    I am attempting to display a Master->Detail->Subdetail grid. I am getting a problem whereby the SubDetail rows are repeating for each Detail row. I am sure I am doing something wrong but cannot see what. This is the code that I am using to populate the dataset and grid (in my proof of concept code).

    ‘ create the dataset
    ds = New DataSet(“Master-Detail-SubDetail”)

    ‘ add the master table
    Dim colMasterID As New DataColumn(“MasterID”, GetType(Integer))
    colMasterID.Unique = True
    ds.Tables(“Master”).Columns.Add(“Description”, GetType(String))
    ‘ Made no difference
    ‘ ds.Tables(“Master”).PrimaryKey = New DataColumn() {ds.Tables(“Master”).Columns(“MasterID”)}
    ‘ colMasterID.AutoIncrement = True
    ‘ colMasterID.AutoIncrementSeed = 1
    ‘ colMasterID.AutoIncrementStep = 1

    ‘ add the detail table
    Dim colDetailID As New DataColumn(“DetailID”, GetType(Integer))
    colDetailID.Unique = True
    ds.Tables(“Detail”).Columns.Add(“MasterID”, GetType(Integer))
    ds.Tables(“Detail”).Columns.Add(“Description”, GetType(String))
    ‘ Made no difference
    ‘ ds.Tables(“Detail”).PrimaryKey = New DataColumn() {ds.Tables(“Detail”).Columns(“DetailID”)}
    ‘ colDetailID.AutoIncrement = True
    ‘ colDetailID.AutoIncrementSeed = 1
    ‘ colDetailID.AutoIncrementStep = 1

    ‘ add the subdetail table
    Dim colSubDetailID As New DataColumn(“SubDetailID”, GetType(Integer))
    colSubDetailID.Unique = True
    ds.Tables(“SubDetail”).Columns.Add(“DetailID”, GetType(Integer))
    ds.Tables(“SubDetail”).Columns.Add(“Description”, GetType(String))
    ‘ Made no difference
    ‘ ds.Tables(“SubDetail”).PrimaryKey = New DataColumn() {ds.Tables(“SubDetail”).Columns(“SubDetailID”)}
    ‘ colSubDetailID.AutoIncrement = True
    ‘ colSubDetailID.AutoIncrementSeed = 1
    ‘ colSubDetailID.AutoIncrementStep = 1

    ‘ set up the relationship between Master -> Detail tables
    Dim relMaster2Detail As New DataRelation(“Master->Detail”, _
    ds.Tables(“Master”).Columns(“MasterID”), _
    relMaster2Detail.Nested = True

    ‘ set up the relationship between Detail -> SubDetail tables
    Dim relDetail2SubDetail As New DataRelation(“Detail->SubDetail”, _
    ds.Tables(“Detail”).Columns(“DetailID”), _
    relDetail2SubDetail.Nested = True

    ‘ add some records for our viewing pleasure
    Dim intMasterID As Integer = 1
    Dim intDetailID As Integer = 1
    Dim intSubDetailID As Integer = 1

    For intMasterRow As Integer = 1 To 2
    ds.Tables(“Master”).Rows.Add(New Object() {intMasterID, String.Format(“Master Row {0}”, intMasterID)})

    For intDetailRow As Integer = 1 To 3
    ds.Tables(“Detail”).Rows.Add(New Object() {intDetailID, intMasterID, String.Format(“Master Row {0} Detail Row {1}”, intMasterID, intDetailID)})

    For intSubDetailRow As Integer = 1 To 4
    ds.Tables(“SubDetail”).Rows.Add(New Object() {intSubDetailID, intDetailID, String.Format(“Master Row {0} Detail Row {1} SubDetail Row {2}”, intMasterID, intDetailID, intSubDetailID)})
    intSubDetailID += 1

    intDetailID += 1

    intMasterID += 1

    ‘ save as XML so I can see what’s been entered into the dataset
    IO.File.WriteAllText(“c:\test.xml”, ds.GetXml())

    ‘ set up the grid

    grdMaster.SynchronizeDetailGrids = True

    ‘ set up the grid for table: Master
    grdMaster.SetDataBinding(ds.Tables(“Master”), “”)
    grdMaster.Columns(“Description”).Width = 400

    ‘ set up a detail grid for table: Detail
    Dim grdDetail As New Xceed.Grid.DetailGrid
    grdDetail.SetDataBinding(ds.Tables(“Master”), “Master->Detail”)
    grdDetail.HeaderRows.Add(New Xceed.Grid.ColumnManagerRow)

    ‘ set up a detail grid for table: SubDetail
    Dim grdSubDetail As New Xceed.Grid.DetailGrid
    grdSubDetail.SetDataBinding(ds.Tables(“Detail”), “Detail->SubDetail”)
    grdSubDetail.HeaderRows.Add(New Xceed.Grid.ColumnManagerRow)

    ‘ add and update the detail grids


    Many thanks for any assistance.

    I recommend checking this previous thread that shows a lot more on Master-Detail:

    Was your problem ever resolved? I am having similar symptoms and would like to know what worked for you.

    Appreciate all pointers.

    I am also facing this problems, that the SubDetail rows are repeating for each Detail row. When I insert one SubDetail row it inserts into every detail element.

    Is there any workaround for this problem?

    I’ve found an error in my code.

    You have to use such string for DataMember for SubDetail:
    but not

    If you use “DetailTable.Relation2” for SubDetail DataMember you will get the same problem as specified above.
