Merging column headers in an SfDataGrid


I'm trying to merge some of the header cells in an SfDataGrid control.  Please see the below mockup which demonstrates what I'm trying to do (specifically "Column 3").  Is this possible?  Thanks.

Hi Cameron,
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.
We have analyzed your query and you can achieve your requirement by using StackedHeaders in SfDataGrid to merge the column headers as you mentioned in the snapshot.
Please refer the below code example to create the StackedHeaders in SfDataGrid


                <Syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="name"/>

                <Syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="A"/>

                <Syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="B"/>

                <Syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="C"/>

                <Syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="D"/>

                <Syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="E"/>

                <Syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="F"/>

                <Syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="G"/>





                        <Syncfusion:StackedColumn  ChildColumns="D,E,F" HeaderText="Columns"></Syncfusion:StackedColumn>




We have prepared the sample based on your requirement and please find the sample from the following location:
Please let us know if you have any query.

Is this feature in Xamarin.iOS as well?

Hi Kevin, 
Currently we don’t have support for “StackedHeaders” in our SfDataGrid (Xamarin platform). A support incident to track the status of this feature has been created under your account. Please log on to our support website to check for further updates:

Hi Chonlada,   
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.   
We are sorry to let you know that currently we do not have support to merge column headers. We have already considered the “Provide support for StackedHeader in SfDataGrid” as feature and added it to our feature request list. It will be available in any of our upcoming releases and it can be tracked through our Features Management System in the support ticket 213385. 
Please let us know if you require further assistance.
