I currently have a radgrid with a master table and a detail table. Above my detail table is a link to add a new item to the table. All that is in the form is the master items. How can I add a button inside that form so I can add a detail record related to that master record? Actually I do not see anywhere on the page where I can add a detail record. So I really would like 2 places to add details. One-inside the master insert form, and 2-when I expand the master to the detail level, I would like the option to add a new record there.

Hope I am explaining myself fully....thanks in advance,
Laura

Hi Laura,

You can set the EditFormType to Form Template. Design the template so that you
 can  insert the child record from the master form . Check out the following code sample on how to perform insert operation using FormTemplate.

Thanks for the answers....I am on my way. What I ideally would like is for the insert form of the master table to have a button which can be clicked to add detail records. And then have the hierarchary + expand inside the form so you can see all the records for this new record. Let me explain:

I have a provider table(master) and for each provider, you can have a number of contacts. I would like to be able to create a new provider and while in that form, click a button "create new contact" which will then (indented) just show the form for the contacts. Once the user enters the contact, then I would like to see a grid embedded inside the form of all contacts and then when the user clicks ok, the master info is saved.

Is this possible?

Thanks,
Laura
