    Team,

    I am in evaluation phase to go or no go with Telerik controls. I need your help and quick response for below.

    Currently we have an Windows Application and using many custom grids. Now we are doing Web version for the same and started evaluating the Telerik grid (ASP.NET AJAX) will fit to our web version or not but I was stuck with a scenario, 

    Scenario as follows:
    My DB result set comes with string hierarchy attached image (db_resultset.gif) and also attached (windows UI.gif) for the same which gives you better clarity.

    Is telerik grid supports to accept string hierarchy to build the grid?  
    If yes, Could please provide a sample for it and give some URL to refer.
    If not,  By extending the telerik grid functionality can we achieve this? or do we need to change the data structure and which data structure telerik grid will support to build the hierarchy?

    I am waiting for your reply.  Please help.

    Thanks,
    Anjan

    To give more clarify on the Data Structure:

    Above screenshot shows 2-level hierarchy considering Label as "parent" with Task as "child". This is an example with 2-level.

    There are some other grids with n-level hierarchy level and structure changes accordingly. Also doing DML operations on these grids.

    Thanks,
    Anjan

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Based on the provided information it seems that your scenario could be achieved with self-referenced hierarchical RadGrid as shown in this online demo application and as described in this help topic.


    About the DML support, automatic operations are not supported with this type of hierarchy, however, you could implement manual CRUD operations as shown in this help topic.

    I hope the provided information helps. Let me know if you need further assistance.

    All the best,
    Andrey
