Hello all,
I have a field I need to group by in the RadGrid ("TypeId"), but I wish to display a different field as the "group name". This field is "Type Name" (note the space).

Is this possible? ie, groupBy = TypeId, display = Type Name

If I can't display a different column heading to the group-by field that's fine, the main thing is I need to be able to group by a field that contains a [space]. I'm dealing with legacy, deployed code, so I can't go changing the stored procs!

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,
DT

As a work-around I have "cleaned-up" my datatable. ie, I loop through the column names and remove any spaces.

In true OO I wouldn't have this problem anyway, since I'd be binding to an object and not a DataTable directly, but this is RAD and there's not the time for creating objects for every single sproc!

Hope this helps anyone else with a similar problem.

here is a tip for anyone else trying to make grid groupbyexpressions which have spaces in the name...

I had tried using %20 (which just shows up as the literal "%20")
I had tried using &space; (which excepted on "invalid characters")

Finally, i figured out how to get actual spaces in the name of a group by expression...
go into charmap, and select out U+00A0, "No-Break Space", copy it and past it in the name of your group by expression in place of the standard space.

Works like a charm for both IE7 and FF3rc1!
