Instead of displaying records filtered by groups when a user selects a column and drops it into the ShowGroupDropArea, is there a way to just basically show the group by default when the form loads?

For example, this tutorial shows the data is being grouped by Year, then by School:

Is there a way to do this automatically when the form loads without user specifying it at run time?

At runtime, you can programatically group the grid by adding the column to the TableDescriptor.GroupedColumns collection.

grid.TableDescriptor.GroupedColumns.Add("Col1"); //group by the column whose name is "Col1".
