Hi,

 

i just need to group a Grid column which in fact is a check box column. It contains only checked/unchecked boxes, and i want to allow them to be grouped. Here is my part of the code. Btw, some time ago, i figured it out, but cant remember now :(

 

<Columns>
     <telerik:GridTemplateColumn UniqueName="cbDonorUniqueSelect" HeaderText="SelectAll" AllowFiltering="false" Groupable="True" ShowFilterIcon="false" HeaderStyle-Width="30px">
          <HeaderTemplate>
                <asp:CheckBox ID="cbCheckAllDonors" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True" OnCheckedChanged="cbCheckAllDonors_CheckedChanged" SkinID="" />
          </HeaderTemplate>
          <ItemTemplate>
                 <asp:CheckBox ID="cbSelectDonor" runat="server" OnCheckedChanged="cbSelectDonor_CheckedChange"/>
          </ItemTemplate>
</telerik:GridTemplateColumn>
</Columns>‚Äč

Hi Adnan,

In order for RadGrid to group the data it uses the values for a given field in the data source. However, the template column you are trying to group by does not seem to be bound to a data source field. It displays only CheckBoxes. In that case there are no values the grid can use to perform the grouping.

You can bind the checkbox column to a boolean field in the data source. This way the data can be grouped cased on the value for the field in the data source.
