ForeignKey column in JavaScript (ES5) TreeGrid control

Since Tree Grid Databinding concept is of hierarchy relationship, we do not provide in-built support for foreignKey datasource.

To display the foreignKey value at initial rendering, we can use the queryCellInfo event of the Tree Grid and also by using the editType and columns.edit properties of Tree Grid Column, we can render Dropdownlist with external or foreign dataSource.
