Hi team, I am currently working on a project that requires a form to be completed to gather project briefing information.

I am using tables at the moment to recreate a paper based form using ASP.NET (C#). The problem is that the form is big and is begining to look unprofessional. Is there a way of developing a datagrid that has sections that I can roll up (using a plus sign) and roll down (using a minus sign), just like you would in a tree view. If this is best acheived in a component, then please advise.

Cheers

Wayne Atherton

try Denis Bauer's hierargrid found at http://www.denisbauer.com/ASPNETControls/HierarGrid.aspx
Ive used it before and its very good.

Theres also Microsofts Treeview control available at http://www.asp.net/ControlGallery/ControlDetail.aspx?Control=75&tabindex=2 if your clients will be running IE

If it's a form I would suggest to make those tables as SERVER control and then you can dynamically show/hide those tables that you have!

You just need to add a button for different tables. Based on the click you can display/hide tables!

Just right click the table in your design view and click on "Run As Surver"

You'll be able to access your table from code behind after that.

After making Table as 'Run as Server Control' you can simply use .Visible property of table to Show/Hide them like:

tblProjectBrifSection1.Visible = true;

OR

tblProjectBrifSection1.Visible = false;
