    I am trying to find a grid that supports artificial hiearchy. for instance, here is my simple table.

    categorytype,category, part
    hose, coolant hose, 1234
    hose, coolant hose, 3433
    hose, heater hose, 5555
    hose, heater hose, 656
    belt, timing belt, b1112
    belt, timing belt, bb333
    belt, serpentine, bs232

    I want to tell the grid to make the first column unique with a + so it only shows:

    and when expanded it expands the second hiarchial set "category" and then expands to part.

    Is this doable?

    Hi Joe,

    The described behavior sounds much like the grouping functionality of the grid view. Have you tried using the GroupDescriptors collection to achieve it? 

    Looking forward to hearing from you!
