    Column tooltip

    By using the property columns.tooltip it is possible to display a custom tooltip for a specific column. The ID of the script template must be set to the columns.tooltip property.

    Please refer the following code example for setting a custom tooltip for a specific column.

    Write the following code in index.html file.

  • js
  • <script type="text/x-jsrender" id="template">
        <div style='padding:10px;color:red;font-weight: bold;'>
            {{:#data['record']['taskName']}}
        </div>
    </script>
  • javascript
  • <ej-treegrid id="TreeGridControl" [columns]="columns"
        //...>
    </ej-treegrid>
  • javascript
  • import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    
    @Component({
      selector: 'ej-app',
        templateUrl: 'app/app.component.html'
    })
    export class AppComponent {
        public columns:any;
      constructor() {
       //...
       this.columns= [
            //...
            {
                field: "taskName",
                headerText: "Task Name",
                tooltip: "template"
            },
            //...
        ]
      }
    }

    The following output shows the output of above code snippets.

    NOTE

    Template element should be enclosed with <script> tag with type as “text/x-jsrender”.

    Header tooltip

    By using the property columns.headerTooltip it is possible to display a custom tooltip for a specific column header. The ID of the script template must be set to the columns.headerTooltip property.

    Please refer the following code example for setting a custom tooltip for a specific column header.

  • js
  • <script type="text/x-jsrender" id="template">
        <div style='padding:10px;color:blue;font-weight: bold;'>
            {{:#data['column']['headerText']}}
        </div>
    </script>
  • javascript
  • <ej-treegrid id="TreeGridControl" [columns]="columns"
        //...>
    </ej-treegrid>
  • javascript
  • import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    
    @Component({
      selector: 'ej-app',
        templateUrl: 'app/app.component.html'
    })
    export class AppComponent {
        public columns:any;
      constructor() {
       //...
       this.columns= [
            //...
            {
                field: "taskID",
                headerText: "Task Id",
                headerTooltip: "template"
            },
            //...
        ]
      }
    }

    The following output shows the result of above code example.

    Clip Mode

    Clip mode enables the TreeGrid to clip cell content and header content when the content exceeds the boundary of the cell width.

    We can specify the type of clip mode using columns.clipMode property, clip mode will be enabled for both TreeGrid content and header of that specific column.

    The below are the available clipping modes in TreeGrid,

    1. Clip
    2. Ellipsis

    Clip

    When clipMode of Columns property set as ej.TreeGrid.ClipMode.Clip, then it truncates the overflown text in the cell.

    NOTE

    1. By default the clipMode will be set as Clip.

    The following code example describes the above behavior.

  • javascript
  • <ej-treegrid id="TreeGridControl" [columns]="columns"
        //...>
    </ej-treegrid>
  • javascript
  • import {Component} from '@angular/core';
    
    @Component({
        selector: 'ej-app',
        templateUrl: 'app/app.component.html'
    })
    export class AppComponent {
        public columns: any;
        constructor() {
            //...
            this.columns = [
                //...
                {
                    field: "taskName",
                    headerText: "Task Name",
                    clipMode: ej.TreeGrid.ClipMode.Clip
                },
                //...
            ]
        }
    }

    The following output shows the result of above code example.

    Ellipsis

    When columns.clipMode property is set as ej.TreeGrid.ClipMode.Ellipsis then it shows ellipsis for the overflown cell.

    The following code example describes the above behavior.

  • javascript
  • <ej-treegrid id="TreeGridControl" [columns]="columns"
        //...>
    </ej-treegrid>
  • javascript
  • import {Component} from '@angular/core';
    
    @Component({
        selector: 'ej-app',
        templateUrl: 'app/app.component.html'
    })
    export class AppComponent {
        public columns: any;
        constructor() {
            //...
            this.columns = [
                //...
                {
                    field: "taskName",
                    headerText: "Task Name",
                    clipMode: ej.TreeGrid.ClipMode.Ellipsis
                },
                //...
            ]
        }
    }

    The following output is shows the result of the above code example.
