UI Virtualization

UI virtualization loads only viewable list items in a view port, which will improve the ListView performance while loading a large number of data.

Getting started

UI virtualization can be enabled in the ListView by setting the enableVirtualization property to true.

It has two types of scrollers as follows:

Window scroll: This scroller is used in the ListView by default.

Container scroll: This scroller is used, when the height property of the ListView is set.

ListController.cs
<ejs-listview id="ui-list" dataSource="ViewBag.listData" enableVirtualization="true" height="500" >
    </ejs-listview>

<style>
    #ui-list {
    display: block;
    max-width: 400px;
    margin: auto;
    border: 1px solid #dddddd;
    border-radius: 3px;
    cursor: pointer;
}

public class ListViewController : Controller
{
    public IActionResult List()
    {
        List<object> listData = new List<object>();
        listData.Add(new { text = "Nancy", id = "0" });
        listData.Add(new { text = "Andrew", id = "1" });
        listData.Add(new { text = "Janet", id = "2" });
        listData.Add(new { text = "Margaret", id = "3" });
        listData.Add(new { text = "Steven", id = "4" });
        listData.Add(new { text = "Laura", id = "5" });
        listData.Add(new { text = "Robert", id = "6" });
        listData.Add(new { text = "Michael", id = "7" });
        listData.Add(new { text = "Albert", id = "8" });
        listData.Add(new { text = "Nolan", id = "9" });


            for (int i = 10; i < 1000; i++)
            {
                int index = new Random().Next(0, 10);
                listData.Add(new
                {
                    text = listData[index].GetType().GetProperty("text").GetValue(listData[index], null).ToString(),
                    id = i.ToString()
                });
            }

        ViewBag.listData = listData;
        return View();
    }
}

Output be like the below.

ASP .NET Core ListView - Virtualization

We can use template property to customize list items in UI virtualization.

tagHelper
ListController.cs
@{ var template = "<div class='list-container'><div id='icon' class=\"${$imgUrl ? \'img\' : $icon }\">" +
           "<span class=\"${$imgUrl ? \'hideUI\' : \'showUI\' }\">" +
           "${icon}</span> <img class=\"${$imgUrl ? \'showUI\' : \'hideUI\' }\" width = 45 height = 45 src=\"${$imgUrl ?  $imgUrl : \' \' }\" />" +
           "</div><div class='text'>${text}</div></div>";
    }

ASP .NET Core ListView - Virtualization Template

Conditional rendering

The following conditional rendering support is provided for the template and groupTemplate.

Name Syntax
conditional class <div class="${ $id % 2 === 0 ? 'even-list' : 'odd-list'}"></div>
conditional attribute <div id="${ $id % 2 === 0 ? 'even-list' : 'odd-list'}"></div>
conditional text content <div>${ $id % 2 === 0 ? 'even-list' : 'odd-list'}</div>

In the following sample, the light blue is applied for the even list and light coral is applied for the odd list based on the conditional class.

ListController.cs
@{ var template = "<div id='list-container' class=\"${ $id % 2 === 0 ? \'even-list\' : \'odd-list\' }\" > ${text} </div>"; }
