Steps to merge data in cells

It might be simple but I haven't found any simple guide about mergind data in a grid. Could you please provide a list of steps for merging data in a GridDataBoundGrid? I tried the following but it didn't work. 1) enabling merge option in grid gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.Options.MergeCellsMode = GridMergeCellsMode.MergeRowsInColumn; 2) declaring column to be merged gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.InternalColumns[3].StyleInfo.MergeCell = GridMergeCellDirection.ColumnsInRow; Do I have to work around any specific event? TIA Jose.

Try gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.InternalColumns[3].StyleInfo.MergeCell = GridMergeCellDirection.RowsInColumn; if you want to merge cells vertically. Stefan

Now, if I click on any of the merged cells I still see the value underneath. How can I hide those merged cell values? or better, Why the merge operation does not create only one cell merging all data values accordingly? Thanks

You can avoid the cell to start editing and showing a value when clicked on by setting the celltype to static. gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.InternalColumns[3].StyleInfo.CellType = "Static"; If you want it to be a single cell, then you probably should use CoveredCells instead of MergeCells. You can handle the QueryCoverdRange event and dynamically provide the range at that point.
