Hi,

I heard that there is a limitation with Rad Grid grouping when the header text of the column bound to the grid has a white space in it. For Eg: If the header text of a particular column is "Company Name", then on dragging the column header to perform grouping, an error was thrown. Reason is, it is grouping the column with name "Company" instead of  "Company Name".
I raised a forum earlier also regarding the same. I got reply that this was the limitation with Rad Grid and will be solved soon.
Was this problem solved in any of the latest release for Rad Controls?

Thanks,
Nataraj

Hi Nataraj,

The header text can contain space characters. To important thing is to have no spaces in the datafiled name to which the control is bound. Thus, you can have:

.aspx
<telerik:GridBoundColumn   
 DataField="SupplierID"   
 HeaderText="Supplier  ID"   
 SortExpression="SupplierID" 
 UniqueName="SupplierID">  
</telerik:GridBoundColumn>     

I hope this helps.

Hi Yavor,

Thanks for the reply. But can i use the method that you have suggested if the rad grid is bound to a dataset with "AutoGenerateColumns" property set to true?

Thanks,
Nataraj

Hi Nataraj,

You can use ColumnCreated event to get reference to the column using e.Column and change desired properties.
