Alpha Five feature pack of the week: Tree Control Record Navigator

Sometimes we give features in Alpha Five really obvious names. Take our next feature pack for example. The Tree Control Record Navigator for Grid Components actually looks like a tree. It doesn't have brown bark, green leaves, or a squirrel nesting in it, but it comes close enough.

Anyway, let's move on to what it gives you. This feature pack lets you add a dynamically generated tree control to filter the Grid. When a node in the tree is expanded, an Ajax callback is made to populate that node of the tree. When an entry in the tree is selected, the Grid is filtered on the selected entry in the tree control.

To give you even more control, you get to pick where the tree control actually appears by defining its placement in the Grid's master template. Watch the following videos to get the low down on how to set up the tree control record navigator, and see all the flexibility you get when customizing queries.
