias = ' '",  but it raised an error.
The error message is "Field definition is not valid. FieldAlias contains invalid characters"
Is it possible to reslove my issue? Thanks ahead.

Best regards
Chenghan

Hello Chenghan,

The FieldAlias value cannot contain blanks or reserved characters such as ",", "." and so on. This property is useful only when you want to change the value displayed in group header (different than the default DataField column value) or group by a template column and Telerik RadGrid cannot get the header text for that column. So for your scenario, you can consider customizing the groupheader text as shown below:

c#:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e) 
    { 
        if(e.Item is GridGroupHeaderItem) 
        { 
            GridGroupHeaderItem item = (GridGroupHeaderItem)e.Item;             
            string[] myArr = item.DataCell.Text.Split(':');             
            item.DataCell.Text = myArr[1].Trim(); 
        } 
    }         

Thanks
Princy.
