Can not change the editor type and the group at the same time.

Hello,

When using event to customize a DataForm, we can not change the editor type and the group at the same time

in the code example below DataFormItem can not be the MultilineText and belong to Group Details.

Line of code    e.DataFormItem.Editor = "MultilineText";  hide the Details group. It's really strange.


  private void DataForm_AutoGeneratingDataFormItem(object sender, AutoGeneratingDataFormItemEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.DataFormItem != null)
            {
                if (e.DataFormItem.Name == "Code" || e.DataFormItem.Name == "Name")
                    e.DataFormItem.GroupName = "General";
                else
                {
                    e.DataFormItem.GroupName = "Details";
                    e.DataFormItem.Editor = "MultilineText";
                }
                    
            }
        }

Hi Tung, 
 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
 
Based on the shared information we have checked the reported issue “Cannot change GroupName and Editor of DataFormItem at same”. If you provide DataFormItem GroupName it will be added into DataFormGroupItems so you need to change editor of DataFormItem inside DataFormGroupItem.   
 
Please refer the following code example for the same, 
  
[C#]      
  
private void DataForm_AutoGeneratingDataFormItem(object sender, AutoGeneratingDataFormItemEventArgs e) 
        { 
            if (e.DataFormItem != null) 
            { 
                if (e.DataFormItem.Name == "Code" || e.DataFormItem.Name == "Name") 
                    e.DataFormItem.GroupName = "General"; 
                else 
                { 
                    e.DataFormItem.GroupName = "Details"; 
                } 
 
            } 
            if(e.DataFormGroupItem != null && e.DataFormGroupItem.GroupName == "Details") 
            { 
                foreach (var item in e.DataFormGroupItem.DataFormItems) 
                    (item as DataFormItem).Editor = "MultilineText"; 
            } 
        } 
 
 
We have prepared a sample based on your requirement, please find the sample by the following link.
