Hide expandable group header


I'm grouping the data like the documentation says:

           <Syncfusion:SfDataGrid.GroupColumnDescriptions >
                <Syncfusion:GroupColumnDescription ColumnName="MyRowId"  />

It's working fine but it's not completely what I'm looking for.

This piece of code makes the view of the datagrid richer with an expandable row which can be clicked to show the grouped data (or AutoExpandGroups on control).

Is there a way to hide the expandable group row? So it is always automatically expanded and that this expandable row is not visible?

Hi Erik, 

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 

You can able to hide the expander row(Caption Summary Row) by handling the QueryRowHeight event of SfDataGrid as like the below codes. 

Code Snippet

this.sfGrid.QueryRowHeight += SfGrid_QueryRowHeight; 
private void SfGrid_QueryRowHeight(object sender, QueryRowHeightEventArgs e) 
    var groupRow = (sfGrid.RowGenerator.Items.FirstOrDefault(x => x.RowIndex == e.RowIndex && (x.RowType == RowType.SummaryRow || x.RowType == RowType.SummaryCoveredRow 
    || x.RowType == RowType.CaptionCoveredRow || x.RowType == RowType.CaptionRow))); 
    if (groupRow != null) 
        e.Height = 0; 
        e.Handled = true; 

If your requirement is different from this, could you please share some more information about your requirement clearly ?.  This would be more helpful for us to proceed further.
