Is there a way to group the results in a RADGrid then hide the column that is being used to group the grid with?

For example, in the following demo: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/groupby/outlookstyle/defaultcs.aspx

The grouping is done using the Received column. What I want to be able to do is, keep the grouping but hide the Received column in the actual RADGrid and also hide the Header section of the RADGrid. Is this possible? Thanks!

Ok I was able to accomplish this by setting the grouping at design time and hiding the column that it's being grouped from on page load.

Another question, same demo:http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/groupby/outlookstyle/defaultcs.aspx

The header on each grouping shows the format "Received from date: {Date Here}" (see sample header below):

Received from date: Monday, March 28, 2005

What I want is to remove the portion of the header Received from date: and just keep the portion of the header that says March 28, 2005. Is this possible? Thanks!

Hello PJ,

Please try using the following code to implement the desired functionality:
ASPX
<GroupByExpressions>
    <telerik:GridGroupByExpression>
        <SelectFields>
            <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldName="Received" FieldAlias="Date" FormatString="{0:D}">
            </telerik:GridGroupByField>
        </SelectFields>
        <GroupByFields>
            <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldName="Received" FieldAlias="Date" SortOrder="Descending">
            </telerik:GridGroupByField>
        </GroupByFields>
    </telerik:GridGroupByExpression>
</GroupByExpressions>
C#
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Item is GridGroupHeaderItem)
    {
        GridGroupHeaderItem item = (GridGroupHeaderItem)e.Item;
        DataRowView groupDataRow = (DataRowView)e.Item.DataItem;
        item.DataCell.Text = item.DataCell.Text.Split(':')[1];
    }
}

I hope this helps.

All the best,
