Change the caption text

You can change the caption text by setting the TopLevelGroupOptions.CaptionText property value as some desired text. You can also change the caption text of the nested tables by using the NestedTableGroupOptions.CaptionText property.


int count = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableModel.RowCount;
//Setting the CaptionText for the GridGroupingControl
this.gridGroupingControl1.TopLevelGroupOptions.CaptionText = "This Parent table has {RecordCount} records";
//To change the Caption text of Nested Child tablethis.gridGroupingControl1.NestedTableGroupOptions.CaptionText = "Nested Table";


Dim count As Integer = Me.gridGroupingControl1.TableModel.RowCount
'Setting the CaptionText for the GridGroupingControl
Me.gridGroupingControl1.TopLevelGroupOptions.CaptionText = "This Parent table has {RecordCount} records"
'To change the Caption text of Nested Child tableMe.gridGroupingControl1.NestedTableGroupOptions.CaptionText = "Nested Table"
