Using the following steps, you can create a React TreeView component. The basic rendering of React TreeView is achieved with default functionality.

Create an TreeView

You can create a React application and add necessary scripts and styles with the help of the given React Getting Started Documentation.

Create a JSX file for rendering TreeView component using <EJ.TreeView> syntax. Add required properties to it in <EJ.TreeView> tag element

  • js
  • ReactDOM.render(   
    <EJ.TreeView>
        <ul id="treeView">
              <li id="1" class="expanded">Artwork
                                        <ul>
                                            <li id="2">
                                                Abstract
                                                <ul>
                                                    <li id="3">2 Acrylic Mediums</li>
                                                    <li>Creative Acrylic</li>
                                                    <li>Modern Painting</li>

                        </ul>
    </EJ.TreeView>,
    document.getElementById('treeview')
    );

    Define an HTML element for adding TreeView in the application and refer the JSX file.

  • html
  • <div id="treeview"></div>
    <script type="text/babel" src="treeview.jsx"></script>

    Run the above code to render the following output.

    Data Binding

    The data for TreeView which can be populated using the dataSource property.

    The beforeLoad event will be triggered before loading nodes into TreeView.

  • js
  • "use strict";
    var localData = [
                       { id: 1, name: "Discover Music", hasChild: true, expanded: true },
                       { id: 2, pid: 1, name: "Hot Singles" },
                       { id: 3, pid: 1, name: "Rising Artists" },

                       { id: 13, pid: 11, name: "Bestselling Albums" },
                       { id: 14, pid: 11, name: "New Releases" },
                       { id: 15, pid: 11, name: "Bestselling Songs" },
                       { id: 16, name: "MP3 Albums", hasChild: true },
                       { id: 17, pid: 16, name: "Rock" },
                       { id: 18, pid: 16, name: "Gospel" },
                       { id: 19, pid: 16, name: "Latin Music" },
                       { id: 20, pid: 16, name: "Jazz" },
                       { id: 21, name: "More in Music", hasChild: true },
                       { id: 22, pid: 21, name: "Music Trade-In" },
                       { id: 23, pid: 21, name: "Redeem a Gift Card" },
                       { id: 24, pid: 21, name: "Band T-Shirts" },
                       { id: 25, pid: 21, name: "Mobile MVC" }];
    var fields={id: "id", parentId: "pid", text: "name", hasChild: "hasChild", dataSource: localData, expanded: "expanded"};
    ReactDOM.render(   
      <EJ.TreeView id="treeview" fields={fields}>
      </EJ.TreeView>,
    document.getElementById('treeview')
    );
