NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Grid.Core


public bool AllowGrouping { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true to allow an end-user to group data; otherwise, false.


End-users can group data in two ways:

  • Drag a column’s header to the group panel (requires the GridViewBase.ShowGroupPanel property to be set to true).
  • Invoke a column’s context menu by right-clicking its header, and select the Group By This Column menu item.

Both methods are allowed if the view’s AllowGrouping property is set to true.


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