After upgrade to 13.2.029 volume 2 pack last week( from, my grid's group column description is showing as empty. It used to show the "ColumnName: {Key} - {Count} Items", now its all empty. Is there any new flag I need to enable to make the group name show up again?

Here is the sample xaml I am using:

<syncfusion:SfDataGrid x:Name="datagrid" 
                     ColumnName="Name" />
                  MappingName="ID" />
                  MappingName="Score" />

Hi Vasanth,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

We have analyzed your query and we are regret to inform you that we are unable to reproduced the reported issue “Grid's group column description is showing as empty” on our end. In your code example you set the GroupColumnDescription for “Name” column, but you didn’t define the “Name” column in SfDataGrid.Columns. So could you please check on your end with this changes.

Please refer the sample in the following location we use for testing.

Sample Location: SfDataGridSample

If the issue is still reproduced in your end, please revert us the modified sample which replicates the issue that would be more helpful for us to serve you better.

Defining that column in the grid did the magic, thank you Farjana!
