Not that I would normally do this, I'm actually just goofing around with .NET's DataGridView...

but I have class, Person, that has a List<Address> as a property.

I'm creating a BindingSource with a
DataSource=new List<Person>();

OK, fine, the grid displays the properties in Person. But gee, wouldn't it be snazzy if the grid were smart enough to also expose Address as a drill down for each Person record?

I suppose that's asking for too much, right? I'll be very curious if DevExpress' grid supports the behavior that I want. Does anyone know if .NET's DataGridView supports this concept though?

Thanks!

AFAIK the DataGridView doesn't support this functionality OOTB, but you can of course add it. Unfortunately this control doesn't have an event like the webform onrowdatabound event where you could just add the child rows when detected. I guess you'd have to do it the OnPaint, or maybe RowPrePaint?
