    TreeView does a good job of representing a One-To-Many hierarchy.  However, I need the ability to represent a Many-To-Many hierarchy.  What I picture is more of a hierarchical spider diagram.  So, I can select a node, it moves into focus and it shows all of the parents (many) and children (many) as legs.  Does anyone have a suggested control that does this?

    I thought of using 2 TreeViews.  So, I'd change the parent TreeView to flow from Right to Left with the selected node in the middle with a Right side orientation.  Then, the children would be represented with the traditional TreeView flowing from Left to Right with the selected node in the middle. 

    This idea would work, but I prefer to have one control that does it all.

    Thanks for your ideas,
    Joel.

    Hi Joel Palmer,

    Currently Telerik does not officially support such component. You should implement the custom logic by yourself to accomplish described scenario. Your approach sound very reasonable and you should be able to employ it without major difficulties.

    Best wishes,
