    I have an application that was working fine and then upgraded to the latest version without reading the release notes. I know....dumb...but wanted to keep current.

    The problem is with databinding.
    I have the following business object that has child colletions for ProductCategories and Locations:

    public class Customer
        private string name;
        private List<ProductCategory> categories;
        private List<Location> locations;
        ... with their associated public properties;
    the ProductCategories class also has a child collection of products like so..
    public class ProductCategory
        private string categoryName;
        private List<Product> products;
    public class Product
        private string productName;

    I would like that tree to display the following:
    Customer Name
         Product Categories
              Product Category 1
                   Product Name 1
                   Product Name 2
              Product Category 2
                   Product Name 1
                   Product Name 2
          Location Name 1
          Location Name 2

    When I retrieve the information about the customer the child collections get loaded up in a List<Customer> custList 
    How do I set that up?
    Do I use the RelationBindings colletion? If so, how?

    Hi Nancy,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can achieve the desired behavior by making use of the Load On Demand binding functionality of RadTreeView. Please refer to the attached sample project, which demonstrates the desired functionality. In the example I have switched off the full LazyMode of the control, in order to allow it to load just one level of hierarchy, which handles the expanders of the nodes correctly.

    I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
