Hi Jone,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Please refer the following code which explains parent child relation with two table. Make use of this code in your application accordingly.


DataTable parentTable = GetParentTable();

DataTable childTable = GetChildTable();

DataTable grandChildTable = GetGrandChildTable();

// Manually specify relations in grouping engine. The DataSet does not need to have any DataRelations.

GridRelationDescriptor parentToChildRelationDescriptor = new GridRelationDescriptor();

parentToChildRelationDescriptor.ChildTableName = "MyChildTable"; parentToChildRelationDescriptor.RelationKind = RelationKind.RelatedMasterDetails;

parentToChildRelationDescriptor.RelationKeys.Add("parentID", "ParentID");

// Add relation to ParentTable


GridRelationDescriptor childToGrandChildRelationDescriptor = new GridRelationDescriptor();

childToGrandChildRelationDescriptor.ChildTableName = "MyGrandChildTable"; childToGrandChildRelationDescriptor.RelationKind = RelationKind.RelatedMasterDetails;

childToGrandChildRelationDescriptor.RelationKeys.Add("childID", "ChildID");

// Add relation to ChildTable


// Register any DataTable/IList with SourceListSet, so that RelationDescriptor can resolve the name

this.gridGroupingControl1.Engine.SourceListSet.Add("MyParentTable", parentTable);

this.gridGroupingControl1.Engine.SourceListSet.Add("MyChildTable", childTable);

this.gridGroupingControl1.Engine.SourceListSet.Add("MyGrandChildTable", grandChildTable);

this.gridGroupingControl1.DataSource = parentTable;

Please let me know if this helps you.

Hi Jone,

By default you can’t set a celltype for GridGroupingControl as LinkLabel, but you can achieve it by creating a custom renderer and assign it to the Grid.

Please make use the custom renderer in the below link and include it in the Grid’s CellModels and assign it as celltype for the columns.



Here is the code to assign the custom cell as celltype for a specific column

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableModel.CellModels.Add("LinkLabel",new LinkLabelCellModel(this.gridGroupingControl1.TableModel));

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns[Column name].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.CellType = "LinkLabel";

Please let me know if you have any concerns
