SubGrids in SubGrids

Sep 22, 2011 at 10:14 PM

I have a UI requirement calling for double nesting of subgrids (subgrids within subgrids within the main grid).  The second level of subgridding has been difficult for me.  

The first subgrid is based upon the primary key value in its parent row of the main grid (which named at design time).  So, the second level subgrid would depend on the primary key in its parent row in the first subgrid.

However, unlike the main grid, this first level subgrid is named dynamically in the browser based on the main grid name and contain row's primary key value.  (<table id="dynamicname"> in html).  So, it seems that the first subgrids' dynamic naming prevents the second subgrid identifying it and thus locating related the primary key value.  Am I correct?

(...SetName() method and Name property have no effect ...)

Is there a actually a way to multi-level subgrids that I'm missing?  Do you know of a way to implement this in jQuery?  Or, do you know of a "trick" in that I can use in .NET?

Changeset 70094 does not build for me.  

GridControl.cs lines 354 and 355 refer to new GridColumnModel.OnCellSelect member that apparently was not checked in.
