Hello,

I am pretty new to WPF and Telerik and have a question about data binding.

My business object is a COM object as root of a tree of further COM objects (parent-child hierarchy (any depth)).

How would I bind ideally this data structure to a TreeListView control without duplicating any data with best performance? The columns of the TreeListView control need to be created at runtime based on some XML customization file. Each column displays a particular attribute of the COM object.

My current solution uses a binding via a value converter where I retrieve the correct data (parameter passed to the value converter) from my COM object. It works OK, but has many drawbacks: No out-of-the-box support for sorting, filtering, ... performance could be better ...

Any help on the best way to implement a binding with good performance without duplicating data is very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Markus

Hello Markus,

You can check our online documentation on TreeListView.  You need to consider using the RadTreeListView for displaying only a homogeneous data. 
You can also check the topic on Performance.
As the RadTreeListView inherits the RadGridView it shares the same API, therefore you can find RadGridView's topic on Populating With Data useful.
