Name Type Description
rowHandle Int32

An integer value specifying the master row handle.

relationName String

A string identifying the name of the required relationship.


Type Description

An integer representing the zero-based index of the specified relationship; -999999 if a relationship with the specified name is not found.


The number of relations for a particular row is determined by the GridView.GetRelationCount method. The GetRelationIndex method returns a value between 0 and GetRelationCount-1 and this defines the specified relationship’s index amongst the other relationships. The indexes define the order in which detail Views are displayed for particular master rows.

To get the name of a relationship by its index, the GridView.GetRelationName method can be used.


Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the GetRelationIndex member must not be invoked for these Views. The GetRelationIndex member can only be used with Views that display real data within the Grid Control. Use the following methods to access these Views with which an end user interacts at runtime.
