Hi,

Can you use a variable or a Session["variable"] as the ClientDetailTemplateId value? Or does it have to be a hard-coded string? I would like to be able to control the displaying of the detail template based on a user profile setting.  If the user is not allowed to see the details, I'd like to set a variable (or session cookie/variable) to an empty string, otherwise set it to the detail template name.

I already have the detail template working, but would now like to control whether or not it is displayed. When I change the name to an empty string "", the details template does not get displayed, so if I can use a variable for this name, I should be able to get my desired result.

Thanks,
Shawn

Hi Shawn,

Generally, you can check these resources for common knowledge:
http://www.telerik.com/forums/clientdetailtemplateid-and-id-of-parent
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13453288/kendo-ui-grid-different-detail-templates-depending-on-condition

Or you can define some variable and try to get it from the ViewBar or ViewData:
@{
    var gridname1 = "grid1";
}
 
@(Html.Kendo().Grid<WebApplication1.Models.ProductViewModel>()
    .Name(@gridname1)
 
I hope this will prove helpful. If you have different requirements or further instructions, please elaborate on your specific scenario.

Eyup,

Thanks so much for that reply.  I knew it had to be a simple solution.  My search text just did not bring up those links you listed.  All sorted now.
