We are looking to re-produce a data table we are building in HTML with the Kendo UI datagrid.  We have a parent/child relationship in the columns (Grocery, Liquor, Pharmacy), but if you click on a column, then the child columns display.  In our example, we clicked on liquor and liquor, beer and wine (the children of liquor) display.  

Is this possible to re-produce in the datagrid provided by Kendo and if so, could you provide an example.  We have looked at the grid within a grid, and visually our users would not like that option.

Thanks,
JD

Hi Justin,

Kendo Grid supports supports detail elements. The Grid - Hierarchy demo demonstrates how to implement nested (details) grids and this example shows how to use detail templates.
For more information please check the Grid API - http://docs.kendoui.com/api/web/grid
