is it possible to set the background color of a GGC to transparency? I always get an error if I want to set the background color to ''transparency'' in the property window.

Thank you for any tips.

Hi Karsten,

By default the GridGroupingControl does not support the Transparent backcolor. But you can derive the GridGroupingControl and set a style property in the constructor to enable this.

public class MyGrid : GridGroupingControl
public MyGrid : base()
this.SetStyle(ControlStyles.SupportsTransparentBackColor, true);

Let us know if this helps.
