Property Value

Type Description

true if an end-user can group data by the current column; otherwise, false.


If the column’s GridColumn.AllowGrouping property is set to ‘Default’, its availability in data grouping is specified by the view’s GridViewBase.AllowGrouping property. In this instance, to determine whether an end user can actually group data by this column, use the ActualAllowGrouping property.

To learn more, see Grouping.


Data grouping requires data sorting to be performed. End-users can group data only if data sorting is allowed.
