This section explains briefly about how to create a PivotTreeMap control in your application with Angular. This section covers only the minimal features that you need to know to get started with the PivotTreeMap.

Getting started with SystemJS

To quick start with Syncfusion JavaScript Angular components run the below commands to clone the repository for SystemJS starter and installing required dependency packages.

  • > git clone -b systemjs
     > cd angular2-seeds
     > npm install

    The below steps describes to add component with above cloned seed application.

    Syncfusion JavaScript components source configuration and sample creation

    • Copy required Syncfusion Angular source component(s) from the below build location and add it in src/ej folder (For ex., consider the pivottreemap component).
  • (Installed Location)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\24.2.3\JavaScript\assets-src\angular2\


    core.ts file is mandatory for all Syncfusion JavaScript Angular components. The repository having the source file from Essential Studio for JavaScript v24.2.3.

    • Create pivottreemap folder inside src folder.

    • Create pivottreemap.component.html view file inside src/pivottreemap folder and render ejPivotTreeMap Angular component using the below code example.

  • HTML
  • <ej-pivottreemap id="PivotTreeMap1" ></ej-pivottreemap>
    • Create pivottreemap.component.ts model file inside the folder src/pivottreemap and create sample component using the below code example.
  • TS
  • import { Component } from '@angular/core';
      selector: 'ej-app',
      templateUrl: 'app/components/pivottreemap/pivottreemap.component.html',
      styleUrls: ['app/components/pivottreemap/pivottreemap.component.css'], 
    export class PivotTreeMapComponent {

    Configure the routes for the Router

    Before adding router configuration for above created ejPivotTreeMap component, we recommend you to go through the Angular Routing configuration to get the deeper knowledge about Angular routing.

    • Now, we are going to configure the route navigation link for created PivotTreeMap sample in src/app.component.html file.
  • HTML
  • <div>
    	<ul class="nav navbar-nav">
    		. . . .
    		<li><a data-toggle="collapse" data-target="" href="#pivottreemap" [routerLink]="['/pivottreemap']">PivotTreeMap </a></li>
    • Import the ejPivotTreeMap sample component and define the route in src/app.routes.ts file.
  • import { Routes } from '@angular/router';
    . . . . 
    import { PivotTreeMapComponent } from './pivottreemap/pivottreemap.component';
    export const rootRouterConfig: Routes = [
        { path: '', redirectTo: 'home', pathMatch: 'full' },
        . . . . 
        { path: 'pivottreemap', component: PivotTreeMapComponent }
    • Import and declare the Syncfusion source component and ejPivotTreeMap sample component into app.module.ts like the below code snippet.
  • import { NgModule, enableProdMode, ErrorHandler } from '@angular/core';
    . . . . . 
    import { EJ_PIVOTTREEMAP_COMPONENTS } from './ej/pivottreemap.component';
    import { PivotTreeMapComponent } from './pivottreemap/pivottreemap.component';
    import { rootRouterConfig } from './app.routes';
    . . . . 
      imports: [BrowserModule, FormsModule, HttpModule, RouterModule.forRoot(rootRouterConfig, { useHash: true })],
      declarations: [. . . . , EJ_PIVOTTREEMAP_COMPONENTS,PivotTreeMapComponent],
      bootstrap: [AppComponent]
    export class AppModule { }

    Control Initialization

    Add necessary HTML elements in pivottreemap.component.html to render PivotTreeMap

  • HTML
  • <ej-pivottreemap id="PivotTreeMap1""" dataSource.catalog="Adventure Works DW 2008 SE" dataSource.cube="Adventure Works" [dataSource.rows]="rows" [dataSource.columns]="columns" [dataSource.values]="values" [dataSource.filters]="filters">

    Create a CSS page and add necessary CSS elements for PivotTreeMap

  • CSS
  • .e-pivottreemap {
            min-height: 275px; 
            display: block;
            min-width: 525px; 
            height: 460px !important; 
            width: 99%

    Populate PivotTreeMap with data

    Let us now see how to populate the PivotTreeMap control using a sample data as shown below.

    <ej-pivottreemap id="PivotTreeMap1""" dataSource.catalog="Adventure Works DW 2008 SE" dataSource.cube="Adventure Works" [dataSource.rows]="rows" [dataSource.columns]="columns" [dataSource.values]="values" [dataSource.filters]="filters" (renderSuccess)="renderSuccess($event)">
        export class PivotTreeMapComponent {
            public rows; columns; values; filters;
            constructor() {
              this.rows = [{ fieldName: "[Date].[Fiscal]" }];
              this.columns = [{ fieldName: "[Customer].[Customer Geography]" }];
              this.values = [{ measures: [{ fieldName: "[Measures].[Internet Sales Amount]", }], axis: "columns" }];
              this.filters = [];
             let treemapTarget = $('#PivotTreeMap1TreeMapContainer').data('ejTreeMap');
             treemapTarget.model.tooltipTemplate = null;
             treemapTarget.model.showTooltip = false;

    The above code will generate a simple PivotTreeMap with internet sales amount over a period of fiscal years across different customer geographic locations.
