Hi there.

I generate a GridView from a DataSet that contains two related tables. The relation between the two is intepreted by

            GridView.AutoGenerateHierarchy = true;


All of this works like a charm. The only issue is that I don´t know how to make the hierarchical child stretch columns to full width. Although the Grid itself stretches to full width, the child relation does not inherit this and the colums are too narrow.

Put simple - How to stretch child colums to the full width? Everything is generated programmatically from DataSets.

Please also the screenshot in the thread below...

Thanks!
El

Hi Elmar,

Thank you for contacting us and sending us the screenshot.

We do support Fill mode:

this.radGridView1.MasterGridViewTemplate.ChildGridViewTemplates[0].AutoSizeColumnsMode = GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill; 

Please, try this and let us know if it works for you.

Unfortunately, we do not support extending the header after the columns.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.

All the best,
Nick

Nick,

this is exactly what I needed. Actually it is pretty straight-forward but I simply haven´t thought of that.

May I suggest that you add this little line to the documentation? Not exactly how ti use the fill command -which is pretty obvious- but rather how to manipulate the ChildGridView when generating everything programmatically (using features like AutoGenerateHierarchy). Something like - "to adjust the presentation of your hierarchical child data you can access the corresponding ChildGridViewTemplate like this..."

Thanks for your support,
Elmar
