I just rewrote the VitrualMergeCell sample to fit my needs, but I have one problem : works great for any cell except for the row header column. If I put duplicates consecutive rows anywhere but the first column, merge great, but if it''s in the first, it repeats without merging. Whats wrong?

I found something strange : when I set only Cols.HeaderCount = 0 the first columns won''t merge but if I add Cols.FrozenCount = 1 then it does merge, but I get a blue dotted line after the next column...

The sample seems to work ok for row headers. What did you change? Did you change this code? GridStyleInfo rowHeaderStyle = BaseStylesMap["Row Header"].StyleInfo; //rowHeaderStyle.CellType = "Static"; rowHeaderStyle.MergeCell = GridMergeCellDirection.RowsInColumn; which is where the merge is enabled on the row headers. Does this code get hit in your sample?

Yes, I have this code and it gets hit. The problem is that I do NOT want 3 frozen and 2 headers cols. Try it in your sample. Just change Cols.HeaderCount = 1 Cols.FrozenCount = 2 to Cols.HeaderCount = 0 Cols.FrozenCount = 0 Since the default header is still there and is frozen, it''s all that I need (esthetically I mean), but with this code, the first column doesn''t get merged.

Until I get an answer, I did this to fix the problem, but it is only a workaround (I still need an answer ;). Sadly this messes all my arithmetics and logics. Cols.HeaderCount = 1 Cols.FrozenCount = 1 ColHiddenEntries.Add(New GridColHidden(0))

After further investigation, I can see that OnQueryCellModel never gets called for col 0 (but it gets called for row 0). Any hints on why that is?

This is being looked into. It is not clear yet whether there was a necessary reason for not allowing this to work for the row header column though it is strange that setting FrozenCount = 1 does allow it to work. You can work around this issue using covered cells by adding an OnQueryCoveredRange override to CustonGridModel. Protected Overrides Sub OnQueryCoveredRange(ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridQueryCoveredRangeEventArgs) If e.ColIndex = 0 AndAlso e.RowIndex > Me.Rows.HeaderCount Then Dim top As Integer = e.RowIndex Dim val As Object = Me(e.RowIndex, e.ColIndex).CellValue While top > Me.Rows.HeaderCount AndAlso val.Equals(Me(top - 1, e.ColIndex).CellValue) top -= 1 End While Dim bot As Integer = e.RowIndex While bot < Me.RowCount AndAlso val.Equals(Me(bot + 1, e.ColIndex).CellValue) bot += 1 End While If bot <> top Then e.Range = GridRangeInfo.Cells(top, 0, bot, 0) e.Handled = True End If End If End Sub

This is a defect that has been corrected here in our code base.
