    Hi Telerik team,
    Our development team is interested on using RadOrgChart. We are trying to test on features that your OrgChart offer.
    There are some questions/concerns on it before we are going to development based on this element. 

    When the node in each level is very long, it will expand the screen instead of creating new node line.
    This problem is the same as this image in this post.  The Column Count is not helping in this case as there is no grouping defined on our chart.
    1.       In the current version, are there any configurations that can set maximum width of the chart to force it to create a new line?
    2.       If there aren’t, are there any workaround?  We can only thinking of modifying CSS of the OrgChart by customized Javascript to regenerate the chart after it finish rendering, which might be a bit complicated. 

    Another topic is on search feature with the OrgChart. We found that we can use drillDownOnNode like the exampled in the Breadcrumb example.
    1.       Is there the similar method for the server side (C#) to navigate to specified node? It’d be great if we can use command like this: orgChart.drillDownOnNode(ServerFoundNode).
    2.       Is it possible to retrieve hierarchical string (e.g.”0:0:1”) of the node from server-side without have to trace back Nodes object? We may need to use MaxDataBindDepth=2 so we might not able to retrieve all hierarchy string from client side. 

    Thank you and regards,

    Hi Sarin,

    Straight tot he points:
    1) In the current version of the control there is no way to have a larger structure of nodes on the same level when you have single binding. In such scenarios we kindly recommend using group enabled binding and then using the column count property to keep the nodes together.

    2) Unfortunately at the moment there is no such server-side functionality  that will allow you to drill down to a node or retrieve hierarchical string but we have it in out to do list for some of the upcoming releases.

    Hope this information will be helpful.
