I have been going through the sample code for the data bound grid and I think I''''d need something that provides the ability to place different icons beside the plus/minus boxes just like the vanilla tree control. Also something that isn''''t so dependent on ADO? I found something very similar to what I need at codeproject (http://www.codeproject.com/cs/miscctrl/treelistview.asp). Does essential suite have anything similar to this?

We currrently do not ship a multi-column treecontrol other than using a GridDataBoundGrid or a GridGroupinng control bound to a hierarchical datasource.
But I think you can get this look using the self-referencing list technique referenced in your prior thread, http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=26489.
Since all entries have the same content, you would maintain a list of objects with the properties you want to see in each row. In addition, you would add an additional ''Parent'' property and use this property to define the self-relation on the list to fit into the previous example. Adding things like check boxes and icons is a technical point, but really does not affect the underlying structures that much, simply additional properties for each node.
I will try to post a sample here in the next day or so.
