    Good day, I have copied your examples that use the RowDetailsTemplate. Attached is an image showing that I load another user control into the RowDetailsTemplate. This is set in the XAML below with X:key = "SiteClassificationUc" etc, as per your examples. So when I click the GridViewToggleRowDetails button, I can see the User Control. So far so good. My questions are;

    1 I would like to set the user control into the RowDetailsTemplate using C#, so depending on the ActivityType (as shown in the image), I would like to add a different user control. A possible solution to this is using your example..
     this.radGridView.RowDetailsTemplate = (DataTemplate)this.LayoutRoot.Resources["EmployeeInfoRowDetailsTemplate"];
    However, I would need to know how I could get access to the instance of the EmployeeInfoRowDetailsTemplate at runtime. so I prefer to create the instance of the user control at runtime.

    2 I would like to fire an event when I click the GridViewToggleRowDetails button, so that I can get the Activity Type and populate the different user controls in the RowDetailsTemplate with data.

    Any examples or help much appreciated.

    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">

     

     

    <Grid.Resources

     

     

     

    <DataTemplate x:Key="SiteClassificationUc">  

     

     

    <local:SiteClassificationUc />
    </DataTemplate>
    </Grid.Resources>
    <tg:RadGridView x:Name="gxThingActivity" AutoGenerateColumns="False" Margin="0" CanUserFreezeColumns="False"

     

     RowDetailsVisibilityMode="VisibleWhenSelected" RowDetailsTemplate="{StaticResource SiteClassificationUc}"

     

     

    ScrollMode="RealTime"

     

     

     

    HorizontalAlignment="Left"

     

     

     

    RowIndicatorVisibility="Collapsed">

    Hello Steven,

    1. Place an empty StackPanel or Grid in the RowDetailsTemplate. Attach to the LoadingRowDetails event of the grid. In the event handler of this event, e.DetailsElement will be a reference to the row-particular instance of the StackPanel/Grid you have defined in the row details template. Sine e.DataContext will be the data item of the row for which row details are loading, you can read its ActivityType and based upon it decide what child control to add to the empty container and how to fill them up with data.

    If you think that data might change between two consecutive showings of a row's details, you might consider attaching to the RowDetailsVisibilityChanged event instead of the LoadingRowDetails event.

    2. This will be solved if you implement the scheme I have described above.

    To learn more about RowDetails, please consult the online documentation. You can also check out some more advanced row details topics on my personal blog.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.
