How to refresh the datasource

You can add/delete the datasource records through an external button. To reflect the datasource changes in Tree Grid, you need to assign the modified data to dataSource property.

Please follow the below steps to refresh the Tree Grid after datasource change.

Step 1:

Add/delete the datasource record by using the following code.

    const dataSource: object = extendArray((this.treegridObj as TreeGridComponent).dataSource as object[]);

    // Added New Record.
    (dataSource as object[]).unshift({ TaskID: 99, TaskName: "New Data", StartDate: new Date('02/03/2017'), Duration: 10 });

    // Delete record.
    (dataSource as object[]).splice(selectedRowIndex, 1);

Step 2:

Refresh the Tree Grid after the datasource change by assign the modified data to dataSource property.

    (this.treegridObj as TreeGridComponent).dataSource = dataSource; // Refresh the TreeGrid.
import { Component, OnInit, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { projectData } from './datasource';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-container',
    template: `<button #btn1 ejs-button cssClass="e-flat"  (click)="add()">Add</button>
    <button #btn2 ejs-button cssClass="e-flat" (click)="delete()">Delete</button>
