Hello,

I am using a GridView in my Silverlight application. When my user sorts the grid's data by dragging column heading(s) to the top I need to be able to access the value (or values) in Telerik.Windows.Data.AggregateFunctionsGroup ParentGroup. I need to use that value (or values) for populating a variable.

Or, to put it simply...when a user sorts the GridView I need to be able to grab the value(s) of what they sorted the grid by.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Sean Wright,
It is a bit confusing ,
are you talking about sorting or about grouping ?

Dragging the column header performs grouping and clicking on it performs sorting .
Please clarify so I can provide further assistance

Hi,

I apologize for the confusion; thanks for asking for clarification; let's see if I can provide it.

When the grid is grouped (via dragging one or more column headers) I need to be able to get the name (or names) of the column header(s) that the grid is being grouped by. So, if the "Estimate Code" and "Grade" column headers are used to group the grid, for example, I need to be able to get the values "Estimate Code" and "Grade."

Thanks again,

Sean

Hello Sean Wright,

Ok , you can subscribe to the RadGridView.Grouping and RadGridView.Grouped events.

Within the event handler you can check the value of

e.GroupDescriptor.Member

It should contain what you are looking for.

e.g If you group by "Grade" , within the event you will find e.GroupDescriptor.Member to be equal to "Grade" ..as needed.
