Detail Item Template

The DetailItemTemplate is considered a part of the GridDataItem and is rendered in a new row right after the GridDataItem itself.

The template is instantiated within a single cell that spans over the whole row/item.

      <telerik:RadGrid RenderMode="Lightweight" runat="server" ID="RadGrid1" AutoGenerateColumns="false">
            Text content
            <asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("DataField1") %>' />
            <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Unbound label" />
            <%# Eval("DataField2") %>

There is a new item type in RadGrid - GridItemType.DetailTemplateItem. Due to the fact that the GridDetailTemplateItem is an integral part of the GridDataItem, ItemCreated and ItemDataBound events won’t be triggered when it is created/bound. It is possible, however to get all items of type GridDetailTemplateItem by using the GetItems() method of the GridTableView.

Hiding the GridDataItem will hide the GridDetailTemplateItem.
