    Is this possible?

    I have a scenario where I am displaying a list of flat files.  The user can expand a row and display the contents of the file in the child grid.

    However, some files are quite large, and I'll need to virtualize the child grids....OR simply display a multiline textbox instead of a grid.

    Either way, I'm really re-thinking my approach on this because I'm dealing with 300k+ rows...

    Are either of these paths possible?  Virtualize the child grid, or replace it with a text box?

    Hi Wayne,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can have a look at our examples application that is installed with the controls. There are a few examples that might be useful in your case. The examples are the following:
    • GridView >> Custom Views - In this example the details of each row are show in a custom view on the bottom of the grid.
    • GridView >> Rows >> Row Details - In this example details are show for only the selected row.
    • GridView >> Hierarchy >> Tabbed Views - This example demonstrates how to create a custom tab view with a chart.
    I hope this will be useful. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

    RadChart for WinForms is obsolete. Now what?
