    I am looking for an example that loads a treeview from data that is not self-referencing (no ParentID field) but with specific category levels.  If my data looks like:
    ID   Lastname     Firstname  City       State
    1     Davolio         Nancy          Seattle   WA
    2     Fuller            Andrew        Tacoma  WA
    3     Washington George          Dallas     TX
    4     Leverling      Janet            Kirkland  WA
    5     Peacock       Margaret      Seattle    WA
    6     Doe              Jane             Austin     TX
    7     Doe              John             Dallas     TX

    … I want it to come out like this:
     └ Austin
              └ Jane Doe
    └ Dallas
              └ George Washington
              └ John Doe
      └ Kirkland
                └ Janet Leverling
      └ Seattle
                └ Nancy Davolio
                └ Margaret Peacock
       └ Tacoma
                └ Andrew Fuller

    I also would like it to load on demand (JsonResult) as each state and city gets expanded.
    Is there an example on how to build the tree like this?

    I figured out how to load the tree using the TreeViewItemModel in the controller and binding to it in the view, but it loads all nodes at once.  Any clues on how to make each level load on demand?

    Hello Jesse,


    The loadOnDemand option indicates whether the child DataSources should be fetched lazily when parent groups get expanded. 


    When the kendo UI TreeView is bound to remote data source this option is set to true, so the child items are loaded when the parent node is expanded.
