    I have a grid with 5 columns.  If I drag a c column (say 4) to the group by box then the groups are shown.  If I try to expand the groupby box with the mouse, rowchanged event is triggered and then reading a value from a cell, I get a null exception error.  

    Once the group is expanded, and I click on a row, I need the row changed event to trigger.  


    also, can I show the number of items in each group.  Now it shows the group Text, but I want to show the group text and count in the group.


    Thanks as always

    Hello, Claude,   

    I would like to note that RadGridView offers the GroupExpanded event. It is fired when a group row is being expanded. However, you should know that the group rows (GridViewGroupRowInfo) doesn't store cells' values. That is why you probably experience the error when you try to access a cell's value from a group row. The data rows (GridViewDataRowInfo) actually have cells with associated values.  
            private void radGridView1_CurrentRowChanged(object sender, CurrentRowChangedEventArgs e)
                if (e.CurrentRow!=null && (! (e.CurrentRow is GridViewGroupRowInfo)) && e.CurrentRow is GridViewDataRowInfo)
                    Console.WriteLine(e.CurrentRow.Cells["ProductName"].Value );
    You can add a Count aggregate to the GroupDescriptor in order to show how many records have within the group: 

    The GroupSummaryEvaluate event allows you to customize the text displayed in the group row and show the number of rows that meet certain criteria. Please refer to the following help article demonstrating a sample approach: 
    I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
