Im very new at using Telerik so pleas bare with me.

ive been trying to follow this
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/data-editing/edit-form-types/defaultcs.aspx
Here's my problem, im using EditForms as Editmode of my Radgrid but the difference is that my radgrid has a child grid
but everytime I click on edit button on the child grid the child grid becomes missing, and will only show up again when I retract and expand again the parent grid, only then the editform together with the child rid is shown, but still the details of the child grid is gone, please see the attached image for a better picture of whats happening.

ASPX

Hi,

I have examined your current implementation, but the correct way for binding your child grid within the NestedViewTemplate would be to handle the OnNeedDataSource event. You should have in mind that in order to populate the nested grid by handling the OnNeedDataSource event you will have to call the Rebind method once the parent item is expanding.

For your convenience, please take a look at the following simple example and see how the parent and the child grids are bound:
<telerik:RadGrid runat="server" ID="RadGrid1" OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid1_NeedDataSource" OnItemCommand="RadGrid1_ItemCommand">
    <MasterTableView>
        <NestedViewTemplate>
            <telerik:RadGrid runat="server" ID="RadGrid2" OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid2_NeedDataSource">      
                <MasterTableView>
                    <Columns>
                        <telerik:GridEditCommandColumn></telerik:GridEditCommandColumn>
                    </Columns>
                </MasterTableView>         
            </telerik:RadGrid>
        </NestedViewTemplate>
    </MasterTableView>
</telerik:RadGrid>

And the code-behind:
protected void RadGrid1_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
{
    DataTable table = new DataTable();
    table.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(int));
    table.Columns.Add("FirstName", typeof(string));
    for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
    {
        table.Rows.Add(i, "FirstName" + i);
    }
 
    (sender as RadGrid).DataSource = table;
}
 
protected void RadGrid2_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
{
    RadGrid nestedGrid = sender as RadGrid;
    GridDataItem parentItem = (nestedGrid.NamingContainer as GridNestedViewItem).ParentItem;
 
    //retrieve some value from the parent item
    string itemID = parentItem["ID"].Text;
 
    DataTable table = new DataTable();
    table.Columns.Add("Field1", typeof(string));
    table.Columns.Add("Field2", typeof(string));
    for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
    {
        table.Rows.Add("field1" + itemID, "field1" + itemID);
    }
 
    (sender as RadGrid).DataSource = table;
}
 
protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object sender, GridCommandEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.CommandName == RadGrid.ExpandCollapseCommandName)
    {
        if (!(e.Item as GridDataItem).Expanded)
        {
            ((e.Item as GridDataItem).ChildItem.FindControl("RadGrid2") as RadGrid).Rebind();
        }
    }
}

Hope this helps.
