How to call event in child datagrid?

I know we can use Itembound event of a datagrid to perform an action.
But when I have child datagrid in a datagrid, how can I raise event for child datagrid?

when binding your child grid, you would wire up the events there.

I am not comfortable with jquery, is there a way we can do this ASP.net itself, instead of using jquery?

Yeah . . .

you can manually add events.

for instance during the parent databind:

{
   myChildGrid.DataSource = MyDataTable;
   myChildGrid.OnDataBind += myChildGrid_DataBind;
   myChildGrid.DataBind();
  // other things to do in parent databind
 
}

protected void MyChildGRid_Databind(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   // add child logic here.
}

as per my understanding above code will add child datagrid to parent. How can I call events for child datagrid. For instance, I am deleting a row in child datagrid, how do I raise this event for child grid from parent grid.

Hi Raj,

You are correct, it would add the events to be fired from the front end.

However if you're deleting the row the event would be fired from the child data grid, not the parent datagrid.

If you wanted to call the child from the parent you could call the same functions, or just update the db and then rebind the data for that row.

I hope that helps.
