Is there an "easy" way to do a hierarchy in the GridControl (non-data bound grid)? I have a rather sizable and complex database, and I don't want to bind to the hierarchy up-front. I'd rather tell the grid to display a "+" and then intercept the user clicking on "+" and dynamically retrieve the hierarchy at that time.

I do think this is doable, but I don't know that I would say it will be 'easy' to do. It would probably take a couple of days to get things working. With the new GridGroupingControl, you could load the primary table (to show the nodes that might be expanded) and set a relation up to an empty child table. Then on the click you could populate this empty child tabe with your related data. With the GridControl you could display another grid on the cell click. (This is how the new GridGroupingControl works). But either approach would likely take some effort to code.
