With the release of CUIC 7.5.3, there is one grid, the grid that was previously known as the "grouped grid". Since it now supports dynamic sorting it is now the only grid available.
One of the nice things about this grid is that much of its appearance can be customized by modifying the CSS (cascading style sheet) file that dictates its appearance. This is an undocumented technique, but should be fairly straightforward for anyone with a bit of HTML experience.
This CSS file can be found in the <CUIC root>/Stylesheets/ directory, and is called "StaticGroup.css". You can open this file in a text editor such as Notepad or Wordpad.
While a discussion of CSS is beyond the scope of this article, let's take a simple example, hiding the user and filter information at the bottom of the report.
After opening the StaticGroup.css file you can hide the footer information by deleting the existing style information for the .dateUserSummary and .filterSummary classes, and replace them with a style that hides those elements:
That's it! Other elements can be changed as well, play with it and make it your own. Make sure that you don't change the class names or the styles won't apply at all.
Note that any changes made to this file will be applied across the entire system, so you can't modify these and only apply the effect to a single report. If you change this file you will need to keep a backup as well, because subsequent releases and/or patches of CUIC will overwrite your modifications.
