21 Sep 20225 minutes to read

You can show/ hide spinner component while exporting the Tree Grid using showSpinner/ hideSpinner methods. You can use toolbarClick event to show spinner before exporting and hide a spinner in the pdfExportComplete or excelExportComplete event after the exporting.

In the toolbarClick event, based on the parameter args.item.text as PDF Export or Excel Export we can call the showSpinner method from Tree Grid instance.

In the pdfExportComplete or excelExportComplete event, We can call the hideSpinner method.

In the below demo, we have rendered the default spinner component when exporting the Tree Grid.

import { Component, OnInit, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { projectData } from './datasource';
import { TreeGridComponent,  ToolbarItems, ToolbarService, PageService, PdfExportService, ExcelExportService  } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-treegrid';
import { ClickEventArgs } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-navigations';

    selector: 'app-container',
    providers: [ToolbarService, PageService, PdfExportService,ExcelExportService],
    template: `<ejs-treegrid #treegridObj [dataSource]='data' idMapping='TaskID' parentIdMapping='parentID'
    [treeColumnIndex]='1' [allowPaging]='true' [pageSettings]='initialPage' [toolbar]='toolbarOptions'
    [allowPdfExport]='true' [allowExcelExport]='true' (excelExportComplete)='excelExportComplete()'
    (pdfExportComplete)='pdfExportComplete()' (toolbarClick)='toolbarClick($event)'>
            <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='100'></e-column>

            <e-column field='Priority' headerText='Priority' width='90'></e-column>
export class AppComponent implements OnInit {

    public data: Object[] = [];
    public formatOptions: Object;
    public toolbarOptions: ToolbarItems[];
    public initialPage: object;

    public treegridObj: TreeGridComponent;

    ngOnInit(): void { = projectData;
        this.formatOptions = { format: 'y/M/d', type: 'date' };
        this.toolbarOptions = ['PdfExport', 'ExcelExport'];
        this.initialPage = { pageCount: 5, pageSize: 5 };
    toolbarClick(args: ClickEventArgs) {
      if (this.treegridObj && args.item.text === 'PDF Export') {
      else if (this.treegridObj && args.item.text === 'Excel Export') {
    pdfExportComplete() {
        if (this.treegridObj) {
    excelExportComplete() {
        if (this.treegridObj) {
