Hi, how can i set checkboxes in a Celltype = CheckBox Column to state checked ?? I already tried true and false according to the values given the CheckBoxOptions Section in the designer but with no luck. Am i missing anything ??

Additionally, how can i determine if the current record is a record of the child table or not ?? rec.ParentRecord is always null. Thanks

If this is a GroupingGrid, then you set values in a checkbox by using record.SetValue to set the appropriate value in the underlying data. If the System.Type of this column is bool, then you would have code like rec.SetValue("MyBoolField", true). I am not sure what you know when you want to find our whether a record is in a child or not. Here is code you can use for TableControlCurrentCellMoved.
private void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellMoved(object sender, GridTableControlCurrentCellMovedEventArgs e)
	GridCurrentCell cc = e.TableControl.CurrentCell;
	GridTableCellStyleInfo style = e.TableControl.Model[cc.RowIndex, cc.ColIndex];
		&& ( style.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType == GridTableCellType.AlternateRecordFieldCell ||
				style.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType == GridTableCellType.RecordFieldCell))

Hi, it is a GridGroupingControl. I did as you suggested. I set the Celltype of the column to Checkbox and the CellValueType to System.Boolean. Now I use record.SetValue("CheckBoxColumn", true). But my boxes still remain unchecked. What can the problem be ?

Depending upon the edit state of the record, you may have to call record.BeginEdit and record.EndEdit to make the changes. Here is a little sample. When you make a row current. the bool value is set true in tableControlCurrentCellMoved. There is also a button that will flip the bool value in the current row. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/GGC_BookMark_bfd0a948.zip

Yes it works on the parent table. But when i try to do the same thing on the nested child table then none of the cells gets checked. I think this is because i can''t reference a child column using the rec.SetValue("childCheckRow", true) command. Can you tell me how i can get a reference to a child column or explicitly loop only the child columns ? I''m working in the ctor of the form, so i''m looping all records using GGC.Table.Records Collection. thanks

You have to recursively access the nestedtables to locate a record in a nested table. Here is a sample that flips a boolean value on teh current record whether it is in a parent table or the child table. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/GGC_BookMark_de4c1ecc.zip

I get an error in your sample in line: int offset = gnt.ChildTable.GetFirstRecord().GetRowIndex()- gnt.ChildTable.GetRowIndex(); Message:''Syncfusion.Grouping.Record'' does not contain a definition for ''GetRowIndex'' could you please tell me a way to correct this ?

What version of our library are you using? I ran the sample using

same as you: All assemblies except for Syncfusion.WebServer are listed in the GAC as Version Suggestions

I was using a debug build of our That method is exposed in the debug build but not in the release build. I will have to discuss why this was done with Stefan, the grid architect. There must be another way to get at this information that I am not seeing. Anyway, for now, to get that code working in release, you can add this method to the form class,
public int GetRowIndex(Element el)
	return this.gridGroupingControl1.Engine.Table.NestedDisplayElements.IndexOf(el);
Then replace the offending line with this line: int offset = GetRowIndex((GridRecord)gnt.ChildTable.GetFirstRecord())- GetRowIndex(gnt.ChildTable);
