We appreciate your interest in Syncfusion Products.

This can be achieved by handling the TableControlCurrentCellInitializeControlText method of GridGroupingControl. Please refer the code:

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControlCurrentCellInitializeControlText += new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.Grouping.GridTableControlCurrentCellInitializeControlTextEventHandler(gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellInitializeControlText);

void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellInitializeControlText(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.Grouping.GridTableControlCurrentCellInitializeControlTextEventArgs e)
if (e.Inner.ColIndex == 3)
e.Inner.ControlText = sc[0];

Please refer the sample in the link to illustrate this:

Kindly try this and let me know if you need further assistance.

Please use the CurrentCellInitializeControlText event of GridControl.
Please refer the code:

this.gridControl1.CurrentCellInitializeControlText += new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCurrentCellInitializeControlTextEventHandler(gridControl1_CurrentCellInitializeControlText);

void gridControl1_CurrentCellInitializeControlText(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCurrentCellInitializeControlTextEventArgs e)


Let me know if this helps.
