Need help with Infragistics webgrid bands

Hi all,

My first time here. Let me start by saying that I know absolutely nothing about Infragistics WebGrid. So please excuse me if I am not explaining things with the proper terminology. I have to take over a project for a developer who left. I am trying to create a webgrid with one child band. I am really struggling with this. My first band displays fine. My first question is how do I get the + sign to display on my rows so that I can click this and see the child band? Here is how I define the bands:

Hello Robert,

seems you've posted to a wrong newsgroup. Unfortunately,
we also have no experience with the Infragistics control.

<Bands>
<igtbl:UltraGridBand Key="ITEMS"
ChildBandColumn="Adjustments"></igtbl:UltraGridBand>
<igtbl:UltraGridBand Key="Adjustments"></igtbl:UltraGridBand>
</Bands>

In order to get the + signs to expand the grid, and show the next hierarchy, u need to create a data relationship between your 2 joined tables. do this on the server side.

In the properties of the grid, set the view type (located under display layout) from flat to hierarchical.

assuming that ur tables are joined correctly, the web grid will do the rest for you. infragistic web grids are sluts, feel free to email me if u would like any other tips and tricks. (just wait til u need sortable columns with fixed headers, hope u have a fly swatter)
