Hi,

I have a project in which I am trying to support merged cells for all columns. I notice however that a CheckBox Column doesn't fully support this feature inasmuch as a GridView always displays the values True or False in text form across merged cells (or in my case "1" or "0").

I thought this was an oversight by me but I noticed it in the documentation here where the IsMarried column is shown.

 

Is this the intended design or does Telerik plan to change this? Personally I would prefer the merged cell also to display a CheckBox.

 

Many thanks.

Miles Young

Hello Miles,

Thank you for the referenced article. 

Indeed the observed behavior of merged cells in a checkbox column is the intended one. Currently we do not have plans of changing it. 

That said, you can achieve the desired result with the help of a MergedCellsStyleSelector. You can create a custom style for the GridViewMergedCells with a CheckBox in its ContentTemplate and apply it to merged cells with a boolean value. I am attaching a sample project demonstrating this approach for your reference.

I hope you find this helpful.
