Hello

Is is possible to set up the grid grouping expressions so that they group the rows in a grid based on just the date (and not the time) of a column of type Date?

I presume one option will be to solve the problem at the actual data source by creating a view which returned an extra column containing only the date part of the date/time data. I could then group on this field.

Is there any way I can achieve this with the grid itself?

thanks

You may go through the  following forum link which discusses a similar requirement.

Hi

Thanks for the link but it didn't help. There is a solution through that link which involves manipulating the database directly which is what I suggested in my original post. I was wondering if the radgrid could do this directly but perhaps not.

thanks

Hello andieje,

Unfortunately, the control cannot handle this behavior automatically, since it groups on the database level.
Thus, you can either separate the data in the database, or come up with an intermediate helper class, which will be bound to the grid, and handle this separation.
