Indentations in caption summary row

When I create totals in CaptionSymmaryRow, I have no indentation:

But after export to pdf i see:

It's possible to see indentations on grid too?

In my scenario

#1 Load Data To Grid

#2 Add grouping:

For i = 0 To For i = 0 To jconfig.SizeOfArray("Columns") - 1
	jconfig.I = i
	grid.GroupColumnDescriptions.Add(New GroupColumnDescription() With {
										 .ColumnName = jconfig.StringOf("Columns[i].srcfield"),
										 .SortGroupRecords = True}

# add totals:

Dim captionSummaryRow As New GridSummaryRow With {
	.Name = "CaptionSummary",
	.ShowSummaryInRow = False,
	.Title = "{Key}",
	.TitleColumnCount = 1
Dim tableSummaryRow As New GridTableSummaryRow With {
	.Name = "TableSummary1",
	.ShowSummaryInRow = False,
	.Position = VerticalPosition.Top
Dim i As Integer
Dim st As GridSummaryColumn
Dim f As StringBuilder
Dim go As Boolean = False

For i = 0 To jconfig.SizeOfArray("Columns") - 1
	jconfig.I = i
	st = New GridSummaryColumn
	'code to genrate GridSummaryColumn

grid.CaptionSummaryRow = captionSummaryRow

The result:

I need two changes:

FIRST : I set up backcolor for caption summary row:

But as see on screenshot, when

.ShowSummaryInRow = False

The back color is white


I want to add borders in caption summary row.

I add handler OnDrawCell:

If (e.DataRow.RowType = RowType.CaptionRow Or e.DataRow.RowType = RowType.TableSummaryRow) Then
	Dim Format = New StringFormat()
	Dim DrawingHelper = New DrawingHelper()
	e.Style.Font.Bold = True
	Select Case e.Column.CellType
		Case "Numeric"
			e.Style.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Right
		Case "TextBox"
			e.Style.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left
		Case Else
			e.Style.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center
	End Select
	'Algin "ident" column to left
	With e.OriginalSender
		If .Columns(.CaptionSummaryRow.TitleColumnCount - 1).MappingName = e.Column.MappingName Then
			e.Style.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left
		End If
	End With

	Dim ha = DrawingHelper.GetType().GetMethod("ConvertToStringAlignment", BindingFlags.NonPublic Or BindingFlags.Static, Type.DefaultBinder, New Type() {GetType(HorizontalAlignment)}, New ParameterModifier() {}).Invoke(DrawingHelper, New Object() {e.Style.HorizontalAlignment})
	Dim va = DrawingHelper.GetType().GetMethod("ConvertToStringAlignment", BindingFlags.NonPublic Or BindingFlags.Static, Type.DefaultBinder, New Type() {GetType(VerticalAlignment)}, New ParameterModifier() {}).Invoke(DrawingHelper, New Object() {e.Style.VerticalAlignment})
	Format.Alignment = CType(ha, StringAlignment)
	Format.LineAlignment = CType(va, StringAlignment)
	e.Graphics.FillRectangle(New SolidBrush(e.Style.BackColor), e.Bounds)
	e.Graphics.FillRectangle(New SolidBrush(GridGroupColor), e.Bounds)
	e.Graphics.DrawString(e.DisplayText, e.Style.GetFont(), New SolidBrush(e.Style.TextColor), e.Bounds, Format)
	e.Graphics.DrawLine(New Pen(e.Style.Borders.Right.Color), e.Bounds.Right - 1, e.Bounds.Top, e.Bounds.Right - 1, e.Bounds.Bottom)
	e.Graphics.DrawLine(New Pen(e.Style.Borders.Bottom.Color), e.Bounds.Left, e.Bounds.Bottom - 1, e.Bounds.Right, e.Bounds.Bottom - 1)
	'Handling the event 
	e.Handled = True
End If


Almost perfect, except for the backcolor in "ident cells" and ident/merge column Nr pozycji with ident cells.

My users mostly have a lot of rows, so they what to see total for each group after colapse:

and on the print (after exporting to pdf:

Ideally for me, with ShowSummaryInRow disabled, the grid would merge the first column with indent columns and display the caption in it

We are currently checking possibilities to achieve your requirement from our end.  We will update with further details on November 11, 2022.

I found error in my code, I changed backcolor in QueryRowStyle.

Indentations are very important to me because they significantly increase the readability of the grid.
