hi,
this is ok in version 924 ,the code as follows:
List<string> groupColumns = new List<string>();
 
              foreach (GroupDescriptor group in dataGrid.GroupDescriptors)
              {
                  if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(columnaList))
                  {
                      columnaList += "," + group.Member;
                  }
                  else
                  {
                      columnaList += group.Member;
                  }
                  groupColumns.Add(group.Member);
              }


upgraded q3,  throw exception message: 
Unable to cast object of type 'Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.ColumnGroupDescriptor' to type 'Telerik.Windows.Data.GroupDescriptor'.

since 924 is ok.
Do not understand


we have other code for it. load GroupDescriptor for save data.

GroupDescriptor descriptor = new GroupDescriptor();
 if (pair.Key == "SecID")
 {
     CountFunction countFunction = new CountFunction { Caption = "Count:" };
     holdingColumn.FooterTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Left;
 
     holdingColumn.AggregateFunctions.Add(countFunction);
     descriptor.AggregateFunctions.Add(countFunction);
 }

then  so  to do..    add  descriptor  to datagrid

if (groupByData.ContainsKey(SelectedTabIndexer))
            {
                if (groupByData[SelectedTabIndexer].Contains(columnName))
                {
                    descriptor.Member = columnName;
                    descriptor.DisplayContent = displaycontent;
                    SelectedDataGrid.GroupDescriptors.Add(descriptor);
                }
            }

OK,  SelectedDataGrid.GroupDescriptors.Count() > 0 
if changed code use ColumnGroupDescriptor  :

foreach (ColumnGroupDescriptor group in dataGrid.GroupDescriptors)
{
    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(columnaList))
    {
        columnaList += "," + group.Column.UniqueName;
    }
    else
    {
        columnaList += group.Column.UniqueName;
    }
    groupColumns.Add(group.Column.UniqueName);
}
 
throw exception message:
Unable to cast object of type 'Telerik.Windows.Data.GroupDescriptor' to type 'Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.ColumnGroupDescriptor'.

why ?  both  Telerik.Windows.Data.GroupDescriptor and  Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.ColumnGroupDescriptor  did not foreach?

any question?

thanks

Hello jerome,

 This happens because there appear to be both GroupDescriptors and ColumnGroupDescriptors in the GroupDescriptors collection of RadGridView. You need to use the OfType<> extension method (found in the System.Linq namespace) in order to filter the GroupDescriptors collection to only GroupDescriptors or ColumnGroupDescriptors.

Kind regards,

Hi I think I have same problem with my code when I updated new dll of telrik now it is not working please reply me.
My code is here

sortOptions.Add(gridView.GroupDescriptors);

 

 

 

 

public void Add(GroupDescriptorCollection groupDescriptorCollection)

 

 

{

 

 

 

foreach (GroupDescriptor groupDescriptor in groupDescriptorCollection) //gives error here

 

{

if(groupDescriptor.SortDirection == ListSortDirection.Ascending)

 

{

 

this.SortCriteriaList.Add(new SortCriteria(groupDescriptor.Member, SortOrder.Ascending));
}

 

 

 

 

else if (groupDescriptor.SortDirection == ListSortDirection.Descending)
{
this.SortCriteriaList.Add(new SortCriteria(groupDescriptor.Member, SortOrder.Descending));

 

 

}

 

 

 

 

}

}

it gives me error like
Unable to cast object of type 'Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.ColumnGroupDescriptor' to type 'Telerik.Windows.Data.GroupDescriptor'.

you can use code like  below:

foreach (ColumnGroupDescriptor group in dataGrid.GroupDescriptors.OfType<ColumnGroupDescriptor>())
            
foreach (GroupDescriptor group in dataGrid.GroupDescriptors.OfType<GroupDescriptor>())

Thanks you for your reply now my problem is solved.

I tried this
foreach (GroupDescriptor group in dataGrid.GroupDescriptors.OfType<GroupDescriptor>)

So I was getting error on foreach because I missed to place () {braket} at end.
foreach (GroupDescriptor group in dataGrid.GroupDescriptors.OfType<GroupDescriptor>())
