Good Afternoon,

I am currently working on a project at work and we are using the RadGrid to display some hierarchical information. All works fine except for binding to a list that is contained within the primary class. I have the following:

Approver Class:
---------------------

    public class BOC_Approver
    {
        public BOC_Approver()
        {
        }

        public BOC_Approver(Int32 MyApproverID, String MyApproverName)
        {
            ApproverID   = MyApproverID;
            ApproverName = MyApproverName;
        }

        public Int32  ApproverID { get; set; }
        public String ApproverName { get; set; }
    }



Product Class:
-------------------
    public class BOC_Product
    {
        public BOC_Product()
        {
            Approvers = new List<BOC_Approver>();
        }

        public BOC_Product(Int32 MyProductID, String MyName) : this()
        {
            ProductID = MyProductID;
            ProductName = MyName;         
        }

        public Int32              ProductID { get; set; }
        public String             ProductName { get; set; }
        public List<BOC_Approver> Approvers { get; set; }
     }


Rad Grid Setup:
---------------------
  <telerik:RadGrid ID="gridNewHireRequests" runat="server" CssClass="MyGridControl" GridLines="None" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
                             OnNeedDataSource="gridNewHireRequests_NeedDataSource" >                        
        <ClientSettings>
          <Scrolling AllowScroll="True" ScrollHeight="100%" UseStaticHeaders="false" />
        </ClientSettings>
                        
        <MasterTableView DataKeyNames="ProductID" CommandItemDisplay="Top">
            <CommandItemSettings ShowAddNewRecordButton="true" ShowRefreshButton="false" />
                <DetailTables>
                    <telerik:GridTableView DataKeyNames="ProductID" Width="100%" runat="server">
                        <ParentTableRelation>
                            <telerik:GridRelationFields DetailKeyField="ProductID" MasterKeyField="ProductID" />
                        </ParentTableRelation>
                        <Columns>
                          <telerik:GridBoundColumn  DataField="Approvers.ApproverID" HeaderText="Approver ID" UniqueName="ApproverID" />
                          <telerik:GridBoundColumn   DataField="Approvers.ApproverName"  HeaderText="Approver Name"  UniqueName="ApproverName" />
                         </Columns>
                        </telerik:GridTableView>
                    </DetailTables>
                    <Columns>
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ProductID" HeaderText="Product ID" UniqueName="ProductID" />
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ProductName" HeaderText="Product Name" UniqueName="ProductName" />
                    </Columns>
                </MasterTableView>
            </telerik:RadGrid>


If the Approvers List in the Product class was just another class I can get this to work no issues, but because the Approvers property in the Product class is a list I am unsure how to get it to bind in the subgrid. At the moment if throws an error with unknown fields of course.

is there a standard way to handle binding if a list that each element contains another list?

Thanks, Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,

Please try with the below code snippet.

<telerik:RadGrid ID="gridNewHireRequests" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
       OnNeedDataSource="gridNewHireRequests_NeedDataSource" OnDetailTableDataBind="gridNewHireRequests_DetailTableDataBind">
       <ClientSettings>
           <Scrolling AllowScroll="True" ScrollHeight="100%" UseStaticHeaders="false" />
       </ClientSettings>
       <MasterTableView DataKeyNames="ProductID" CommandItemDisplay="Top">
           <CommandItemSettings ShowAddNewRecordButton="true" ShowRefreshButton="false" />
           <DetailTables>
               <telerik:GridTableView DataKeyNames="ApproverID" Width="100%" runat="server">
                   <Columns>
                       <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ApproverID" HeaderText="Approver ID" UniqueName="ApproverID" />
                       <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ApproverName" HeaderText="Approver Name" UniqueName="ApproverName" />
                   </Columns>
               </telerik:GridTableView>
