    Parent Property (Grouping)
    In This Topic

    Gets or sets an expression that identifies the parent group in a recursive hierarchy.

    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    Public Property Parent As GrapeCity.Enterprise.Data.Expressions.ExpressionInfo
    public GrapeCity.Enterprise.Data.Expressions.ExpressionInfo Parent {get; set;}

    Property Value

    An ExpressionInfo object indicating the parent group in a recursive hierarchy.

    Remarks

    This property only applies if the group has exactly one group expression

    Indicates the following:

    1. Groups are sorted according to the recursive hierarchy (sort is still used to sort peer groups).
    2. Labels (in the document map) are indented according to the recursive hierarchy.
    3. Intra-group show/hide toggles items according to the recursive hierarchy (see ToggleItem).

    If filters on the group eliminate the parent of a group instance, it is instead treated as a child of the parent's parent.
