Hi Cosyspro, 

Thank you for using Syncfusion products 

You can customize column appearance of a Grid Grouping control by using plug-in utility called Field Chooser as like in SfDataGrid. FieldChooser class can be associated with Grid Grouping control to add or remove columns from the grid.  
Code[C#] 
FieldChooser fieldChooser = new FieldChooser(this.gridGroupingControl1)} 


Please let us know if this helps also need any further assistance on this.

Hi Arulraj 
Thank you for response. It's work fine.

I have other questions :
1) Why chooser window to hide/display columns does't resize using mouse?
2) Why the Grid Grouping Control display is slow without data source (empty data) ?
3) How to use virtual mode to display big data ?

Best Regards

Hi Cosyspro, 

Thanks for your update.

Why chooser window to hide/display columns does't resize using mouse? 
GridGroupingControl does not have the support to resize the FieldChooser dialog. The size is fixed. If you use more number columns, scrollbar will be enabled in FieldChooser dialog. 
Why the Grid Grouping Control display is slow without data source (empty data) ? 
We have tried to bind the datasource with empty data but there is no performance issue occurs. So, we suspect that this issue may occur based on your customization. So, if it is possible please provide your customization or let us know the below attached sample differ from your customization. 

How to use virtual mode to display big data ? 
GridGroupingControl does not have the support for VirtualGrid. 

Note: 
Our newly implemented SfDataGrid does have all your requested support. So, we would like to suggest to use our newly implemented SfDataGrid. It provides a better performance compare than GridGroupingControl.   
  
You can find the feature comparison between the GridGroupingControl and the SfDataGrid from the following link.   
   
Please refer to the following UG’s for working with SfDataGrid.
