DataViewManager to filter parent and child relation

Hi Experts,

Here is my dataset:
datatableParent : columnFileId, columnFileName
datatableChild : columnFileId, columnPathId
                               
I want to filter the parent table to get only files in the path I want.
So with my dataviewmanager, I filter like this:
dataViewManager.DataViewSettings[datatablechild].RowFilter="columnPathId='5' "; for example.
But it seems to filter only the child and not the parent.
Any Idea to filter rows in a parent table depending on criteria met in a child table ?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

whoops im backwards ... You can't do it directly through rowfilters because you can only use aggregates ...

PARENT/CHILD RELATION REFERENCING

A parent table may be referenced in an expression by prepending the column name with Parent. For example, the Parent.Price references the parent table's column named Price.

A column in a child table may be referenced in an expression by prepending the column name with Child. However, because child relationships may return multiple rows, you must include the reference to the child column in an aggregate function. For example, Sum(Child.Price) would return the sum of the column named Price in the child table.

If a table has more than one child, the syntax is: Child(RelationName). For example, if a table has two child tables named Customers and Orders, and the DataRelation object is named Customers2Orders, the reference would be:

Instead you would use ... GetParentRows which will get all of the parents for the records in your view http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfsystemdatadatarowclassgetparentrowstopic.asp

Thanks for reply, but I'm not agree with you. The best I can do is to use getparentrows method because the child view is filtered as I want (but the parent view not), so with getparentrows methods I'll be able to retrieve my rows when I filter the child rows.
I want to know if another solution is available and more easy than mine. For example, a solution that filters rows in a parent view depending on criteria met in a child view ?

you cannot use the children in the rowfilter per the information I posted (they are only available within aggregate functions)

I find your post after posting mine. Now I'm agree with you.

Do you think it's possible ?

if there is to be only 1 row in the child sure ... you could filter off the average aggregate of the children ...
