Hierarchical Bindings

Hierarchical binding can be used to create the Grid with parent and child relation, this facilitate you to view the child records for a particular row by clicking on the Expander button present in first column of each grid row. This can be enabled by defining childGrid and childGrid.queryString. childGrid is to define options of child and childGrid.queryString is to define the relation between parent and child grid.

If the foreign key column name differs for parent and child grid then use childGrid.foreignKeyField property of child grid. Refer here for more information.

NOTE

The Grid’s responsive and exporting support is not applicable for Hierarchical binding.
