Full Row Selection

The TreeView control provides the option to highlight a full row of tree view nodes. When FullRowSelect is set to true, selection highlights the entire width of the tree view and displays the tree node text instead of the width. It makes selection easier.

In the code behind page, create a data list which contains the details about tree nodes of TreeView.

    In the ASPX page, add TreeView element with following properties.

  • html
  • <ej:TreeView ID="fullRowTree" runat="server" DataSourceID="ObjectData" DataTextField="Text"
        DataIdField="ID" DataParentIdField="ParentID" DataHasChildField="HasChild"
        DataExpandedField="Expanded" DataSelectedField="Selected" FullRowSelect="true" >
    </ej:TreeView>
    <asp:ObjectDataSource ID="ObjectData" runat="server" TypeName="FullRowSelectDataSource"
        SelectMethod="GetFullRowItems"></asp:ObjectDataSource>

    For more details about full row selection in TreeView, refer the sample here.

    Customization

    You can customize the TreeView full row selection for template support by using CssClass property. Based on this custom class, you can customize the height of the highlighting TreeView node.

    In the code behind page, create a data list which contains the details about tree nodes and map the list data to DataSource property of TreeView.

  • c#
  • public partial class FullRowSelection : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        List<loadOnDemand> fullRowData = new List<loadOnDemand>();
