View Full Version : How to design a grid within a grid control?

Thank you for taking the time to view my thread. I am attempting to create a grid within a grid solution. More specifically, I am trying to model this after the ADO concept of a Shaped Record Set. Here is a screenshot of what I want the end result to simulate:


I have been using ExtJS for some time (although I am admittedly not a power-user by any means). I honestly do not know where to begin doing something like this. At first I was toying with the idea of using XTemplates to override the standard row object - but this seems like it might not be the right path to go down.

If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate the input. I am simply looking for some conceptual design/architecture to help me arrive at a solution.

Thank you for reading my post, I appreciate it!

All you really have to do is create a grid and render it into an element of the main grid. You will have to deal with sizing and selection.
