Custom GridView (maybe?)
We have a need to have a gridview display one column with a rowspan of more than one, to group a certain field parameters together. I believe this can be done, but obviously it will require some considerable coding effort. I was wondering if it would be worth it to inherit from an existing control, or implement a new control from webcontrol.
Basically my approach was to store the lastly created row and compare the sorted field to the new row; if the same, adjust the rowspan for the sorted cell to the next incremental value.
I would appreciate any additional insight.
