      Adding a new tree to a window is, unfortunately, not as easy as simply clicking the 'HasTree' checkbox, although this is neccessary, of course.

      It also requires to add a new table which holds information about parent/child relations in the tree. This table must have the same structure as the predefined AD_TreeNodeXXX tables. You can take these as an example (refer to:\). Additionally, you will have to make source code modifications in order to have your table be used for the tree. Again, you can be geared to the org.compiere.model.X_AD_TreeNodeXXX classes and their derivatives (by the way, don'T forget to generate a class for your table as well).

      Additionally, you will have to create a new entry in the 'References' window. Choose 'Table Validation' as validation type, and fill in the values as in 'C_BPartner Parent', for example.

      I hope I did not forget an important step. I played a little bit around with the thing, until it finally worked (which it now does), so I do not have precise and complete step-by-step instructions. Try it by yourself, and you will make it as well.

      Nota bene: I had a lot of trouble because I did not set primary keys and foreign keys (at least not in a meaningful way), which hindered my tree from working. Don't make the same mistake.

      That's right, the URL does not work. Just remove the closing bracket and the full stop and it does:
