Display multilevel nested grid data in asp.net mvc

Nowadays display nested grid view (tabular data) is an essential part in web development. There are lots of 3rd party plugin like Telerik grid view for display hierarchy and nested data. But most of the developer avoid 3rd party plugins.


Now in the MVC framework, we have full control over HTML. We can display multilevel hierarchical data without using any 3rd party plugin. In one of my previous article I have shown, how to display grouping data (order and order items) in asp.net MVC application.  Here in this article, we will see how we can display multilevel nested grid view in asp.net MVC application.
