Add relation using multiple key pairs

I want to create Parent-Child relationship using multiple key pairs.
I have 2 tables as parent and child table.
Is there any possibility to add 4 relation keys (2 from parent table and 2 from child table) in a single relation descriptor?

Thanks and regards,

Hi Rasika,


Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.


If you want to create Parent-Child relationship using multiple key pairs in GridGroupingControl, you can add a multiple child table to single parent table (parent-child relation). In grid, at a time single datasource can be  can referred. Please refer the code,



DataTable parentTable = GetParentTable();

DataTable childTable1 = GetChildTable1();

DataTable childTable2 = GetChildTable2();


GridRelationDescriptor parentToChildRelationDescriptor = new GridRelationDescriptor();

parentToChildRelationDescriptor.ChildTableName = "MyChildTable1";

parentToChildRelationDescriptor.RelationKind = RelationKind.RelatedMasterDetails;

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


GridRelationDescriptor ptc = new GridRelationDescriptor();

ptc.ChildTableName = "MyChildTable2";

ptc.RelationKind = RelationKind.RelatedMasterDetails;

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


// Add relation to ParentTable




// 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("MyChildTable1", childTable1);

this.gridGroupingControl1.Engine.SourceListSet.Add("MyChildTable2", childTable2);


this.gridGroupingControl1.DataSource = parentTable;


Please let us know if you have any concern.
