Template Option

Tree nodes can be customized by using ‘Template’ property. Treeview template option requires addition JS library called ‘JsRender’, which helps to create the structured way of tree nodes with simple codes and increased performance. To know more about JsRender - http://www.jsviews.com/.

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.

    In the view page, specify template format and add TreeView element

  • html
  • <script id="treeTemplate" type="text/x-jsrender">
                {{if HasChild}}

    Custom action in nodes

    You can able to perform custom action in TreeView template node. You can able to perform node delete operation while clicking delete icon by using removeNode method of TreeView as shown in below code example.

  • html
  • <script type="text/javascript">
            function onCreate(args) {
                var treeObj = $("#<%= treeView.ClientID %>").data("ejTreeView");
                $("#<%= treeView.ClientID %>").find(".cont-delete").bind("click", function (e) {
                    e.preventDefault();
                    treeObj.removeNode($(e.target).parents("li").first());
                });
            }
        </script>
