Customize ListView with dynamic tags

You can customize the ListView items using the template property. Here, the dynamic tags are added and removed in the list item from another ListView. Refer to the following steps to achieve this.

  • Initialize dynamic ListView with required property that holds the tags of parent ListView, and bind the select event (triggers when the list item is selected), in which you can get and add the selected item value as tags into parent ListView. Refer to the following code sample.
//Select the event that is is rendered inside dialog for ListView
addTag(e) {
    let listTag = document.createElement('span');
    listTag.className = 'advanced-option';
    let labelElem = document.createElement('span');
    labelElem.className = 'label';
    let deleteElem = document.createElement('span');
    deleteElem.className = 'delete';
    deleteElem.onclick = this.removeTag;
    labelElem.innerHTML = e.text;
    listTag.appendChild(labelElem);
    listTag.appendChild(deleteElem);
    let tag = document.createElement('span');
    tag.className = 'advanced-option-list';
    tag.appendChild(listTag);
    this.listviewInstance.element.querySelector('.e-active').appendChild(tag);
}
  • Render the dialog component with empty content and append the created dynamic ListView object to the dialog on created event.

  • Bind the click event for button icon (+) to update the ListView data source with tags, and open the dialog with this dynamic ListView. Refer to the following code sample.

//Method to hide/show the dialog and update the ListView data source
renderDialog(id) {
    if (document.getElementsByClassName('e-popup-open').length != 0) {
        this.dialog.hide();
    }
    else {
        this.listObj.dataSource = this.datasource[id];
        this.listObj.dataBind();
        this.dialog.show();
    }

}
  • Bind the click event with added dynamic tags to remove it. Refer to the following code sample.
//Method to remove the list item
removeTag() {
    this.parentNode.parentNode.remove();
}
