    You could use a VIEW for the composite key join if you wanted.

    I'm not clear on the point about getting extra data though? If it's coming from the database, then you'd just use another Field like all the other columns. If it's a calculated value then use columns.render to compute it on the client-side.

    its come form the database, but from different table,
    and i cant use join!
    so my question if i can add a field and then get the value by sql query?

    I don't get it - why can't you use a join? You'd need a SELECT statement for every single row in the table - if you had only 1000 rows in the table that's 1001 SELECT queries just to display it!

    That is not something that Editor facilities I'm afraid.

    hey Allan, maybe you didn't understand me and i didn't understand you
    this is my code for get data from trip table

    [AcceptVerbs(HttpVerbs.Get | HttpVerbs.Post)]
            public ActionResult GetDataTrip(Enums.JsonSortType type, int id)
            {
                var settings = Properties.Settings.Default;
                var formData = HttpContext.ApplicationInstance.Context.Request;
    
                using (var db = new DataTables.Database(settings.DbType, settings.DbConnection))
                {
                    var editor = new Editor(db, "Trip", "Trip_Id");
                    if (type == PegasusOperation.Common.Classes.Enums.JsonSortType.TripByTour)
                    {
                        editor.Where("Trip.Trip_Id", id);
                    }
                    editor.Model<Model.Trip>("Trip")
                        .Field(new Field("Trip.Trip_Id")

                    .Field(new Field("Trip.Requires_Flights", typeof(bool))
                    )
                    .MJoin(new MJoin("Countries")
                    .Link("Trip.Trip_Id", "Trip_Countries.Trip_Id")

                    ));
                    editor.MJoin(new MJoin("DayTrip")
                   .Link("Trip.Trip_Id", "Trip_DayTrip.Trip_Id")
                   .Link("DayTrip.DayTrip_Id", "Trip_DayTrip.DayTrip_Id")

                    editor.Debug(true);
    
                    //// Pre functions
                    editor.PreEdit += (sender, e) => prev_Values = getRawData(e.Id, db);
                    editor.PreRemove += (sender, e) => prev_Values = getRawData(e.Id, db);
    
    
                    // Post functions
                    editor.PostCreate += (sender, e) =>
                    {
                        var values = getRawData(e.Id, db);
                        Functions._LogChange2(db, "מסלולי טיול", "create", e.Id, values, prev_Values);
                    };
                    editor.PostEdit += (sender, e) => 
                    {
                        var values = getRawData(e.Id, db);
                        Functions._LogChange2(db, "מסלולי טיול", "edit", e.Id, values, prev_Values);
                    };
                    editor.PostRemove += (sender, e) => Functions._LogChange2(db, "מסלולי טיול", "remove", e.Id, e.Values, prev_Values);
    
                    editor.Process(formData.Unvalidated.Form);
                    DtResponse data = editor.Data();
                    return Json(data, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
    
                    }
                }
    

    now i want to get from Trip_dayTrip table(photo attached) the count of days for each trip and sent it to client,beacuse i cant used left join to this table how can i get the data? (with entity framework it easy, just trip.Trip_dayTrip.count)

    Thank you - the image clears things up a lot!

    With the .NET Editor libraries you'd use Mjoin for this. That will perform a n-m join and you can simply use the .length of the resulting array to display the count. The many file upload example uses the length for display of how many images belong to a row.
