Hi,
I'm using the RadGrid from prometheus Q3 2007. What I want to do is to add a row in the header of the grid to group the colomuns. Exemple:

<table>
<tr>
    <td colspan="2">group1</td>
    <td colspan="2">group2</td>
</tr>
... Followed by the standart header, assuming that my grid has 4 columns...

I'm creating my grid programmatically and adding it to a placeholder like the exemple showed here in the section "Creating ItemTemplate/EditItemTemplate of GridTemplateColumn programmatically".

I' using visual studio 2008, framework 3.5.

Thanks,

Pascal.

Hi Pascal,

I suggest you take advantage of the grouping feature exposed by RadGrid Prometheus:

http://www.telerik.com/DEMOS/ASPNET/Prometheus/Grid/Examples/GroupBy/OutlookStyle/DefaultCS.aspx

How to define group expressions statically or programmatically in code you can learn from these documentation articles:

I'm also interested in the same header layout as Pascal. Please take a look at the following image. I want to have days as "groups" and details for each day under the day name.

Is this possible with the current version of RadGrid?

Regards
Kenneth

I think that the Telerik Scheduling component will be more appropriate for this purpose (judging from the screenshot you pointed). Take a look at its online demos to see whether it suits your needs:

The image attached was just an example and no, I'm afraid that the time scheduler won't suit my needs. I want to have the grid (with it's functionality like editing, sorting, calculated columns, footers etc) but with two row headers...

Then consider Pascal's suggestion above in this thread or may be the new global item template feature will be suitable for you:

Just my  two cents here.
