The following code example describes the above behavior.

<ej:Kanban ID="Kanban" runat="server" KeyField="Status" AllowTitle="true" AllowSelection="true">
                <Columns>

Template

Templates are used to create custom card layout as per the user convenient. HTML templates can be specified in the Template property of the CardSettings as an ID of the template’s HTML element.
You can use JsRender syntax in the template. For more information about JsRender syntax, please refer this link.

The following code example describes the above behavior.

               }

    The following output is displayed as a result of the above code example.

    Template

    By making use of template feature with tooltip, all the field names that are mapped from the DataSource can be accessed to define the Template tooltip for card. The ToolTipSettings.Enable must be enabled first.

    The following code example describes the tooltip template.
