I'm trying to create a master detail view in a radgridview component for data from database. We use a component for database which returns a dataset.
I have RadControls for WinForms Q2 2010 SP2. The tutorial tells me to open the MasterGridviewTemplate from the properties window, but in my properties for radgridview  that property doesn't exist. What am i missing?

Hi,

I think what you would like is a hierarchy grid. You can check out the demos on your PC that came with the controls under GridView >> Hierarchy and also see this documentation about binding to hierarchical data

The RadGridView.MasterGridViewTemplate has since been replaced with
RadGridView.MasterTemplate

hope this helps but let me know if you have further questions

Hello Kari,

You can also use the PropertyBuilder to access the MasterGridViewTemplate, just use click on the grid in the designer, use the SmartTag and open the PropertyBuilder.

Hope this helps, if you have any other questions or comments, please let me know,

hello again,

Under the demos on your PC, you may also want to check out "Custom Views" under GridView too.

Hello again,

Yes, there is a Templates property under the MasterGridViewTemplate, and you can add new templates selecting the Templates, and then press the new button and to the bottom there is an option to add a new Template.

Hope this helps, if you have any other questions or comments, please let me know,

Ok, thanks everybody, now i got it working.
I added a template for the detail part and a relation between the two.
Pretty straightforward if you think of it afterwards. The anoying part was that the tutorial didn't match the components properties, that led me astray...
