    I am having an issue with TreeList not returning any results whenever I use a string DataKeyNames value. For type int it works as expected.

    For the sake of this example, I used an int key but simply added a facade string GET on top of it to verify that once string data type is used it fails.

    Am I doing something incorrectly?

    Stumbled onto the answer myself. The documentation explains it: TreeList Structure

    I overlooked a rather important detail:

    1. If the key fields are of value type or string, the root items are either:
      • items with ParentKeyValue set to the default value of the type
      • items for which the parent key value is equal to the key value
      Items with parent key value which does not fulfil the above requirement, and have no parent item (e.g. their parent key value does not correspond to any other item key value) are not included in the resolved data source of the treelist at all.
    2. If the key fields are complex objects, a recursive check on their properties is performed until the above rule is met.

    Once I modified my code to use default(T) wherever root elements have a parent, things began working.
