How to implement drilldowngrouplevel as in crystal reports to drill down group levels in birt.
For eg. DrillDowngroupLevel > 1.
I've a situation where I'm unable to get the 'section expert' (as in crystals) to
Hide(Drill-Down Ok) and
Suppress(No Drill-Down)
to attain the similar functionality.
Is there a way or alternative to achieve the same?

I'm assuming you're simply talking about the way to expand and collapse table groups in the html output? If so, in the commercial version, this is out of the box functionality to have expanding and collapsing groups. In the open source version, you'll have to create the expanding and collapsing on your own either with a drill through (and parameters) or through JavaScript.

If using the paginated viewer, you'd need to do the drill through way. Something like this:

If displaying everything on a single html page, you could use JavaScript and not re-run the report.

Let me know if I misunderstood.
