UI control to present hierarchical data

P: n/a
Hi there.

I am trying to find th best way (best UI control) to present hierarchical
data, nested tables. For example, I have a Employees table (id, name) and
EmployeesSales (id, idEmp, description, value).
I want to show this in an hierarchical mode, so I tried DataGrid control.
However, as I read somewhere, this DataGrid can only show one table at a
time, i.e., when I click "plus" sign, I have only a link to the
EmployeesSales table.

So my question is, wich UI control can I use? Could I consider Treeview? Or
maybe try to find third party controls (unfortunatly, must be free).

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Marco Pais

We use the controls from Infragistics, theirs grid support that. Take
a look at the examples:

Marco,

Here is a free opensource project found on CodeProject:
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/list/o...stcontrol.aspx

It might serve your purposes well, but not sure how well.
By the way, the DataGrid control does support master details view,
however, the DataGridView control does not.

cheers
