Description

This example illustrates an alternative approach different than the built-in grouping feature of the Telerik OrgChart for ASP.NET MVC. Instead of having a dedicated Group By field in the data source, you can also use an existing field.

In this case, the demo demonstrates how the data can be grouped by the ParentID field. And since numeric values like 1, 2, 3 won't be meaningful for the viewing user, the demo leverages the group header template capability of the component in order to get the actual names of the corresponding parent.
