Master / Detail - Nesting

It is possible to nest Master / Detail grids. There is no special configuration required to do this, you just configure another Detail Grid to also act as a Master Grid.

The following snippet illustrates how to achieve nesting by configuring Detail Grids to also act as Master Grids.

// Level 3 (bottom level), Detail Grid only, no Master / Detail configuration
var gridOptionsLevel3 = {
    ...
}

// Level 2, configured to be a Master Grid and use Level 3 grid as Detail Grid,
var gridOptionsLevel2 = {
    masterDetail: true,
    detailCellRendererParams: {
        detailGridOptions: gridOptionsLevel3,
        getDetailRowData: function (params) {
            ...
        }
    }
    ...
}

// Level 1, configured to be a Master Grid and use Level 2 grid as Detail Grid,
var gridOptionsLevel1 = {
    masterDetail: true,
    detailCellRendererParams: {
        detailGridOptions: gridOptionsLevel2,
        getDetailRowData: function (params) {
        ...
        }
    }
    ...
}

Below shows a simple Master Detail setup with two levels of Master Detail. The example is kept short (few rows and columns) so as to focus on the nesting.

 Example: Nesting Master / Detail

The next example is identical to the previous except all the Detail Grid's have property detailRowAutoHeight=true. Notice that this removes all vertical scrolls from all the Detail Grids, leaving just the main Master Grid with a vertical scroll.
