Thank you immensly for your help. Using your suggestions, I was able to get the progress meter to look exactly the way I want and I now have a progress meter on each row of the grid.
I am still having a little trouble on the 3rd question...getting the progress meters to update when the grid data is changed. I added the code to fire off the updateProgressMeters routine in the RadGrid1_UpdateCommand method. The trouble I'm having is accessing the actual progress meter. The progress meter is in the MasterTable, but the values being updated that need to cause the progress meter to update are in a 2nd or 3rd level hierarchy of the grid.
I tried using
|Dim progressArea As RadProgressArea = TryCast(e.Item.OwnerTableView.ParentItem.FindControl("PorgressArea1"), RadProgressArea)
but this doesn't seem to be right. I think by doing this, my parent item ends up being a data cell, not the MasterTable. I'm thinking I might have to use NestedTableView, but this has always confused me as to how to do it.
Do you think you could show me how to access a progress meter in a mastertable view from the detail tables of a hierarchy?
I appreciate the assistance more than you know.
