Hi Officemate Public Company Limited,

Thank you for your question.

RadGridView currently does not support merging cells. We are working on this feature and we will support rowspan and colspan in our next release.

Hello Ferry v.d. Graaf,

We support cell and row merge in html view mode only. Basically you can define your table like an html table and import it in RadGridView. Please find more details in this blog article. There is also an example in our demo application. The table view is record based and rows can't be merged. Please specify the exact look that you want to achieve and I will be glad to help further. 

Sincerely yours,
Jack

It seems like this has been requested for the past 4 years, since 2008.  Should we consider this a abonded issue and move on?

Thank you,

Joe

Hello Joe,

Presently, you can achieve cell merge using the Html definition. You can read more about it in the online documentation. Notice that there are some limitations that do not allow merging cells that have the same value.

Kind regards,

Hello Mr Been,

Thank you for writing.

A common question regarding RadGridView is whether it supports merging cells. RadGridView Merge Cells KB article aims to answer this question in details.

I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

The HtmlView definition allows me to merge cells in all records of my grid.

But how can I merge only two specifics cells inside one specific row in the middle of the grid values?

Hello, Rodrigo Cesar,    

By design, RadGridView doesn't support merging cells. The following Knowledge Base article demonstrates in details how you can achieve it: https://www.telerik.com/support/kb/winforms/gridview/details/radgridview-merge-celss

HtmlViewDefinition allows you to specify RowSpan/ColSpan properties but this will affect all rows in the grid because the view definition specifies the row template that has be applied. It is not possible to apply RowSpan/ColSpan only for a specific row. You can use the styling capabilities of the grid to hide the borders between the cells in order to visually display the cells as merged. This is the third approach that is demonstrated in the referred KB article. 

I hope this information helps. If you have any additional questions, please let me know.  
 
Regards,
Dess
