15 Dec 20182 minutes to read

In ListView, you can enable the built-in Header support. To show or hide the Header in ListView, use the [data-ej-showheader] attribute. By default, ListView is rendered with the Header. You can set the title for the Header by using the [data-ej-headertitle]attribute.

In some cases, for the purpose of navigation, you may want to show the Back button in ListView Header. To achieve this, [data-ej-showheaderbackbutton] attribute is used. By default, ListView is not rendered with the header back button in parent page. To customize the text shown in ListView Header Back button, the attribute [data-ej-headerbackbuttontext] is used.

Refer the following code example.

  • HTML
  • <div id="defaultListView">
                <li data-ej-text="Artwork"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Abstract"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="2 Acrylic Mediums"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Creative Acrylic"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Modern Painting"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Canvas Art"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Black white"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Children"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Preschool Crafts"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="School-age Crafts"></li>

    Add the following script in your code.

  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />  
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    module ListComponent {
        $(function () {
            var sample = new ej.ListView($("#defaultListView"), {
                    headerBackButtonText :"Menu",
