Grouping in Angular Grid component

The Grid has options to group records by dragging and dropping the column header to the group drop area. When grouping is applied, grid records are organized into a hierarchical structure to facilitate easier expansion and collapse of records.

To enable Grouping in the grid, set the allowGrouping to true. Grouping options can be configured in groupSettings.

To use Grouping, you need to inject GroupService in the provider section of AppModule.

Group with Paging

On grouping columns with paging feature, the aggregated information and total items are displayed based on the current page. The grid does not consider aggregated information and total items from other pages. To get additional details (aggregated information and total items) from other pages, set the groupSettings.disablePageWiseAggregates to false.

If remote data is bound to grid dataSource, two requests will be sent when performing grouping action; one for getting the grouped data and another for getting aggregate details and total items count.

Group by format

By default, columns will be grouped by the data or value present for the particular row. To group numeric or datetime column based on the mentioned format, you have to enable the enableGroupByFormat property of the corresponding grid columns.

Grouping Events

During the group action, the grid component triggers two events. The actionBegin event triggers before the group action starts and the actionComplete event triggers after the group action is completed. Using these events you can perform any action.

args.requestType is current action name. For example in grouping, the args.requestType value is ‘grouping’.

Reordering on Grouped Columns

Grid provides an option to interchange the position of the Grouped Columns by dragging and dropping the grouped headercells in the droparea. So, any new column entering into the droparea can also be dropped in any position.

To enable this feature, you have to set the groupSettings.allowReordering property as true.
