21 Sep 20224 minutes to read

You can render any components in a Tree Grid column using the template property.

Initialize the column template for your custom component. The template property renders the custom component.

In the following sample, the DropDownList is rendered in the Priority column.

import { Component, OnInit, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { projectData } from './datasource';
import { TreeGridComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-treegrid';
import { DropDownListComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-dropdowns';

    selector: 'app-container',
    template: `<ejs-treegrid #treegridObj [dataSource]='data' idMapping='TaskID' parentIdMapping='parentID' [treeColumnIndex]='1' [height]='315' >
            <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' textAlign='Right' [format]='formatOptions' width='90'></e-column>
            <e-column field='EndDate' headerText='End Date' textAlign='Right' [format]='formatOptions' width='90'></e-column>
            <e-column field='Duration' headerText='Duration' width='90' textAlign='Right'></e-column>
            <e-column  headerText='Priority' width='90'>
             <ng-template #template let-data>
              <ejs-dropdownlist value='Normal' [dataSource]='dropData' (change)='onChange($event)' >
export class AppComponent implements OnInit {

    public data: Object[] = [];
    public formatOptions: Object;
    public dropData: string[];

    ngOnInit(): void { = projectData;
        this.formatOptions = { format: 'y/M/d', type: 'date' };
        this.dropData = ['Normal', 'Low', 'High', 'Critical', 'Breaker'];
    public onChange(args: any): void {
     /** Event will trigger when you have change the value in dropdown column */
import { NgModule,ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { TreeGridModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-treegrid';
import { PageService, SortService, FilterService } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-treegrid';
