This example demonstrates how to populate RadTreeView from WCF Web Service. You need to point to an existing web service and method:

<telerik:RadTreeView runat="server" ID="RadTreeView2" 
	DataSourceID="LinqDataSource1"
	DataTextField="Text" DataValueField="id" >
	<WebServiceSettings Path="TreeViewWcfService.svc" Method="LoadData" />
	<DataBindings>
		<telerik:RadTreeNodeBinding Depth="0" ExpandMode="WebService" />
	</DataBindings>
</telerik:RadTreeView>

The root nodes are populated from a EntityFramework datasource:

Check the source code of the web service for the implementation of the LoadData method.

Expand a node to populate its children on demand.
