Version 16.1460.0.37

I am having the same issue that this user previously reported:

When using a self referencing class object added to a BindingList as a datasource I only get tables down to level 7 (see attached screenshot in .rar)

Public Class TableItem
     Public Property wbsItemId As Integer
     Public Property ParentWBSItem as TableItem
     Public Property ParentId As Integer
     Public Property WBSItemName As String
     Public Property WBSChildren As BindingList(Of TableItem)
End Class

Private Sub AddItems()
        Dim wbsGridItembindingList As New BindingList(Of TableItem)
        Dim newWbsItem As New TableItemWith {.wbsItemId = iteratorNum, .ParentWBSItem = Nothing, .WBSItemName = "Item" & 1}
        Dim newWBSParentItem As TableItem= newWbsItem

        For x As Integer = 2 To 10
            Dim newChildWbsItem As New TableItem With {.wbsItemId = x, .ParentWBSItem = newWBSParentItem, .WBSItemName = "Item" & x}
            newWBSParentItem = newChildWbsItem

        Me.GridGroupingControl1.DataSource = wbsGridItembindingList
End Sub

Hi Tim, 

Thanks for using Syncfusion product. 

To use more than 7 level of child table you could use the MaxNestedCollectionRecurseLevel property. Please refer the following code example and the sample. 

Code example 
Me.gridGroupingControl1.Engine.MaxNestedCollectionRecurseLevel = 10
Please get back to us if you need any further assistance on this.
