DetailDescriptorBase.ContentTemplate Property

Gets or sets the template specifying the entire or partial content of a Detail.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Grid
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v17.1.Core.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: DataTemplate
A System.Windows.DataTemplate object specifying the Detail section's content.

Expanded Remarks

The DataContext for the specified template is the master record, so you can easily display additional information about the parent object.

ContentTemplate is mostly used with the ContentDetailDescriptor, since it is specially designed to define this Detail section's content. This is how non-grid details are displayed within a master-detail GridControl.

When using a DataControlDetailDescriptor or a TabViewDetailDescriptor, ContentTemplate can also be used to display additional information above the Detail Data Control or above Tabs, as shown in the following image.

Expanded Example

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E4042.

This example demonstrates how to display a memo field and a ChartControl within grid details. While the memo field displays data from the master record, the chart control is bound to the detail data table.

Grid Controls in this sample use a TabViewDetailDescriptor with both ContentDetailDescriptor and DataControlDetailDescriptor showing the same custom content. This is done by assigning the same template to the detail descriptors' ContentTemplate properties. Note that when using a DataControlDetailDescriptor, the template is displayed above the detail grid.

Two grid controls are included in this sample to demonstrate how to setup custom details in either XAML or code.
