we are using a GGC which is bound to a custom object. The custom object implement IBindingList.

So for example we have the follwing object:

public class MyTable: BindingList, ITypedList


so the corresponding "MyRow" class looks something similar like this:

public class MyRow
string Name

CustomObject Data

So the problem occurs for the "Data" property because this is not a native type.

The CustomObject class looks something similar like this:

public class CustomObject
private double myValue;

public string StringValue

So in the binding we set for the mapping name (for the column) "Data_StringValue" now the StringValue appears in the cell. How can I get the parent property for the field "Data_StringValue". I can only get the parent FieldDescriptor with GetParentFieldDescriptor - but I want the parent property so "Data" instead of "Data_StringValue".

Hi Tom,

If you want to hide the inner most property field of the custom object then set the Engine.ShowNestedPropertiesFields to false. Here is a code snippet

this.gridGroupingControl1.Engine.ShowNestedPropertiesFields = false;

Best regards,
