    My grid is grouping FirstName, LastName Grade just fine. However it is puttng a ";" inbetween each column value in the group item row.
    Example: Michel; Hobbs; Grade:2
    I need it to be Michael Hobbs  Grade:2 without the ";".

    Is there any way to turn off the ";" so it doesn't show?

    Hi Mike,

    I am new to Telerik but had a recent task that was similar and solved it using the ItemDataBound event.  In this case my Group Headers were showing values such as "CountryName : Austrailia", "CountryName : United States", etc.  Below is how the code was formatted :

    protected void grdMenuItems_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)  
            GridGroupHeaderItem groupHeaderItem = null;  
            GridTableCell groupTableCell = null;  
            string rawHeaderValue = string.Empty;  
            if ( e.Item is GridGroupHeaderItem )  
                groupHeaderItem = (GridGroupHeaderItem) e.Item;  
                groupTableCell = (GridTableCell) groupHeaderItem.DataCell;  
                groupTableCell.Text = ParseCountryName(groupTableCell.Text);  

    private string ParseCountryName(string rawHeader)  
      return rawHeader.Remove(0, 13);   

    Hope that helps. :)

    Hi Mike,

    You can also try setting the GroupByFieldsSeparator property in the GroupSettings to achieve the desired scenario.

      <GroupingSettings GroupByFieldsSeparator="  "  />

    Can anyone from Telerik confirm that GroupByFieldsSeparator still works as expected? I tried setting it to a space, empty string and &nbsp; none of which worked and the color still appears in the header.

    Hello Sam,

    I've created a sample RadGrid web site to demonstrate that the property works as expected. Please run the attached application and let me know about the result.
