    Hi,

    We recently added row group functionality to our grids and we and our users are very happy with this.

    Only thing that bothers us is the drop functionality on the grouppanel. We have multiple issues/wishes to make the drop functionality of the grouppanel much more intuitive. Especially when the RadGrid is already grouped on multiple columns.

    1) Possiblity to drag the next column to group on the position/order where you want the grouping of the grid to come up with. E.g. drag the next column between the first and the second grouping column. 
    2) Related to this case, the drop marker indicated the new column to group will be added in front, but the column is added to the end of the grouped columns.

    3) The marker to indicate where the user will drop an existing grouping column is shown at the begin and the end of the group column connector between groups:

    3. a)  Except in front of the first group column. Can the same behaviour be added to the end of the last grouped column?
    3. b)  The drop indicator on the group column connector should not be shown at the side of the connector where the dragged column is at to inform the user nothing will happen/change when you drop it here.
    3. c)  Because the connector is very small it is not clear to new users where the column is dropped when it is dropped on the connector.

    All of these cases can be reproduced on the RadGrid Grouping demo on your site:

    Please let me know about possible solution to these items...

    Hello,

    Regarding the points listed in the ticket.

    1. Actually you should be able to reorder the groups by using drag and drop as you can see from this video.

    2. Indeed when adding a new group the drop marker indicates that the group will be added at the beginning whereas it actually is added at the end. If you want the marker to display at the end please log a feature request for this requirement so our developers can examine it and improve the control functionality.

    3.a - For this you can also log a feature request.

    3.b - I am experiencing difficulties understanding this requirement can you please send us a video illustrating it.

    3.c - This is the current design of the control. If you would like from us to change its visual appearance I again suggest logging a feature request.

    Hi Angel,

    Thanks for your reply on my post.

    I will explain the unclear item in more detail:

    1. I ment adding a new, not grouped yet, column to the grouppanel. It is not possible to add it at a specific location.

    3.b I attached a video to explain my issue.

    Hello Erik,

    You are correct, both of the mentioned are present in the current implementation. Since this is the design behavior I recommend opening a feature request(if you haven't). If the features prove commonly requested our developers may integrate them in a future release.
