    Hi people,
    in the demo of TreeList it is written that "Its hybrid structure empowers you with the ability to visualize self-referencing data in a hierarchical view defining primary/foreign key relations and using identical objects for source."
    I want to know if this control support non-self referencing data? Like

    Code                 Chapter                Subchapter
    123456                12                          1234
    456789                45                          4567
    345678                34                          3456
    124389                12                          1243

    Here Chapter is the parent of subchapter.

         - 4567
        - 3456

    Tell me can this control work for me?

    Hello Usman,

    The whole idea behind RadTreeList is to bind only to self-referencing data. In order to achieve your scenario you could either add additional field to your data source so you could simulate self-referencing data or use our RadGrid could and use the hierarchy functionality and the DetailTableDataBind event as shown in the help article below.
