    Hello Team,

    is there any property to which could help me set the hide the expand/collapse icon of my rad pivot grid. 

    Note: am setting my rows and column field using server side code. ex:

     PivotGridColumnField columnField = new PivotGridColumnField();
                    columnField.DataField = name;
                    columnField.UniqueName = name;


    refer attachment for pivot grid.

    Hi Mohan,

    Hiding the expand/collapse icons can de done using CSS and override the base classes.

    For example, to hide them unconditionally at all times, you can use one of the following approaches.
        /* Hide only the expand icons */
        .RadPivotGrid .rpgRowHeader .rpgExpandIcon,
        .RadPivotGrid .rpgColumnHeader .rpgExpandIcon{
            display: none;
        /* Hide only the collapse icons */
        .RadPivotGrid .rpgRowHeader .rpgCollapseIcon,
        .RadPivotGrid .rpgColumnHeader .rpgCollapseIcon {
            display: none;
        /* Hide both collapse and expand icons */
        .RadPivotGrid .rpgRowHeader .rpgExpandIcon,
        .RadPivotGrid .rpgRowHeader .rpgCollapseIcon,
        .RadPivotGrid .rpgColumnHeader .rpgExpandIcon,
        .RadPivotGrid .rpgColumnHeader .rpgCollapseIcon {
            display: none;

    If you wish to hide the icons conditionally, you can assign a custom CSS class name to the fields, like the example below. (this can even be done programmatically if needed)
    <telerik:PivotGridRowField CellStyle-CssClass="noIcon">
    <telerik:PivotGridColumnField CellStyle-CssClass="noIcon">

    Then define the CSS class with the following rule:
        /* Conditional hiding with custom CSS class */
        .RadPivotGrid .noIcon .rpgExpandIcon,
        .RadPivotGrid .noIcon .rpgCollapseIcon {
            display: none;

    I hope this will prove helpful.

    Kind regards,
