    I'm unable to map hasChildren model property to a custom field (in my case, I'm calling Web API method that returns array of custom objects, each having HasChildren set to true/false). I have tried:

    hasChildren: "HasChildren" 

    but it does not work in 2015.2.624 version of Kendo UI. However, this does work for HierarchicalDataSource (TreeView).

    This DOES work (I consider this a work-around for now):

    1) Setting the name of the property in my C# code to hasChildren (lowercase H)

    Is this a known issue?

    Hello Bojan,


    Indeed currently the TreeListDataSource expects hasChildren. The only way you could project HasChildren to hasChildren is to define such field in the model:


    fields: {
     id: { type: "number" },
     parentId: { type: "number", defaultValue: 0 },
     hasChildren: { type: "boolean", field: "HasChildren" }


    Example - http://dojo.telerik.com/@rusev/uMonE
