Hi Experts!

Is it possible to create a grid, within another grid. In other words, i need a basic parent grid, with rows in. Each row needs to be expandable (another grid), and contain +/- 8 rows, with 10 columns.

Every row should basically be an expandable grid/data table - like object.

How can i achieve this?

    .NET Frame work, doesn't support this kind of data grid system.

    Try using different combination controls, like: combobox with data grid, or listbox with data grid, or listview with datagrid.

    One way to achieve this is to have a second smaller grid that gets filled on demand.
    On cell DblClick, fill the grid, make visible and position over cell. Click on smaller grid to set visible to False.
    This is similar to in-place editing using a TextBox control in conjunction with a Grid control.
