Drag and Drop Multiple Nodes

The tree view supports to drag and drop multiple nodes by specifying the allowMultiSelection as true along with the allowDragAndDrop as true. It allows you to drag and drop multiple nodes in the tree view.

In the controller page, create a data list that contains the details about the tree nodes.

  • c#
  • public partial class TreeViewController : Controller
    	{
    		List<LoadData> tree1 = new List<LoadData>();
    		List<LoadData> tree2 = new List<LoadData>();
    		public ActionResult Index()
    		{
    			tree1.Add(new LoadData { Id = 1, Parent = 0, Text = "Item 1" });
    			tree1.Add(new LoadData { Id = 2, Parent = 0, Text = "Item 2" });
    			tree1.Add(new LoadData { Id = 3, Parent = 0, Text = "Item 3" });
    			tree1.Add(new LoadData { Id = 4, Parent = 0, Text = "Item 4" });
    			tree1.Add(new LoadData { Id = 5, Parent = 1, Text = "Item 1.1" });
    			tree1.Add(new LoadData { Id = 6, Parent = 1, Text = "Item 1.2" });
    			tree1.Add(new LoadData { Id = 7, Parent = 1, Text = "Item 1.3" });
    			tree1.Add(new LoadData { Id = 8, Parent = 3, Text = "Item 3.1" });
    			tree1.Add(new LoadData { Id = 9, Parent = 3, Text = "Item 3.2" });
    			tree1.Add(new LoadData { Id = 10, Parent = 5, Text = "Item 1.1.1" });
    			ViewBag.datasource1 = tree1;
    	
    			tree2.Add(new LoadData { Id = 11, Parent = 0, Text = "Item 5" });
    			tree2.Add(new LoadData { Id = 12, Parent = 0, Text = "Item 6" });
    			tree2.Add(new LoadData { Id = 13, Parent = 0, Text = "Item 7" });
    			tree2.Add(new LoadData { Id = 14, Parent = 0, Text = "Item 4" });
    			tree2.Add(new LoadData { Id = 15, Parent = 11, Text = "Item 5.1" });
    			tree2.Add(new LoadData { Id = 16, Parent = 11, Text = "Item 5.2" });
    			tree2.Add(new LoadData { Id = 17, Parent = 11, Text = "Item 5.3" });
    			tree2.Add(new LoadData { Id = 18, Parent = 13, Text = "Item 7.1" });
    			tree2.Add(new LoadData { Id = 19, Parent = 13, Text = "Item 7.2" });
    			tree2.Add(new LoadData { Id = 10, Parent = 15, Text = "Item 5.1.1" });
    			ViewBag.datasource2 = tree2;
    			return View();
    		}
    	}
    	public class LoadData
    	{  
    			public int Id;
                public int Parent;
                public string Text;
    	}

    In the view page, add the following code and map the properties defined to the corresponding fields in data source, and specify the multiple drag and drop settings.

  • cshtml
  • <ej-tree-view id="treeview1" allow-multi-selection="true" allow-drag-and-drop="true">
    	   <e-tree-view-fields datasource="ViewBag.datasource1" id="Id" parent-id="Parent" text="Text">
    	   </e-tree-view-fields>
    	 </ej-tree-view>
    
        <ej-tree-view id="treeview2" allow-multi-selection="true" allow-drag-and-drop="true">
    	  <e-tree-view-fields datasource="ViewBag.datasource2" id="Id" parent-id="Parent" text="Text">
    	  </e-tree-view-fields>
    	</ej-tree-view>
