Nested list shown in dataGrid

Is there an easy way to load a list, with a nested list into a DataGrid? 

Something like: 

<GridColumn Field=@nameof(OverviewData.Mail) Width="230"></GridColumn>

<GridColumnField=@nameof(OverviewData.Designation) Width="170"></GridColumn> 
Foreach(var item in nestedElement)
<GridColumnField=@nameof(NestedData.X) Width="170"></GridColumn> 

<GridColumnField=@nameof(NestedData.Y) Width="170"></GridColumn> 


  public class OverviewData


public string Mail { get; set; }

public string Designation { get; set; }

public List<NestedData> Nested { get; set; }


  public class NestedData


public string x { get; set; }

public string y { get; set; }

Hi Soren,

Greetings from Syncfusion support.

We analyzed your query, and we suggest using Complex data binding to achieve your requirement. We have discussed this topic in our UG documentation. Kindly refer to the attached documentation for your reference.

Hi  Keerthana, thanks for  the reply. What if I have a list of EmployeeNames in the EmployeeData list?

How would I bind one or more to the grid? Dynamic columns muse be made 


    public List<EmployeeData> Employees { get; set; }

    protected override void OnInitialized()
    Employees = Enumerable.Range(1, 9).Select(x => new EmployeeData()
        EmployeeID = x,
        Name = new EmployeeName() {
            FirstName = (new string[] { "Nancy", "Andrew", "Janet", "Margaret", "Steven" })[new Random().Next(5)],
            LastName =(new string[] { "Davolio", "Fuller", "Leverling", "Peacock", "Buchanan" })[new Random().Next(5)]
        Title = (new string[] { "Sales Representative", "Vice President, Sales", "Sales Manager",
                                              "Inside Sales Coordinator" })[new Random().Next(4)],

    public class EmployeeData
        public int? EmployeeID { get; set; }
        public List<EmployeeName> Name { get; set; }
        public string Title { get; set; }

    public class EmployeeName
        public string FirstName { get; set; }
        public string LastName { get; set; }
