Hello,

I would like to be able to programmatically and asynchronously (without a full postback) switch from a hierarchal to a flat (group-by) grid.

Basically the first level of the hierarchal grid would have only one visible column and one index column (not visible). The user will click a button I will want to asynchronously rebind the grid to a single table (non-hierarchal) with many visible columns (and vise-versa).

Of course I am able to do this with a full postback, but what I would like is to fully change (and redisplay to the user) a new/different grid scheme 100%  asynchronously.

Thank you!

Hi Jeff,

You can ajaxify the grid using RadAjaxManager or RadAjaxPanel.

Yes, I fully understand that and have been working with ajaxified controls for a while now. My question is; can the grid schema be changed from flat to hierarchal or can I change the datasource all together without a full postback and display the changes to the user asynchronously?

In the past and working with another control, I was not able to do this without a full postback.

Thanks!
