Reference to ChildGrid's GridComponent

Thread ID:

Asked On June 5, 2019 02:13 PM UTC

I am using nested Grids, I am using custom toolbar items to add advanced features, I need to know which records have been selected.

For the parent Grid I am using "REF" in the grid definition, then grid.getSelectedRecords().
I can't do the same thing for the childs. The "REF" in the definition doesn't seem to work, and neither does grid.childgrid.getSelectedRecords().

You can find the code used attached.

Hi Matteo, 
Greetings from Syncfusion, 
You can achieve your requirement by getting the instance in the toolbar click event of the corresponding Grid. Pleas refer to the below code example and sample link for more information. 
export class Hierarchy extends SampleBase { 
    constructor() { 
        this.toolbarSettings = ['Add', 'Edit', 'Delete', 
        { text: 'Copy', prefixIcon: 'e-copy', id: 'cpy' }, 
        { text: 'Attach', prefixIcon: 'e-add', id: 'att' }, 
    this.sequenceToolbarSettings = [ 
        { text: 'Attach', prefixIcon: 'e-link-icon', id: 'att' }, 
        { text: 'Detach', prefixIcon: 'e-unlink-icon', id: 'det' }, 
        this.childGrid = { 
            dataSource: orderDatas, 
            queryString: 'EmployeeID', 
            toolbar: this.sequenceToolbarSettings, 
            toolbarClick: this.sequenceClickHandler,  
                                           .  .  . 
    clickHandler = (args) => { 
      if(args.item.id =='att'){ 
        let asm = this.grid.getSelectedRecords(); 
    sequenceClickHandler = (args) => { 
      if(args.item.id =='att'){ 
      var seqGrid = parentsUntil(args.originalEvent.target,"e-grid").ej2_instances[0]; 
        let seq = seqGrid.getSelectedRecords(); 
    render() { 
        return (<div className='control-pane'> 
                <div className='control-section'> 
                    <GridComponent dataSource={employeeData} childGrid={this.childGrid}  
                    ref={g => this.grid = g} 
                            .  .  . 
                        <Inject services={[DetailRow, Toolbar, Page, Sort]}/> 
render(<Hierarchy />, document.getElementById('sample')); 
Please get back to us, if you need further assistance.
