Due to the dropdown requirement, it seems like a flat (or horizontal) tree would have many advantages. If text is angled off a radial tree the drop down would either be angle-aligned with the text node (hence also angled) or not angled (and not aligned with the associated text node). Either case is highly unconventional. Is there a strong case for a radial ...

You may use a symbol for every subsequent instance (see image below). You may use the windows shortcut symbol or any other symbol that is meaningful to users.

When the number of items vary greatly in a nested hierarchical structure then a simple tree view may be the way to go for the following reasons. 1. Showing the number of child items Often times just knowing how many items are below a parent item is enough for a user to keep scanning past it without even having to look at what they are. 2. Text is ...

To my knowledge in iOS, there is no way to do so with any pre-existing UIKit controls like UITabBarController or UINavigationController. The iOS Human Interface Guidelines also do not discuss executing a traditional desktop tree-view hierarchy. Conceptually, a tree-view exists to represent a hierarchical data relationship to the user. The canonical way to ...

The picture is quite small but if I understand you correctly, you want to show a tree-like structure within a data table, something like e.g. here: You can play around with it here, by the way: http://webix.com/demo/treetable/editing/ I believe the whole idea behind expanding and contracting the branches is to keep more detailed information hidden before ...

I have had this several times in my designs, and some of the solutions can be; based on maximum number of levels, you calculate and just indent childrens with some padding from left, and limit width to i.e. 150px.. Some childrens with longer titles will then have text in two rows, which when styled good is not a problem you place full names to childrens, ...

If the grid is hierarchical, what happens when a parent row is selected? Does this mean the child rows are selected also or is it just the parent row. If the selection of a parent row does influence the child rows, I would recommend to indent the child rows. Otherwise it would be difficult to understand why the checking of the parent row influences other ...

The 2nd paragraph ["I want to be able to select only the parent (without the children) as well as have the children be selectable on their own or all together when clicking the parent"] makes it sound like you want to enable selection of the children checkboxes when the parent is checked, and disable selection of the children checkboxes when the parent is un-...

Using a flowchart as shown would indeed become quite unwieldily wide, but you can definitely turn a simple bullet list in to something more graphical. For instance, if you have a maximum depth of about 5 or 6 (like in your tree example) putting it all in a horizontally orientated flow chart would already save a lot of space due to the horizontal nature of ...

In this case I think it may be good to go back to first principles on what you are trying to achieve UX-wise. There is no perfect answer here...it really depends on what you're trying to achieve with your users. For example: If you're trying to communicate the high-level number and density of relationships, then a radial diagram helps. If you think users ...

Let's give this a context. Geographical / Political You want to edit a record (say the name of Mayor of a city). New York is inside NYS which is inside the USA. OR Music / Movie Edit the name of a musician in a band which is part of some sub-genre, part of a genre part of a meta-genre. Store Inventory Item, Sub-Category, Category, Department In each ...
