    Working with version 2014.1.224.45 timeline. We are using groups to breakout timeline events into classifications.  My client asked if we can nest the groups (child groups).

    For example, the high level group might be "Communications" and then we would have three expanders/groups under that which might have 3 different employee name groups. then under each employee name we would display via timeline events the communications.

    Are nested groups possible?  If so, how?

    Hi Robert,

    RadTimeline for WPF does not support multiple levels of grouping out of the box. However, in case you give us more detailed information on your particular scenario, we might be able to suggest another control, or a solution with integration between two controls - e.g. RadTreeView and RadTimeline.

    Could you provide the following information:
    1. Do you need multiple selected groups or you would use single selection?
    2. Could you give us more details on your concrete scenario (e.g. screenshots) so that we can make sure that RadTimeline is the most suitable control?

    In the meantime, you can check our RadGanttView control and RadScheduleView control.

    Thanks for the response.  our timeline control implementation is pretty complete so we would end up staying with it.

    right now, we can select multiple timeline "events" and we group them up into high level areas.  For example, milestones, status (this one has duration), price details, communications, and so on.  We track we those events took place against a particular "record".

    in the case of communications, certain screens when timeline is shown, there may be a lot of employees who have a lot of communications.  instead of displaying, say 100 events under communications for the 10 employees, AND instead of showing 10 high level communications-employee groupings with 10 events a piece, we wanted 1 group of "communications" with 10 sub groups of each employee.

    with that being said, making 10 groups of "communication - employee" is not unacceptable but we were hoping for something more sophisticated.
