Expand only current item of the Grid and programmatically collapse all others


Product Grid for Blazor


I have a Grid with hierarchy enabled. When I expand one row, I want to programmatically collapse all other expanded rows.


  1. Handle the Grid OnRowExpand event. It provides argument of type GridRowExpandEventArgs with a Item field that refers to the currently expanded Grid item.
  2. Set the ShouldRender property of the GridRowExpandEventArgs argument to true.
  3. Use the Grid State to programmatically set its ExpandedItems property. Set ExpandedItems to a List<T> that should only contain the currently expanded item. This will result in collapsing all previously expanded items.
<TelerikGrid @ref="@GridRef"
            var employee = context as MainModel;
            <TelerikGrid Data="employee.Orders">
                    <GridColumn Field="OrderId"></GridColumn>
                    <GridColumn Field="DealSize"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field="Id"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field="Name"></GridColumn>

@code {
    public TelerikGrid<MainModel> GridRef { get; set; }
    List<MainModel> SalesTeamMembers { get; set; }

    async Task OnExpand(GridRowExpandEventArgs args)
        args.ShouldRender = true;

        GridState<MainModel> desiredState = GridRef.GetState();

        desiredState.ExpandedItems = new List<MainModel> { args.Item as MainModel };

        await GridRef.SetStateAsync(desiredState);

    //data generation and models
    protected override void OnInitialized()
        SalesTeamMembers = GenerateData();

    private List<MainModel> GenerateData()
        List<MainModel> data = new List<MainModel>();
        for (int i = 1; i <= 30; i++)
            MainModel mdl = new MainModel { Id = i, Name = $"Name {i}" };
            mdl.Orders = Enumerable.Range(1, 3).Select(x => new DetailsModel { OrderId = x, DealSize = x ^ i }).ToList();
        return data;

    public class MainModel
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public List<DetailsModel> Orders { get; set; }

    public class DetailsModel
        public int OrderId { get; set; }
        public double DealSize { get; set; }
