Grouped column text

When I group by a column the group cell text is the column name (mappingname) rather than the header text. What''s up with that? Also, the column in question is a combobox and I would like the text in the group cell to use the display value from the combobox datasource rather than the column value. That is, rather than showing "TaskSource: 2 - 2 Items", I''d like it to show "Source: Planning - 2 Items". Any thoughts on how I accomplish this? BTW, here is how I''m setting up the column descriptor: GridColumnDescriptor gcd = new GridColumnDescriptor(); gcd.MappingName = "TaskSource"; gcd.HeaderText = "Source"; gcd.Appearance.AnyCell.CellType = "ComboBox"; gcd.Appearance.AnyCell.ShowButtons = GridShowButtons.Hide; gcd.Appearance.AnyCell.ExclusiveChoiceList = true; gcd.Appearance.AnyCell.DataSource = alSourceCodes; gcd.Appearance.AnyCell.DisplayMember = "Description" gcd.Appearance.AnyCell.ValueMember = "CodeID"

Here is a forum thread that shows how you can use QueryCellStyleInfo to customize the caption text. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=11530
