Not saving my grid properties in VS designer

I have a GridGroupingControl on a form. This is bound to a typed DataSet. However, I want to simply change the header text for each column (it defaults to the dataset''s column name). So in the property editor (while in design mode for the form)... I go down to TableDescriptor->Columns->Column_xxx->HeaderText and set the property. It seems to work while I am there.. however, nothing is actually added to the code and if I close the form and come back, nothing is changed. Why is it not saving my changes?

What version are you using? I this both in and a later in-house version and did not see the problem.

Here is the sample I tried. \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\Grouping\HierarchyView\VB I first changed a header text on one of the columns in the existing grid. That seemed to persist through quiting the program and reloading it. I then added a second GridGroupingCOntrol to the form and set its DataSource to be the Orders table. I was able to change the header text there as well. Does this fail for you? You can check the version by opening the references node in the solution explorer window, clicking a SYncfusion reference, and then looking in the property window.

Okay my version is: I completely uninstalled the grid, then reinstalled. Mine was still not saving. I then went into the same sample you cited (albeit the C# version) and I can edit those headertext properties and close the form and they are properly persisted... so I do not know why it is not working in my project. I lastly simply went in.. removed all Syncfusion references from my project and then re-added them and it seems to be working. Go figure.
