Iam using syncfusion 4.3 version, I got the following exception in GroupView control. This exception occurs occasionally, I cannot reproduce it regularly. Whenever an exception occurs a big red cross mark will be displayed. Any ideas/suggessions to resolve the problem. I have faced this problem with 4.3 version only with 4.2 version same code works fine.

System.Runtime.InteropServices.ExternalException: A generic error occurred in GDI+.

Hi Ravi,

Would it be possible for you to provide us the Windows Form Designer generated code snippet for this GroupView control.Also please let us know if you have set any properties in the Form''s Load event or Constructor.

Thanks for choosing Syncfusion products.

Hi Anupama,

I haven''t set any properties in Form_Load event. Below is the designer generated code. Iam using around 10 group view controls and I have pasted designer code related to only one group view control. All other group view control''s code is similar.

private void InitializeComponent()
this.crmGV = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.GroupView();
//Initialisation is done for all the group view controls which i used

this.groupBar.AllowDrop = true;
//All the group view controls are added to GroupBar control

this.groupBar.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Left;
this.groupBar.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("Tahoma", 8.25F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Point, ((System.Byte)(0)));
this.groupBar.GroupBarItems.AddRange(new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.GroupBarItem[] {
this.groupBar.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 80);
this.groupBar.Name = "groupBar";
this.groupBar.SelectedItem = 0;
this.groupBar.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(152, 373);
this.groupBar.TabIndex = 5;
this.groupBar.Text = "groupBar";
// crmGV
this.crmGV.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("Tahoma", 8.25F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Point, ((System.Byte)(0)));
this.crmGV.LargeImageList = null;
this.crmGV.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(2, 23);
this.crmGV.Name = "crmGV";
this.crmGV.SelectedItem = 0;
this.crmGV.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(148, 151);
this.crmGV.SmallImageList = null;
this.crmGV.TabIndex = 0;
this.crmGV.Text = "crmGV";
this.crmGV.GroupViewItemSelected += new System.EventHandler(this.crmGV_GroupViewItemSelected);

// crmGroupBarItem
this.crmGroupBarItem.Client = this.crmGV;
this.crmGroupBarItem.Text = "CRM";
