I have a GridDataControl with results. I created a Group-property in the "row-model" and group the results:

Now, since I've added a property (List(Of String)) to the "row-model", I also get a PlusMinus-Symbol for each result in the groups.

I only want the symbol in front of the group names but not for each result.

Thank you very much,

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your update.

As per our grid architecture, you cannot apply the different style to expander for each row. However in general in our latest version you customize the style of the expander. To achieve this requirement, In our latest version, we have exposed the property to customize the expander by using GridDataStyleManager of the GridDataControl.StyleManager like shown below,

Code Snippet[XAML]

And also please note, you cannot bind the image or symbol directly to the PlusPath and MinusPath of the ExpanderAppearence in the GridDataStyleManager. It should be converted to "Path", and then you need to bind the respective path key value to the PlusPath and MinusPath of the ExpanderAppearence in the GridDataStyleManager of the GridDataControl.

Please find our latest version release details below,

Version: v9.2.0.138

Download Link:

Please run the below sample after installing the above setup file,

Customizing the expander appearance is available from the version v9.2.0.137 and higher version.

Please let us know if you have any queries.

Sorry, I think I didn't explained my problem exactly enough.

I don't want to customize the PlusMinus-symbol.

At the moment the user can expand the GroupRows and the rows in the groups. But the user should only be able to expand the groups and not the rows in the groups.

Since I'v added a property of List(Of String)-type, I have this problem.

Thank you very much!
