    When I inspect the GridCommandEventArgs event args in the OnItemCommand event handler I find...

    e.Item.OwnerID "ctl00_ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ContentPlaceHolder1_​myControl_gvMyGridWithTheDetailsTable_ctl00_ctl06_Detail10" string


    e.Item.OwnerTableView.ClientID "ctl00_ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ContentPlaceHolder1_​myControl_gvMyGridWithTheDetailsTable_ctl00_ctl06_Detail10" string

    However ...

    ((RadGrid)sender).MasterTableView.DetailTables[0].ClientID "" string (IT'S BLANK!)


    gvMyGridWithTheDetailsTable.MasterTableView.DetailTables[0].ClientID "" string (IT'S ALSO BLANK!)

    gvMyGridWithTheDetailsTable == sender true bool  


    gvMyGridWithTheDetailsTable.MasterTableView.DetailTables[0] == ((RadGrid)sender).MasterTableView.DetailTables[0] true bool

    as you'd expect, but..

    e.Item.OwnerTableView == ((RadGrid)sender).MasterTableView.DetailTables[0]    ***false***   bool   

    and yes there's only one details table....

    ((RadGrid)sender).MasterTableView.DetailTables.Count 1  int

    What's going on here?  
    Why aren't the instances of the GridTableView in the GridCommandEventArgs and the GridTableView of the sending datagrid the same?
    Why don't they have the same property values?

    I'm attempting customise viewstate for my datagrid, by disabling viewstate on the grid and saving the state I want kept manually.  I was hoping to write generic code for this that would work with RadGrids ​which have DetailTables. In the case of the Detail tables, not being able to correlate the ID of the grid being sorted in the OnItemCommand with the ID of anything in the Pre_Load event of the page is going to stop me from being able to restore the state for the grid.

    Hello Mick,

    In order to correctly access the detail table you should do so by accessing the expanded items NestedTableViews collection.

    protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object sender, GridCommandEventArgs e)
        GridDataItem item = e.Item as GridDataItem;
        if (item != null && item.ChildItem.NestedTableViews.Length > 0)
            string id = item.ChildItem.NestedTableViews[0].ID;

    If the above approach does not prove helpful please share with us the entire page contents so we could examine the implementation and determine why are you observing such behavior.
