Edit Column Names

These default names can be replaced by custom name for any column.

Under Column Settings, click Edit Column Names :

Grid Column Name button

In the Edit Column Names dialog, click the + icon to add a column name customization :

Grid Column Name add

From the new customization item, select a column name to rename :

Grid Column Name configure column

Write a new name for the column :

To reset a column name to its original (auto-generated) name, click the red cross on the right of the corresponding item :

Grid Column Name reset

Nested Columns

You can group Grid columns and configure a common title on top of the columns titles.
The top title is called a “Parent Column”, and the regular Grid column titles are called “Child Columns” of this Parent Column.

Under Column Settings, click Edit Nested Columns to open the editor.

Create a Nested Column

Click Create New to start creating a new Nested Column :

Grid Nested create click

A new un-configured row appears, and lets you configure :

  • Parent Column Name : the text label you want to use on the Parent title
  • Child Columns : the list of children columns that are nested under this Parent Column. This is where you can list, add, or remove children
  • Delete : click to delete this Parent column.

Grid Nested child add click

You can create several separate Nested Columns.

Add / Remove Children

Under Child Columns, click Add to select which current Grid columns you want to nest under this Parent Column.
The Add Child Column dialog appears, to let you select an available Column from the Grid :

Grid Nested child select click

The column names are then listed in the Edit Nested Columns dialog :

Grid Nested child list


In this example, columns are grouped by data origin :
