Perhaps I just didn't find it in the projects and in this forum....

I need to go through all the child tables and change their appearances. For instance I may need to toggle off their insertion row, or change their background color or make them editable or not editable. But I am having a hard time finding some example code that shows me how to do this. Could someone help?

Hi David,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

#1. To toggle of the insertion behavior in the child grid, you can make use of the following code which has been exposed through check box.

private void checkBox1_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
this.gridGroupingControl1.GetTableDescriptor("MyChildTable").AllowNew = this.ChkToggle.Checked;

#2. To change the background color, use the below code.

this.gridGroupingControl1.GetTableDescriptor("MyChildTable").Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.BackColor = Color.Crimson;

#3. Toggle the editing of a child table can be achieved through the “QueryCellStyleInfo” event with the following code.

this.gridGroupingControl1.GetTable("MyChildTable").QueryCellStyleInfo += new GridTableCellStyleInfoEventHandler(Form1_QueryCellStyleInfo);

void Form1_QueryCellStyleInfo(object sender, GridTableCellStyleInfoEventArgs e)
if (e.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.Kind == DisplayElementKind.Record) // check if it is record.
e.Style.ReadOnly = !this.ChkEdit.Checked; // toggle the edit beahviour through check box.

Please refer the following sample which illustrates the above.


Please let me know if you have any other concerns.
