Property Value

The Item1 property returns a BaseGroupByType object that represents the type of grouping scheme that is applied to the result set.


The Item1 property can be set with either a GroupByType or DistinguishedGroupByType object. Both types extend BaseGroupByType, which is an abstract class. This property is optional. If this property is not set, the result set will not be grouped.


Some properties cannot be used to form the group definitions.
