In this example, i have a month column and 4 columns for its weeks. All these column are at the same level.

I was wondering if i could expand the month column and show weeks columns underneath it.

Eventually, i would like to show days under weeks. But if you could just help me showing weeks under months, then i can figure out days.

Hi Adnan,

One comment is that by default, there is no built-in support for grouping columns in a virtual grid. If you need this support, we encourage you to use the GroupingGridControl. Please refer to the Grouping category browser sample. Here is a some sample in Grouping category.

The Grouping (\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\windows\Grid.Grouping.Windows\Samples\Grouping\Grouping\ ) sample illustrates how to do grouping of data at design time.

The MulticolumnGrouping ( \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\windows\Grid.Grouping.Windows\Samples\Grouping\MulticolumnGrouping\ ) sample lets you group the data by multiple columns.

The GroupingEvents ( \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\windows\Grid.Grouping.Windows\Samples\Grouping\GroupingEvents\ ) sample demonstrates the creation of an event log which, will show the order of the various Grouping events that are fired.

The CustomSectionInGroup ( \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\windows\Grid.Grouping.Windows\Samples\Grouping\CustomSectionInGroup\ ) sample demonstrates how to customize the layout of groups.

Best regards,

Adnan Sohail

Hi Haneef,

I have no problems using the gridgrouping control, but can i bound to a business object like virtual grid?

Hi Adnan,

The GenericCollection browser sample demonstrates the implementation of a Generic Collection and how you can bind it to a grid grouping control. A generic collection is one that can handle any Type in a generic and Type-Safe manner. By creating a generic collection, we can get the immediate benefit of type safety without having to derive from a base collection type and implement type-specific members.

Here is a path.
\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\windows\Grid.Grouping.Windows\Samples\CustomCollections\GenericCollection\

Also refer to the CustomCollection ( \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\windows\Grid.Grouping.Windows\Samples\CustomCollections\ ) category browser sample for more details.

Best regards,

ok .. i have seen most of the grouping grid
control samples.

I am wondering if it's easily achieveable to get a UI similar to what i have in the example i uploaded.

We are in planning stage and trying to figure out which grid will be the best solution.

Thanks for your help.
