Each RadGridView row is capable of presenting additional information by means of a Row Details. The Row Details is a DataTemplate defined on the grid- or row-level and is used for displaying data without affecting the dimensions of the row and the cells within it.
One of the advantages of using a Row Details template is that it can be displayed for the selected row only, thus providing a more compact layout. Another benefit of Row Details is the option of placing the Details Presenter outside the RadGridView, which provides more room for traditional rows without depriving the user of the additional information.
