Sorry, my mistake so skip that bit ;-)

The following must not be set on the group for it to work as a container or scrolling layermode:

- opaque 
- showBorder 
- showname 
- hScrollbar
- vScrollbar 
- dropShadow
- innerShadow
- outerGlow
- innerGlow
- colorOverlay

Yes these should be listed in the docs for layerMode instead of just `(no borders, no scrollbars)`. If someone would like to create a docs bug report about that and even better submit a patch that would he helpful for everyone I think.

The issue is more likely with the properties of the main datagrid group rather than your row template
