    I am trying to setup a hierarchical grid where the master data is summary contact data and the detail is a tabstrip containing one tab for detailed contact information and the other tab containing a grid for the order information.  To me this seems like a very straightforward use for the tabstrip control inside a nestedviewtemplate.  I want to be able to handle all of the databinding in the code-behind, but I can't seem to figure out how to bind the inner-grid to the appropriate datasource.  All of my datasources are retrieved with calls to classes that return datasets.  

    Is there an example that I can look at that works this way?  The ones I've found online seem to do the binding to the asp:sqldatasource control, which doesn't work in my scenario.

    This is pretty much the structure of what I want to accomplish:

       Contact Summary
       Tab 1
             Contact Detail (just bound asp fields)
         Tab 2
              Order Details (in a grid)

    Hello Todd,

    In order to have the inner Grid properly bind to its dataset you should call rebind for that Grid in the ItemDataBound of the parent Grid control.
    I also recommend that you examine the online example below which demonstrates a similar functionality and let me know if it helps:

    Give this a try and let me know if this works in your case.
