You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to ChildListFieldName
.HierarchyPrintOptions .ChildListFieldName


Set this property if your report’s data is recursive. Assign the collection of child objects (records) if they have the same type as the parent objects (records).

public class MyData {
  public MyData() {
    Children = new List<MyData>();
  public List<MyData> Children { get; set; }

After you specify the ChildListFieldName property, the report’s Detail band is printed in tree mode.


Tree mode is supported for recursive data and data with ID-ParentID related fields. Specify either the ChildListFieldName property or the KeyFieldName-ParentFieldName property pair.
