DataGrid : Group Column


Hi everyone,

Can we group column in a DataGrid Header ?

For exemple :

HeaderA, HeaderB,HeaderC,

And the result of this with a DataGridView will be to have 2015 and 2016 under HeaderB but still in the header structure.

Can we do that ? :smile:


You can do this if you were to write “HeaderA \r2015, HeaderB \r2016” making use of the \r notation of new line.

Does that help or have I misunderstood?


Thanks for the assist @Dan, that was fast! :smile:

Please let us know if you look any anything different @Rhend, we’re here to help!



Thanks for the fast reply ! But sadly this not solve my problem. I give you my GridView “Code” to explain better :smile:

Rubriques, Taux salarial,Taux Patronal,Soumis CSG,Taux soumis CSG
AGFF /A,0.800,<à remplir>,1.200,<à remplir>,[x],0.850
AGFF /B,0.900,<à remplir>,1.300,<à remplir>,[]

Values 2015 and 2016 have to be under “Taux Salarial” AND “Taux Patronal” (Excuse my French :smiley:) in two separate column. It’s like making a HTML Table with a rowspan=2 for Taux Salarial and Taux Patronal



Ah I see. Unfortunately that isn’t possible. As someone who also uses the grid a lot of mock ups I would also support this feature as it is something that I currently have to just mock up a place holder table and then refer people to a more detailed Excel based mock up later.

@Virgin - it would be nice if there was a community facing feature tracking system where can request/search things easier. I have quite a lot of things that I would love the grid to be able to do in order for me to produce effective mock ups.


@Dan :

Ok, thanks for the reply. My workaround work for me it’s just not pretty ^^

Thanks !
