A container for multiple child components so that they can be displayed in a single panelGrid cell. An <apex:panelGroup> must be a child component of an <apex:panelGrid>.


    <apex:panelGrid columns="3" id="theGrid">
        <apex:outputText value="First" id="theFirst"/>
        <apex:outputText value="Second" id="theSecond"/>
        <apex:panelGroup id="theGroup">
            <apex:outputText value="Third" id="theThird"/>
            <apex:outputText value="Fourth" id="theFourth"/>

The example above renders the following HTML:

<table id="theGrid">
            <td><span id="theFirst">First</span></td>
            <td><span id="theSecond">Second</span></td>
            <td><span id="theGroup">
                    <span id="theThird">Third</span>
                    <span id="theFourth">Fourth</span>
