Accorrding to the documentation there should be a TreeViewAdvDataBound control, but I can''t find the control or the example path.
I have Essential Suite 188.8.131.52
The documentation path is
User Guides/Essential Tools/Packages/Advanced Concepts... /TreeViewAdvDataBound

Here is the databound TreeViewAdv sample and the required library.
Steps on how to use the sample:
1) TreeViewAdvDataBound_Lib has the implementation for the databound tree. TreeViewAdvDataBound_Demo has a sample that shows how this is used.
2) The contents of these files are in a subfolder in the zip files. When you unzip do so keeping the subfolders side-by-side.
3) Open the TreeViewAdvDataBound_Demo solution. This should have a reference to both the above projects.
4) Compile and run the solution before opening any designers.
5) Now close VS.Net and re-open the solution. You can now open the form in the sample, in the designer.
6) Take a look at the "Data" category of the tree control for some pertinent properties.
7) Our Tools User''s Guide should also include a lot of information about this control (TreeViewAdvDataBound).

Many thanks for the reply, and I appreciate the big effort and work that have been done with the tree.
I''ve tried the TreeViewAdvDataBound on my DB and worked well with me, Although I have three comments:
1. The test that I tried with the TreeViewAdvDataBound was something exactly like the sample in Grid Essential Samples\DataBound\Hierarchical\GDBGTreeLines (a four related tables).
The only way I found to work with the tree that to join the related table together and then use the joined one with the tree.
Is there a better way to do this, using DataRelation?
2. Why the TreeViewAdvDataBound is not included in the suite? I downloaded v184.108.40.206 and still not included in it.
3. A tiny comment about the "Samples Browser" in v220.127.116.11.
In the new combobox that holds the VisualStudio.net versions, the versions is typed in a worng way, for example "VisualStudio.NET 1.1", v1.1 is the .net Framework version not the IDE itself. It should be "VisualStudio.NET 2003".
I thank you again for your help and your time for reading my message.

1) I don''t think that TreeViewAdvDataBound handles DataRelations. The join you''re doing is probably the best way to go about it. However, I have entered support for DataRelations as Feature Request #190.
2) TreeViewAdvDataBound isn''t included in Studio due to licensing issues. Since using it requires licenses for Tools, Grid, and Grouping we don''t want to misrepresent that by specifically placing it in a product. I''ve recommended that the documentation be clearer on this issue.
3) While you''re technically correct, we feel that explicitly stating the version of the .NET Framework is clearer than the version number of Visual Studio.
