Data Sources

Your data source can be any object implementing the IEnumerable interface (other than a String) that can be set as the DataSource. The control infrastructure supports both hierarchical and heterogeneous data (multiple data types within a single list), and free-form structures such as trees and XML. You can either data bind by setting the DataSource property on the control, or through populating the DataItems collection property directly.

For more information on how to supply your data to the control, see Supplying Data.
