hi all i'm new to silverlight and am trying to use the datagridview control to set up a mail inbox.

This involves a web service call to get back some xml to fill the datagridview I have this working fine.  However I want to fill the usercontrol when the grid view is expanded to show the email content and attachments, like the demo. This involves another  webservice  call to get back some more xml with the email details (attachment, body) which would be shown on the usercontrol in textboxes when the gridview expands. does any body know what event i need to use to capture the expand event and to then do the webservice call and fill my user control?

Hi jonathan,

You should use the event LoadingRowDetails of the RadGridView like here.

Regarding calling your web service and filling your user control, I have prepared a sample project showing the logic of your desired scenario.
I have created a separate class for details. In the UI(MainPage.xaml) I have shown a RadGridView with a custom UserControl in its RowDetailsTemplate. In the code behind in clubsGrid_LoadingRowDetails I am getting the details data. I am setting it to the grid Details and this way it is automatically updated in the RowDetailsTemplate.
In case that the reply from the web service is slow, you could use a busy indicator that will inform the user that the data capturing is in progress.
