Tree Grid View Sample

This project includes a very simple demonstration of Aras Tree Grid View (TGV) functionality. The import package adds a TGV to the PackageDefinition ItemType and displays the package structure in a relationship tab on every PackageDefinition item. The user can also open individual items that belong to the package - directly from the TGV.

An upcoming Aras Labs blog post will walk through the steps of manually configuring a TGV and the underlying QueryDefinition.
