I'm about to put a repeater inside a gridview.

Below each row I want the list of all (to that row) related childrows.
Because I use ds_Selecting and get data to the gridview, i want to use this by asp.net.
Because of listing, sorting and so on..
Mostly of the samples i found are dousens of code file codes.

Some best pratice here?

So far I have this code to go from,

                <asp:GridView ID="gv" runat="server" Width="500px" AllowSorting="true" AllowPaging="false" PageSize="50"
                    AutoGenerateColumns="False"  DataSourceID="ds" EnableSortingAndPagingCallbacks="true" CellPadding="3" GridLines="None">
                        <asp:BoundField DataField="OrderItemId" ItemStyle-CssClass="hidden" />
                        <asp:BoundField DataField="Title" SortExpression="Title" ItemStyle-Width="230px" HeaderText="Title"  />
                            <asp:GridView ID="gv2" DataSource="ds2" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
                               <asp:BoundField DataField="Name" HeaderText="Name" />


    protected void ds_Selecting(object sender, LinqDataSourceSelectEventArgs e)
        DataContext db = new DataContext();
        e.Result = Class.GetItems(Current.Class.Id.ToString());
