GridView.IsMasterRowEmptyEx(Int32, Int32) Method

Indicates whether a particular master row’s detail View is empty.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v24.1.dll

NuGet Packages: DevExpress.Win.Grid, DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public virtual bool IsMasterRowEmptyEx(
    int rowHandle,
    int relationIndex


Name Type Description
rowHandle Int32

An integer value identifying the tested master row by its handle.

relationIndex Int32

A zero-based integer specifying the index of the relationship in the data source.


Type Description

true if the specified detail View has no data; otherwise, false.


Note that the method does not only depend on actual presence of data within a particular detail. If the master View’s GridOptionsDetail.EnableMasterViewMode option is disabled, the method returns false regardless of whether the detail is actually empty. In addition, the method raises the GridView.MasterRowEmpty event so that you can manually specify the presence of data within particular details.

If the View has a single detail, it is more convenient to use the GridView.IsMasterRowEmpty method.


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