The DevExpress ASP.NET Vertical Grid (ASPxVerticalGrid) allows end-users to group rows in categories (category rows). A category row (VerticalGridCategoryRow) stores its rows within the Rows collection. Individual rows are represented by standard grid row objects (VerticalGridDataRow, VerticalGridImageRow, VerticalGridHyperlinkRow and others).
In this demo, you can click a category to expand or collapse it, provided that the AllowRowExpanding property is set to true (the “Allow expanding” check box is checked). To expand or collapse a category row programmatically, use the Expanded property. Animation during row expansion can be enabled by using the AllowExpandAnimation property (the “Enable row expanding animation” check box is checked). To indent a row from a category row, set the ShowCategoryIndents property to true (the “Show category indents” check box is checked).
