Master Detail Grid *

* Please note this feature is only available in paid versions.

The phpGrid went extra miles to make creating the master detail datagrid a super simple task. There is essentially a simple function to set_masterdetail() to set the master detail relationship between two datagrids, and have them work interactively.

The detail grid is a regular phpGrid object and can have the same methods like any other datagrid, such as description title, sort, and update etc. The detail grid renders dynamically based on the row selected in parent grid. A master grid can have one detail grid one or more detail datagrids.

Note that you can have master and detail grids from the same database table as long as different SQL alias are used.
