About Infragistics WebHierarchicalDataSource

Convert flat data into a hierarchical ASP.NET data source easily.

Infragistics WebHierarchicalDataSource is a non-visual ASP.NET control that simplifies the shaping of data to fit the needs of diverse, hierarchical user interface (UI) displays (like trees, menus and data grids). Infragistics WebHierarchicalDataSource allows developers to easily construct complex hierarchical data views from standard flat data sources such as the SqlDataSource or the ObjectDataSource controls.

Infragistics WebHierarchicalDataSource is an engine that gets the tough work of data transformation done with these features, so your flat data can stand out in new kinds of UI.

  • Pattern-based - Leverages the proven ASP.NET Data Source pattern and serves as an adaptor of flat data sources into hierarchical form.
  • Design-time Wizard - With its Visual Studio designer wizard, the WebHierarchicalDataSource makes it easy to tie your multiple flat data sources into hierarchical relationships.
  • Integrate Disperse Data - Whether your data comes from .NET objects or relational databases, because WebHierarchicalDataSource works with existing ASP.NET data source controls like the SqlDataSource means there is a wealth of data you can now integrate into a single consolidated, hierarchical view.
