  30.     "applicationid": 34113,  
  31.     "applicationname""Staff Leave Management",  
  32.     "ParentApplicationId": 24439,  
  33.     "pagelink""~/Web/LeaveManagement/LeaveManagementStaffList.aspx",  
  34.     "PageName""LeaveManagementStaff/List",  
  35.     "sortorder"null,  
  36.     "IconCD"null  
  37.   },  
  38.   {  
  39.     "applicationid": 24276,  
  40.     "applicationname""Subjects",  
  41.     "ParentApplicationId": 24438,  
  42.     "pagelink""~/Web/Course/CourseSearch.aspx",  
  43.     "PageName""Course/Search",

 like that i'm getting 100's of records, if any record have parentid null means that record parent only, and parent record applicationid is same as parentid in other record means that record is child(parent child relationship based on applicationid and parentid here)
 
im using foreach loop to add all prent in one list
 
  1. var response = SisApi.Get("Auth/getmenu"out issucsesParam, UserId);  
  2.            Person pobj = new Person();  
  3.            var person = new Person { applicationname = "", ParentApplicationId = "", applicationid = "" };  
  4.            var menu2 = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<List<Person>>(response);  
  5.   
  6.   
  7.            foreach (var n in menu2)  
  8.            {  
  9.                if (n.ParentApplicationId == null)  
  10.                {  
  11.                     
  12.                    ParentnodeNames.Add(n.applicationname);  
  13.                }  
  14.            }  
  
if parentnodes list have 20 records say Admin, Management, Library i'm statically creating that many List<String> like ListAdmin, ListManagement to add relevent child records
below
  1. foreach (var r in menu2)  
  2.             {  
  3.                 if (r.ParentApplicationId == "24439" || r.applicationname == "Admin")  
  4.                 {  
  5.                     AdminList.Add(r.applicationname);  
  6.   
  7.                 }  
  8.                 if (r.ParentApplicationId == "24443" || r.applicationname == "Management")  
  9.                 {  
  10.                     ManagementList.Add(r.applicationname);  
  11.                 }  
  12.   
  13.                 if (r.ParentApplicationId == "24438" || r.applicationname == "Academics")  
  14.                 {  
  15.                     AcademicsList.Add(r.applicationname);  
  16.                 }  
  17. }  
 finally im adding all list in Dicationary
 
  1. Dictionary<string, List<string>> childdata=new Dictionary<string,List<string>>();  
  2.   
  3. entnodeNames.Contains("Admin"))  
  4.         childdata.Add(ParentnodeNames[0], AdminList);  
  5.   
  6.     if (ParentnodeNames.Contains("Management"))  
  7.         childdata.Add(ParentnodeNames[1], ManagementList);  
  8.     if (ParentnodeNames.Contains("Academics"))  
  9.         childdata.Add(ParentnodeNames[2], AcademicsList);  
and setting to listview.
