21 Sep 20226 minutes to read

You can enable/disable the Tree Grid and its actions by applying/removing corresponding CSS styles.

To enable/disable the Tree Grid and its actions, follow the given steps:

Step 1:

Create CSS class with custom style to override the default style of Tree Grid.

    .disabletreegrid {
        pointer-events: none;
        opacity: 0.4;
    }
    .wrapper {
        cursor: not-allowed;
    }

Step 2:

Add/Remove the CSS class to the Tree Grid in the click event handler of Button.

public click(): void {
    if (this.treegridObj && this.treegridObj.element.classList.contains('disabletreegrid')) {
      this.treegridObj.element.classList.remove('disabletreegrid');
      (document.getElementById("TreeGridParent") as HTMLElement).classList.remove('wrapper');
    }
    else if (this.treegridObj) {
      this.treegridObj.element.classList.add('disabletreegrid');
      (document.getElementById("TreeGridParent") as HTMLElement).classList.add('wrapper');
    }
  }

In the below demo, the button click will enable/disable the Tree Grid and its actions.
