Hi All

I am creating a new grid and using the RadGrid grouping facilities. My Grid is displaying what i need but i would like some advice on how to format the GroupHeader, I was able to set font etc but I would like to have equal spacing between the Titles etc.. I have attached the grid to show what it currently looks like. 

Thanks

Thanks that was helpful. I have another grouping issue on a similar table.

Working on a similar grid with two levels of grouping, I have an issue with the second level GroupHeader element when I have a select field sum aggregate.  For every first row on the second grouping does not show the sum aggregate just {0}, all other rows show as expected. N.B When select field for second expression has not aggregate it groups as expected.

The attached file shows I would expect  first row on "Toyota" to be [Location]Toyota; NumberOfEnquiries3 (N.B, [Location] is blanked out on row below), Row 2 is correct. This is replicated on all first rows of second grouping. Any advice greatly appreciated.

<telerik:GridGroupByExpression>
                           <SelectFields>
                               <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldAlias="Franchise" FieldName="RootLevel" FormatString=""
                                   HeaderText=" " />
                               <telerik:GridGroupByField Aggregate="Sum" FieldAlias="NumberOfEnquiries" FieldName="NumberOfEnquiries"
                                   FormatString="" HeaderText=" " />
                               <telerik:GridGroupByField Aggregate="Sum" FieldAlias="NumberOfQuotes" FieldName="NumberOfQuotes"
                                   FormatString="" HeaderText=" " />
                               <telerik:GridGroupByField Aggregate="Sum" FieldAlias="NumberOfOrders" FieldName="NumberOfOrders"
                                   FormatString="" HeaderText=" " />
                           </SelectFields>
                           <GroupByFields>
                               <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldAlias="RootLevel" FieldName="RootLevel" FormatString=""
                                   HeaderText=" " SortOrder="None" />
                           </GroupByFields>
                       </telerik:GridGroupByExpression>
                       <telerik:GridGroupByExpression>
                           <SelectFields>
                               <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldAlias="Branch" FieldName="SubLevel1" FormatString=""
                                   HeaderText=" " />
                               <telerik:GridGroupByField Aggregate="Sum" FieldName="NumberOfEnquiries" FieldAlias="NumberOfEnquiries"
                                   HeaderValueSeparator="" HeaderText="" />
                           </SelectFields>
                           <GroupByFields>
                               <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldAlias="SubLevel1" FieldName="SubLevel1" FormatString=""
                                   HeaderText="" />
                           </GroupByFields>
                       </telerik:GridGroupByExpression>
                   </GroupByExpressions>

Hi Stuart,

Have you tried removing the empty FormatString settings? Are they set this way for a reason?

Hi

I changed the FormatStrings to FormatString= {0} and this has solved the totals issue in the header. For formatting the GroupHeaders I used the Pre Render method of the grid to mathc the layout of the columns.

Thanks
Stuart
