Tree-Table

Name
Tree-Table
Short description/Intent
Combining the two data-viewing approaches into one gives you the best of both worlds, at the cost of some visual and programming complexity. You can show the hierarchy of items, plus a matrix of additional data or item attributes, in one unified structure.

Specification

Figure
Use when
The UI displays multivariate information, so a table works well to show the data (or allow them to be sorted, as in Sortable Table). But the items are primarily organized as a hierarchy, so you also want a tree, or outline, to display them.
