Group cells; how to show with no special style at all

I''d like my group caption rows to show up with no special back-color formatting or tab-like roll-overs, but still to retain the +- icon. I.e. they should appear just like any other cell in the grid. What''s the best way?? Thanks, D.

The best that I''ve managed is: this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Appearance.GroupCaptionCell.CellType = "EmptyCell"; This really, nearly works! The group caption cell(s) is/are drawn with the same back and forecolor as the other cells, but there''s a _single pixel_ line drawn at the TOP of the group caption cell(s). That really, really sucks. Any way around that? D. >I''d like my group caption rows to show up with no special back-color formatting or tab-like roll-overs, but still to retain the +- icon.

Hi Domininc, the default settings are as follows: // Group Caption style = GroupCaptionCell; style.Borders.Top = new GridBorder(GridBorderStyle.Solid, SystemColors.ControlDarkDark); style.BackColor = SystemColors.Control; style.CellType = "Header"; // Group Caption PlusMinus style = GroupCaptionPlusMinusCell; style.Borders.Bottom = GridBorder.Empty; style.Borders.Top = new GridBorder(GridBorderStyle.Solid, SystemColors.Control); style.CellType = "PushButton"; style.Enabled = true; So what you could do is get rid of those settings for by calling GridTableCellStyleInfo style = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Appearance.GroupCaptionCell; style.ResetBorders(); style.ResetInterior(); style.CellType = "Static"; Stefan

Thanks Stefan, I''ve tried that, but unfortunately, the single pixel line on the top of the cell remains. :( Not the end of the world, but a shame. Another question I''m struggling with at the moment is how to specify the height of each row; the group caption row is currently slightly taller than the main data rows, and it looks a bit wrong. But I can''t find anything in the object model to do this... The attached screenshot hopefully demonstrates both issues. Thanks again for your help.

Ah! Solved the border issue: GridTableCellStyleInfo style = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Appearance.GroupCaptionCell; style.Borders.Top = new GridBorder( GridBorderStyle.None ); However, the different height rows problem remains... :( D. >Thanks Stefan, > >I''ve tried that, but unfortunately, the single pixel line on the top of the cell remains. :( > >Not the end of the world, but a shame. > >Another question I''m struggling with at the moment is how to specify the height of each row; the group caption row is currently slightly taller than the main data rows, and it looks a bit wrong.

Correction. You need to do this: this.gridGroupingControl1.Appearance.GroupCaptionCell.BackColor = this.gridGroupingControl1.Appearance.RecordFieldCell.BackColor; this.gridGroupingControl1.Appearance.GroupCaptionCell.Borders.Top = new GridBorder(GridBorderStyle.Standard); this.gridGroupingControl1.Appearance.GroupCaptionCell.CellType = "Static"; Stefan

Regarding the row height, do this: this.gridGroupingControl1.TableOptions.CaptionRowHeight = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableOptions.RecordRowHeight; Stefan

Thanks Stefan, trying that now... D. >Regarding the row height, do this: > > > this.gridGroupingControl1.TableOptions.CaptionRowHeight = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableOptions.RecordRowHeight; > > > >Stefan >

Perfect! Thanks Stefan. D. >Thanks Stefan, trying that now... >D. > >>Regarding the row height, do this: >> >> >> this.gridGroupingControl1.TableOptions.CaptionRowHeight = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableOptions.RecordRowHeight; >> >> >> >>Stefan >>
