    Hi there,

    I am using  GroupDescriptors for gruoping the rows in grid. I am facing a problem when removing the columns runtime from the grid. Here is steps what I do.

    1. Load the grid with some data on constructor itself.
    2. On click of "Refresh" button, 
        a. Remove the columns. 
        b. Add the same columns (loaded on first load) again. 
        c. Change the ItemsSource.
        d. Clear the group-desciptor and 
        e. Add the same group-desciptor again.

    If the above steps are follow, the aggregated function(s) is not working as expect. It shows the Count value (in this case) first time but it doesn't show any value if Refresh is clicked.

    Can anyone please look at the problem and provide the solution? Here is the code snippet.

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Net;
    using System.Windows;
    using System.Windows.Controls;
    using System.Windows.Documents;
    using System.Windows.Input;
    using System.Windows.Media;
    using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
    using System.Windows.Shapes;
    using System.Windows.Data;
    using Telerik.Windows.Data;
    using Telerik.Windows.Controls;
    namespace SumFunction_RunTime
        public partial class MainPage : UserControl
            public MainPage()
                //Get random data
                gridView.ItemsSource = Club.GetClubs(01);
                var newColumn = new CustomGridColumn() { 
                    DataMemberBinding = new Binding("StadiumCapacity"), 
                    UniqueName = "Capacity_RunTime",
                    Header = "Capacity column created runtime"
                CountFunction sumFunc = new CountFunction() { Caption = "Count" };
                //Add Count Aggregated Function
                Telerik.Windows.Data.GroupDescriptor oGD = new Telerik.Windows.Data.GroupDescriptor();
                oGD.Member = "Name";
            private int clickNumber = 0;
            private void btnRefresh_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                GridViewDataColumn column = new GridViewDataColumn();
                column.DataMemberBinding = new Binding("Name");
                column.Header = "Name";
                column = new GridViewDataColumn();
                column.DataMemberBinding = new Binding("Established");
                column.Header = "Established";
                column = new GridViewDataColumn();
                column.DataMemberBinding = new Binding("StadiumCapacity");
                column.Header = "StadiumCapacity";
                //Get Random Data
                gridView.ItemsSource = Club.GetClubs(clickNumber);
                clickNumber ++;
                if (clickNumber >= 4)
                    clickNumber = 0;
                //bool desciptorFound = false;
                //foreach (GroupDescriptor itemGD in this.gridView.GroupDescriptors)
                //    if (itemGD.Member == "Name")
                //        desciptorFound = true;
                Telerik.Windows.Data.GroupDescriptor oGD = new Telerik.Windows.Data.GroupDescriptor();
                oGD.Member = "Name";

    Hi Maulik Patel,

    In the constructor you add  an aggregate function such as :


    So newColumn has an aggregate function and it displays it correctly.

    In the btnRefresh_Click method you have :

    as expected - this removes the newColumn with the aggregate function itselft.

    Logically after that - we do not have any aggregate functions and we do not see any aggregate results.

    As a solution:
    n the body of the btnRefresh_Click method, please add an aggregate function to the newly created columns.
