Hyperlink, Label and TextBox controls are available. Drag the desired control into the detailed pane.  I have added the row details as shown in the below picture. Background color of these controls has been changed for better understanding.


  • Next step is to bind these controls to the desired columns.
  • For search grid, we have 8 data types (String, Integer, Decimal, Date, DateTime, Image, ImageURL and FileDownload). All the link data types (ImageURL and File Download) must be bind to the “Hyperlink” control in the Details View Tool bar. All other data types can be bind to either TextBox or Label controls.
  • After configure a search (Refer Section 4 for how to configure a search), map the row details controls with the desired columns. Click on the row detail control which we drag into the form in the above step. Property section will be opened. Select the column which we want to map with the details view control, from the “Data Binding” dropdownbox as shown in Figure 3-5.
