Hello everyone, I am looking for a solution whether it is possible to use an element (container) of a similar type as a groupbox in the datawindow, to which columns could be assigned and it would be possible to collapse (expand) it by double-clicking. In the collapse state, the columns would be hidden, in the expand state - columns would be displayed. See attached picture ... 

Thanks in advance for your any reply ...

Hi Chris, thank you very much for your reply and tip. Yes, we know about the TreeView DataWindow style, however it is not applicable for our relatively complex Sheet objects. Finally, we programmed this functionality ourselves at the ancestor level of u_dwcontrol, and exploding/collapsing of groupboxes works across the entire ERP system, see attached URL (screen record).

Hi Milan;

  Have you thought about trying a TreeView DataWindow style for this design?

Regards ... Chris
