Type Description

The column’s position among grouping columns. -1 if a View is not grouped by this column.


To group data against a column, set its GroupIndex property to a non-negative value.

If you group data against multiple columns, the GroupIndex property specifies the group level. In the following code sample, the City column has the 1 group level, and the Visits column has the 2 group level.

<dxg:GridColumn FieldName="City" IsSmart="True" GroupIndex="0"/>
<dxg:GridColumn FieldName="Visits" IsSmart="True" GroupIndex="1"/>
