    I have a Grid which displays a selected fields of an object... The code snippet for grid is as follows...

    <telerik:RadGridView   RowDetailsVisibilityMode="VisibleWhenSelected" 
                                             Name="radGridViewCountry" Height="300" 
                                             ItemsSource="{Binding Mode=TwoWay,
    I also have a rowdetails template  as below using which I can display some additional fields of the same itemsource...

                                    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" 
                                        <TextBlock Text="ID: " />
                                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding ID}" />
                                         <TextBlock Text="Country: " />
                                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding Name}" />
                                </DataTemplate> </telerik:RadGridView.RowDetailsTemplate>

    I want to achieve the same thing using a child grid ,Iis that possible...? I tried the three examples given in the demos but not able to do what i actually wanted.... Any help would be appreciated..

    Thanks and Regds.,

    Hello Ramyashree,

    It is possible. You have to place two grids on the page. The first one will be the master grid and it will be bound to the collection containing the master entities, let's say football clubs.

    Suppose each football club POCO has a collection property called Players, which are also POCO's. You can then bind the second grid's ItemsSource to the first grid's SelectedItem.Players.

    In this way, each time you select a different club in the master grid, the child grid will display the players for the selected club.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
