Hello ProfUIS-Team,

after having updated from v2.80 to v2.82 there seems to be a different behaviour concerning the alignment of the first column when there are at least two items present in the group area: in v2.80 the first column was nicely aligned with the lowermost group item, while in v2.82 the first column is always left aligned with respect to the first header column.

Is there a way (option?) to get the "old" behaviour under v2.82?

Thanks in advance and greetings from Germany (you’re doing a great job!),

Just not to be forgotten ... ;-)

Should I override some special virtual function from base class to get the correct behaviour?

Now I took the code from v2.82 to override CExtReportGridWnd::OnGbwAdjustRects (the code from above didn’t indent the first column) and it nearly works like it should.

The only thing that is not so nice is that if selecting a data row then a dotted rectangle is drawn around the whole row and not only around the indented part of the row.

Should I override some special virtual function from base class to get the correct behaviour?

The new row layout was requested many times by Prof-UIS users and it’s better looking in a horizontally scrollable item-by-item report grid (this is well supported starting from 2.82 only). Here is the older version of the CExtReportGridWnd::OnGbwAdjustRects() virtual method which you can override in your report grid class and make rows having the older fashion:

void CExtReportGridWnd::OnGbwAdjustRects(
      LONG nColNo,
      LONG nRowNo,
      INT nColType,
      INT nRowType,
      RECT & rcCellExtraA,
      RECT & rcCellA
      ) const
      ASSERT_VALID( this );
LONG nChildCount = 0L;
      if( nRowType == 0 && nColType == NULL )
            hTreeItem = ItemGetByVisibleRowIndex( nRowNo );
            if( hTreeItem != NULL )
                  nChildCount = ItemGetChildCount( hTreeItem );
                  if( nChildCount == 0 )
      if( nColType != 0 || nRowType != 0 )
LONG nColFirst = 0, nColLast = 0, nColFirstOffset = 0;
      ASSERT( nColFirst <= nColLast );
      if( nColNo != nColFirst )
            ::SetRectEmpty( &rcCellA );
            ::SetRectEmpty( &rcCellExtraA );
      } // if( nColNo != nColFirst )
CRect rcClient = OnSwGetClientRect(); 
CSize _sizeTotal = OnSwGetTotalSize();
CPoint _pos = OnSwGetScrollPos();
DWORD dwBseStyleEx = BseGetStyleEx();
DWORD dwScrollTypeH = SiwScrollTypeHGet();
      if(         dwScrollTypeH == __ESIW_ST_NONE
            &&    (dwBseStyleEx&__EGBS_BSE_EX_PROPORTIONAL_COLUMN_WIDTHS) != 0
   = OnSwGetClientRect().Width();
            _pos.x = 0;
      if( < 0 )
   = 0;
      if( < 0 )
   = 0;
LONG nRight = rcClient.left + - _pos.x;
      rcCellA.right = rcCellExtraA.right = nRight;
      if( rcCellA.right < rcCellA.left )
            rcCellA.right = rcCellA.left;
      if( rcCellExtraA.right < rcCellExtraA.left )
            rcCellExtraA.right = rcCellExtraA.left;

The "old" behaviour was buggy. Check out this thread: Grouped ReportGrid - painting problem. I don’t see in the version history anything that would suggest that the "other mode for data rows" mentioned in the above thread would be available.
