I’m evaluating Telerik for my company and here is what I’m trying to accomplish.  If you have any suggestions please let me know.

 

I’ve got an org chart hierarchy of divisions, departments within divisions, department heads, and then employees under department heads.  Each level should be expandable / collapsible and each level has about 10 financial columns associated to it and the columns should line up and total.  The financial columns at the department head and employee level are editable. 

 

Option A) I’ve tried this with a self referencing hierarchy grid but the columns do not line up.  The exact problem with the hierarchy grid method is discussed in this forum.

Option B) I’ve also tried this with the grid grouping.  The overall grid hierarchy looks good but I don’t know how to total within the aligned columns at the parent levels.  It seems I can only format a line of text on the row (not each column).

 

Option C) I’m now looking into drawing the entire grid myself including the expandable column and hiding and displaying rows with client javascript functions, but I’m hesitant with this approach.

 

Anyway, if you have any suggestions please let me know.

Hello normalham2,

Thank you for the detailed explanation.

If you go for the self-referencing hierarchy presentation, the project from the knowledge base article pointed below illustrates how to align the nested levels under their parent:

Alternatively, you may consider using standard hierarchy and align the columns from the detail tables as demonstrated here.
