Right now, I`m having some problem with not showing empty child/nested table. I have something like this:
Table1 has 1 nested table called Table2
Table2 has 2 nested table called Table3 and Table4, but for each row in Table2 only one of the nested tables will have data.

The problem I`m facing right now, is the empty table always show it`s headers, even when it has no data.

I tried using:

grid.ChildGroupOptions.ShowEmptyGroups = False
grid.NestedTableGroupOptions.ShowEmptyGroups = False

and for the GridRelationDescriptor that declares the relation between Table2 and Table3 and Table4 I tried this:

gridRelationDescriptor.ChildTableDescriptor.ChildGroupOptions.ShowEmptyGroups = False
gridRelationDescriptor.ChildTableDescriptor.TopLevelGroupOptions.ShowEmptyGroups = False

Neither worked. Can you guys help me?

Hi Ivan,

You could obtain the KB article 'to conditionally hide the plus minus button when there is no child records to show up' from the following link:


Sample mentioned in the kb can be obtained from the following link:
