            new Model(){SubTask = "Twitter", Duration = "0.25", Notes ="RT:nothing to report" },}

        treeviewList.ItemsSource = ManufacturerList;


If the only problem with your code is that each treeview item renders with different grid column widths, you can try the "share size scope" feature to align them all. In the TreeView control, set Grid.IsSharedSizeScope to true:-

Then add a SharedSizeGroup to the ColumnDefinitions that should have the same width across all the treeview items (your first column definition has a fixed width anyway, so it's not needed on that):-

   <ColumnDefinition Width="20" />
   <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" SharedSizeGroup="A" />
   <ColumnDefinition SharedSizeGroup="B" />

The values are just strings used to "name" the columns, and can be anything you like.

    Display treeviewitem as grid rows in wpf. Basically in need to achieve something like this using treeview control in wpf: (random picture) Where nodes and child nodes have same headers. I googled a lot, but my knowledge in wpf not that good. I tried using Grid but obviously it create different grids, so I can relay on column width.

    You can populate the WPF TreeView with items in one of two ways. One option is manually adding the items, in either code or XAML, and the other option is to create them via data binding. The XAML that follows shows how one can manually add some TreeViewItems to a TreeView in XAML: XML.

    TreeView Parts. The TreeView control does not have any named parts. When you create a ControlTemplate for an TreeView, your template might contain a ItemsPresenter within a ScrollViewer. (The ItemsPresenter displays each item in the TreeView; the ScrollViewer enables scrolling within the control). If the ItemsPresenter is not the direct child

    Hello All, I just wanted tree view to appear like the windows form control treeview type and modified the style as shown in below code However there appears to be extra connecting vertical dotted lines on the very first node which ideally should not be present.
