  • 2 minutes to read

The following example shows how to create a new grid and set up Master-Detail data representation in code. When setting up a Master-Detail hierarchy, a detail grid and a custom detail section are placed within a tabbed container. So, the following Detail Descriptor types are used: DataControlDetailDescriptor, ContentDetailDescriptor, and TabViewDetailDescriptor.

<dxg:GridControl Grid.Row="0" Name="gridControl1" AutoGenerateColumns="AddNew" >
    <dxg:GridControl.View>
        <dxg:TableView DetailHeaderContent="Employees" AutoWidth="True" ShowGroupPanel="False"  />
    </dxg:GridControl.View>
    <dxg:GridControl.DetailDescriptor>
        <dxg:TabViewDetailDescriptor>
            <dxg:TabViewDetailDescriptor.DetailDescriptors>
                <dxg:DataControlDetailDescriptor ItemsSourcePath="Orders">
                    <dxg:DataControlDetailDescriptor.DataControl>
                        <dxg:GridControl AutoGenerateColumns="AddNew">
                            <dxg:GridControl.View>
                                <dxg:TableView DetailHeaderContent="Orders" AutoWidth="True" ShowGroupPanel="False" />
                            </dxg:GridControl.View>
                        </dxg:GridControl>
                    </dxg:DataControlDetailDescriptor.DataControl>
                </dxg:DataControlDetailDescriptor>
                <dxg:ContentDetailDescriptor ContentTemplate="{StaticResource EmployeeNotes}" HeaderContent="Notes">
                </dxg:ContentDetailDescriptor>
            </dxg:TabViewDetailDescriptor.DetailDescriptors>
        </dxg:TabViewDetailDescriptor>
    </dxg:GridControl.DetailDescriptor>
</dxg:GridControl>
