Name Type Description
rowHandle Int32

An integer value specifying the handle of the master row whose visible detail is to be obtained.


Type Description

A BaseView descendant representing the detail clone currently visible. null (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the specified master row is collapsed (no details are currently visible).


You can expand a master row and make a particular detail visible using the GridView.SetMasterRowExpandedEx method.

Note that you can also obtain detail Views not currently visible. Use the GridView.GetDetailView method for this purpose. The method obtains the detail specified by its relation index. If the GridView.GetVisibleDetailRelationIndex property value is specified, the GridView.GetDetailView method returns the same value as the GetVisibleDetailView method.

Please refer to the Master-Detail Relationships and Working with Master-Detail Relationships in Code topics for additional information.


Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the GetVisibleDetailView member must not be invoked for these Views. The GetVisibleDetailView 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.
