Subgrid - Read / Write FetchXml / LayoutXml


In CRM 2011 there's no supported way to get / set the FetchXml and LayoutXml of a subgrid.

I need this feature to ensure that queries and layouts run correctly.

At least a supported way to read the FetchXml of a subgrid would be appreciated.

Currently the FetchXML in a subgrid can be amended using an unsupported way - but the FetchXML itself and also the ability to refresh a sub grid is supported - the ability to amend the FetchXML is massively useful as it allows all sorts of things otherwisae very difficult (for example viewing all activities in a single sub grid - using the Activity Party, or viewing "grandchildren" where there are two 1:n relationships (Entity A:B and then B:C - seeing all of C from A)
