Is there any way to nest the DetailTable (i.e. child rows) inside a column of each parent item in the grid? (instead of the user having to click on the expand button to show the child rows for each parent item) I want the grid to show each parent along with their children upon page load (the child rows would be embedded in a column within each parent).

Hi Dave,

RadGrid does not support this scenario off-the-shelf. However, you can easily implement it by using a GridTemplateColumn with another RadGrid in the ItemTemplate. You can bind the nested RadGrid to some data related to the parent grid using its NeedDataSource event.

To demonstrate this approach, I have attached a small test page you can run locally. Simply add it (and the sample data source code file)  to a project and reference the Telerik.Web.UI binaries in it.
