Hi Harshini,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

The Caption text of the GroupedCaption can be changed using the QueryCellStyleInfo, and the grouped value can be retrieved using the Category of the DisplayElement.

Please refer the code below to implement this behavior:
void gridGroupingControl1_QueryCellStyleInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.Grouping.GridTableCellStyleInfoEventArgs e)
if (e.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType == Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.Grouping.GridTableCellType.GroupCaptionCell)
e.Style.Text = e.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.ParentGroup.Category.ToString();

Also refer the attached sample which showcases the behavior:

Let me know if you have any queries.

thanks nirmal..

it works if we have to display category-no of items items text

bankname - 2 items

should we concatenate with

e.Style.Text = e.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.ParentGroup.Category.ToString();


e.style.Text += e.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.ParentGroup.GetRecordCount();

e.STYLE.tEXT += "Items";

Hi Harshini,

Thanks for your update.

The effect of following code will be viewed only when that column is grouped.

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Sport"].GroupByOptions.CaptionText = "{Category} {RecordCount} Items";

If you would like to set the caption format for the toplevelgroup(main group), the following setting have to be handled.

this.gridGroupingControl1.TopLevelGroupOptions.CaptionText = "{Category} {RecordCount} Items";

Similarly, for child groups,
this.gridGroupingControl1.ChildGroupOptions.CaptionText = "{Category} {RecordCount} Items";

and for nested tables,
this.gridGroupingControl1.NestedTableGroupOptions.CaptionText = "{Category} {RecordCount} Items";

Please let us know if you have any further concerns.
