Hi there.

I have a sfDaaGrid showing a list a cities and a I want to show the state that city belongs. I would prefer not to use a master-detail view, just add another column mapping "city.state.name".

Something like this:
ID     CITY            STATE
1       New York     NY 

Is that possible?

Thanks for the help!

Hi Rafael, 

Thanks for using Syncfusion product. 

You can able to add the column which is in nested object by using the below code snippet for your reference. 

sfDataGrid1.Columns.Add(new GridTextColumn() { MappingName = "Category.CategoryName" });   

And also you can refer the below forum to achieve your requirement in both programmatic and auto generated columns.  

If we misunderstood your requirement, please provide more information regarding the requirement. This would help us to proceed further.
