Hi there,

I apologize in advance if there is already a solution to this problem, but I've been searching all morning.

I have a Hierarchical Rad Grid that uses a NestedViewTemplate.  I use an ObjectDataSource for the parent grid that provides the columns 'CreatedBy' and 'CreatedOn' (string and datetime, respectively).

I'd like to display these values in the child RadGrid without having to make a separate call to the database.

How do I access these values from a nested RadGrid?  Outside of the RadGrid, the standard Eval("CreatedBy") works.

Thanks,
Dustin

Hello Dustin,

I am not sure that I understand your exact scenario, but if your child RadGrid is within the NestedViewTemplate, the only way for getting values from the parent grid would be to use get reference to the parent GridDataItem (corresponding to the NestedViewTemplate) and either access a column that hold the value that you need or include the data fields in the parent grid DataKeyNames collection and retrieve the values from the GridDataItem with GetDataKeyValue("dataField").

If you have other questions, please elaborate on your exact scenario, so we can give you more specific suggestions.

That's exactly what I ended up doing.

Thanks :)
