Hi Varun Mangla,

The best way to do this is to use the GridViewExpandableRowStyle property of the grid and edit the style and the template of expander.

I think i find some place to set the background of the space.

<Border Visibility="{Binding IsExpanded, Converter={StaticResource BooleanToVisibilityConverter}, RelativeSource={RelativeSource TemplatedParent}}" Grid.Column="2" Grid.ColumnSpan="2" Grid.Row="2" Background="{StaticResource GridView_HierarchyBackground}" BorderBrush="{StaticResource ControlOuterBorder}" BorderThickness="0,1" Padding="6">
     <ContentPresenter x:Name="PART_HierarchyChildPresenter"/>
    </Border>

I can set this background="{x:Null}" to let it be transparent, but it seens like another background behind this border.
How can set it transparent completely?

Thanks

Hello Darren Qian,

The hierarchy border is rendered inside the row. Therefore setting its background to null will show the background of the row. You will have to set its background to null and the one of the grid itself as well to get the full transparency you want. However I fear the resulting grid might render unreadable if you are using it on a fairly dark background.

Let me know how this goes.
