Hierarchical data sources migrated to CodePlex

I just migrated my ObjectHierarchicalDataSource and CompositeHierarchicalDataSource projects from GotDotNet to CodePlex.

These data sources enable Menu and TreeView to declaratively bind to almost arbitrary data.

UPDATE: those data sources work with other hierarchical data controls such as Telerik's own Menu and TreeView.

  • Any plans for a SqlHierarchicalDataSource?

    I've been toying around with a treeview custom control that would use a SqlDataSource, provided you give it a Parent/Child relationship (otherwise it would just be a list). I also toyed around with making a hierarchical data source that inherited from SqlDataSource, but gave up after a few days.

  • Nathan: why not use regular SqlDataSources with the CompositeHierarchicalDataSource?

  • Hi Bertrand!

    Do you have any plans for the CompositeHierarchicalDataSource to support the LinqDataSource control from ASP.NET 3.5? Right now the CompositeHierarchicalDataSource control seems the only chance to get hierarchical support for the LinqDataSource control.

  • Atanas: not for the moment but that's a good suggestion.
