When I searched for information about tree view control in Google, I couldn't find much data that explained how we can show the tree view control easily, so that made me want to write an article about how I got the output.

Here's how to bind a tree view step-by-step. 

Step 1

Drag and drop the Tree view control from the Toolbox.

Step 2
