    I have a master/detail grid (Read only) with a custom stand alone filtering control.

    Im looking to be able to filter the details records and update the master data as well.
    Im looking to do this all client side.

    (ie: Master table of Customers/ Detail table of Orders.  
    When i filter the orders by a field (say: Filled = true) through this stand alone control...
    I want the Master table to update to show only the records that have details that have the filtered items.)

    Is this possible?  How would I go about this?

    Hi Sean,

    Basically this scenario is possible, however it will require custom code. For example you can send the current custom filter to the server as additional parameter through the Read action of the master Grid. In this case the user should only choose the filter in the custom filter form and on press of given button to call the Grid DataSource read method which will make request to the server using current filter parameters. Then based on the additional parameter you can manually filter the records on the server.

    Kind Regards,
