How to display just one line from datagrid child
Posted on 2004-09-29
I have a dataset which contains 2 tables in hierarchical form (Products with Shops which sell them). I am displaying them in a datagrid so that the rows show the Products and a special templated column shows the related Shops (in another datagrid) which can be visible/hidden at the press of a button.
All that is fine and dandy but what I really want to do is show the 1st row of the Shops table (for each Product) even if the button is set to hide the details.
I have set up 2 divs so that the button can alternate between them, but I can't find the right format to access the data in the 1st row of the Shops table to fill, for example, a label with the right data. Have tried Container.DataItem.Row.GetChildRows("myRelationship").Item(0).Item(0) and other similar but can't get a format that works.
If I use another embedded datagrid/datalist then I can use Container.DataItem.Row.GetChildRows("myRelationship") as the source but I can't find a way to limit the number of rows displayed to only one.
Can anyone help or suggest an alternative method ?
