I would like to use the foldable group control that is available for Descriptions, but in a custom GeDialog. I have tried various combinations of groupflags when creating my group via GroupBegin/GroupBorder but the closest I got was then using BFV_BORDERGROUP_FOLD which does something similar but is marked as deprecated.

Anybody know a way for achieving this?

you can achieve something like this with the CUSTOMGUI_QUICKTAB.
Please take a look at the gedialog_gadgets example.
In this example take a look at QuickTabSubDialog. In QuickTabSubDialog::CreateLayout() you can see how to setup such a foldable group titlebar (ID_QUICKTAB_SUBDIALOG_SUBGROUP_TITLE) and how to do the folding (basically hiding/unhiding a sub-group) in QuickTabSubDialog::Command().
