    Here is the problem :

    I have a binding source (bsCustomers) filled with neccessary data from the database with entity framework.

    When i checked the bsCustomers i can see the values are not NULL.
    My treeview control`s (rtvCustomers) datasource is bsCustomers and I want to assign rtvCustomers.DisplayMember to Name field which is in tbContacts. 

    bsCustomer  has --> tbContact.
    tbContact has --> Code, Name.

    So when i say

    this.tvCustomers.RootRelationDisplayName = "Customers";  
    this.tvCustomers.DisplayMember = "tbContact.Name";  
    thisthis.tvCustomers.DataSource = this.bsCustomers; 

    it doesnt work. (In radgridview such assignment ("tbContact.Name") works properly.)

    As a solution in NodeCollectionChange

    void Nodes_CollectionChanged(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.Data.NotifyCollectionChangedEventArgs e)  
                    if (((RadTreeNode)e.NewItems[0]).Level == 0)  
                    ((RadTreeNode)e.NewItems[0]).Text = ((Customer)this.bsCustomers[e.NewStartingIndex]).tbContact.Name;  

    and it worked. I filled the treeview with customer Names. But i guess there must be another solution.

    So is there any other solution to get treeview filled with Names?

    Hello Onur Tezic,

    Currently, RadTreeView does not support binding to subproperties. We will implement this feature in one of our next versions. I have logged this as a feature request in our issue tracking system.

    Your Telerik points have been updated for the feedback.
