Hi, Currently I am setting the DataSource of a GroupingGrid to a Datatable and trying to do the grouping based on a number of columns(based on 3 columns of each rows). I am setting those three columns to GridGroupingControl.TableDescriptor.GroupedColumns property of the control. But, what is happening is that when the second and third grouping fields are empty on a particular row, it is creating empty grouping for second and third level and adding those rows (records) under that hierarchy. But, what I want in that situation is that simply drop those rows under the first level of grouping without creating second and third empty groupings. I am wondering whether there is a property I can set in the grouping grid control to do that to customise the grouping mechanism or can I override a method in the grouping grid to do that. Thanks in advance, Siva.

I can drop a screen shot to describe this if that helps, Thanks,

Also, the groupings are currently based on the alphabetical order. Can we change the ordering based on a custom ordering?

Alternatively, can we hide the empty grouping heading rows?

Here is a sample that shows how you can not display the group caption row if the group only a few members. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/ConditonalCaptions_1e92005a.zip To do custom sorting or grouping, you can use a custom categorizer. Here are some links to forum threads that have samples in them. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=15751 http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=26206
