Hi,I have a hierarchical grid (two levels:parent rows and child rows).
On the left of the rows I have checkbox. My problem is to read one specific cell. Infact in the table I have:

Data | Mail | State | Id

and in javascript I would like to read the content of cell "id".(is more complex of this  but in brief this is the problem; I can't use c# code for this specific case but I must use only java).
Thanks in advance

Hi Andrea,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

We are glad to let you know that your requirement can be achieved. We have used RowBtnTemplate to add the Check Box to grid. We have hidden the header check boxes using java script. We have displayed the particular cell content, while check the checkbox.

Please refer the below code snippet.

<script type="text/javascript">

function BeginRequestHandler(sender, args) {

                                    $('input[id *="header"]').hide(); //To remove the check box from header




            $(function () {

                                    $('input[id *="header"]').hide(); //to remove the check box from header


            function checkchanged(oData) {

                                    var gridTable = GetEGridTable($get('<%= GridGroupingControl1.ClientID %>'));

                                    var gridObj = gridTable.GetGridObj();

                                    var colIdx = 0;

                                    for (tableName in gridObj.gridTables) {

                                    for (var i in gridObj.gridTables[tableName].visibleColumns) {

                                                var column = gridObj.gridTables[tableName].visibleColumns[i];

                                                if (oData.id.indexOf("NT") == -1) {

                                                             //Parent Grid

                                                             if (column.name == "Customer ID") {

                                                                          if (gridTable.showRowHeader)

                                                                                     colIdx = column.index - 1;


                                                                                      colIdx = column.index;




                                                else {

                                                              //Child Grid

                                                              if (column.name == "Ship Name") {

                                                                        if (gridTable.showRowHeader)

                                                                                     colIdx = column.index - 1;


                                                                                    colIdx = column.index;




                                    } //end of loop


                        if (oData.checked) {

                                    selText = $(oData.parentElement).siblings().eq(colIdx).text();






<syncfusion:GridGroupingControl EnableCallbacks="false" ID="GridGroupingControl1"

        <TableDescriptor AllowFilter="False" AllowNew="false" AllowEdit="false">


                        <asp:Checkbox ID="cbSelect" runat="server" onclick="checkchanged(this);"/>





For your convenience we have attached the sample. Could you please use this sample and let us know if this is helpful.

Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
