21 Sep 20224 minutes to read

You can achieve the custom tooltip(EJ2 Tooltip) for Tree Grid by using the queryCellInfo event.

Render the ToolTip component for the Tree Grid cells by using the following code in the
queryCellInfo event.

  public tooltip(args: QueryCellInfoEventArgs){
    const tooltip: Tooltip = new Tooltip({
      content: args.data[args.column.field].toString()
    });
    tooltip.appendTo(args.cell as HTMLElement);
  }
import { Component, OnInit, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { projectData } from './datasource';
import { TreeGridComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-treegrid';
import { QueryCellInfoEventArgs } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-grids';
import { Tooltip } from '@syncfusion/ej2-popups';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-container',
    template: `<ejs-treegrid #treegridObj [dataSource]='data' idMapping='TaskID' parentIdMapping='parentID' [treeColumnIndex]='1' [height]='317' (queryCellInfo)='tooltip($event)' >
        <e-columns>
            <e-column field='TaskID' headerText='Task ID' width='70' textAlign='Right'></e-column>
            <e-column field='TaskName' headerText='Task Name' width='100' ></e-column>
            <e-column field='StartDate' headerText='Start Date' width='90' format="yMd" textAlign='Right'></e-column>
            <e-column field='EndDate' headerText='End Date' width='90' format="yMd" textAlign='Right'></e-column>
            <e-column field='Duration' headerText='Duration' width='80' textAlign='Right'></e-column>
            <e-column field='Priority' headerText='Priority' width='90'></e-column>
        </e-columns>
    </ejs-treegrid>`,
})
