Columns

The column definitions are used as the dataSource schema in the TreeGrid. This plays a vital role in rendering column values in the required format. The treegrid operations such as sorting, filtering and searching etc. are performed based on column definitions. The field property of e-treegrid-columns tag helper is necessary to map the data source values in TreeGrid columns.

  1. If the column field is not specified in the dataSource, the column values will be empty.
  2. If the field name contains “dot” operator, it is considered as complex binding.

treeColumnIndex property denotes the column that is used to expand and collapse child rows.

Header Template

You can customize the header element by using the headerTemplate property.

tagHelper
headertemplate.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" childMapping="Children" height="315">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" headerTemplate="#projectName" width="220"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText="Start Date" textAlign="Right" headerTemplate="#dateTemplate"
                           format="yMd"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" headerTemplate="#durationTemplate"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Progress" headerText="Progress" textAlign="Right" headerTemplate="#progressTemplate"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>

public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

Header text

By default, column header title is displayed from column field value. To override the default header title, you have to define the headerText value.

tagHelper
default.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1" allowPaging="true">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText=" Start Date" textAlign="Right" format="yMd" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

If both the field and headerText are not defined in the column, the column renders with empty header text.

Format

To format cell values based on specific culture, use the format property of e-treegrid-column tag helper. The TreeGrid uses Internalization library to format the number values.

tagHelper
format.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" childMapping="Children" height="315" treeColumnIndex="1">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="OrderID" headerText="Order ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="OrderName" headerText="Order Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Price" headerText="Price" textAlign="Right" width="90" format="c2" type="number"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetFormatData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

By default, the number and date values are formatted in en-US locale.

Number formatting

The number or integer values can be formatted using the below format strings.

Format Description
N Denotes numeric type.
C Denotes currency type.
P Denotes percentage type

Please refer to the link to know more about Number formatting.

Date formatting

You can format date values either using built-in date format string or custom format string.

For built-in date format you can specify format property as string (Example: yMd). Please refer to the link to know more about Date formatting.

You can also use custom format string to format the date values. Some of the custom formats and the formatted date values are given in the below table.

Format Formatted value
{ type:‘date’, format:‘dd/MM/yyyy’ } 04/07/1996
{ type:‘date’, format:‘dd.MM.yyyy’ } 04.07.1996
{ type:‘date’, skeleton:‘short’ } 7/4/96
{ type: ‘dateTime’, format: ‘dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm a’ } 04/07/1996 12:00 AM
{ type: ‘dateTime’, format: ‘MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss a’ } 07/04/1996 12:00:00 AM

        for (i = 0; i < treegridObj.columns.length; i++) {
            if (treegridObj.columns[i].field == "orderDate") {
                treegridObj.columns[i].format = { type: 'dateTime', format: 'dd/MM/yyyy' };
            }

}

AutoFit specific columns

The autoFitColumns method resizes the column to fit the widest cell’s content without wrapping. You can autofit a specific column at initial rendering by invoking the autoFitColumns method in dataBound event.

tagHelper
autofit.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.datasource" allowResizing="true" dataBound="ondataBound" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="60"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText=" Start Date" textAlign="Right" format="yMd" width="120"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="120"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Progress" headerText="Progress" textAlign="Right" width="120"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>

<script>
    function ondataBound() {
        var treegridObj = document.getElementById("TreeGrid").ej2_instances[0];
        treegridObj.autoFitColumns(["TaskName"]);
    }
</script>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.datasource = tree;
    return View();
}

You can autofit all the columns by invoking the autoFitColumns method without column names.

Reorder

Reordering can be done by drag and drop of a particular column header from one index to another index within the treegrid. To enable reordering, set the allowReordering to true.

tagHelper
default.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.datasource" allowReordering="true" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1" allowPaging="true">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText=" Start Date" textAlign="Right" format="yMd" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.datasource = tree;
    return View();
}

You can disable reordering a particular column by setting the allowReordering property of e-treegrid-column tag helper to false.

Reorder Multiple Columns

Multiple columns can be reordered at a time by using the reorderColumns method.

tagHelper
default.cs
<button id="reorderMultipleCols">Reorder</button>

<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.datasource" allowReordering="true" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText="Start Date" textAlign="Right" format="yMd" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Progress" headerText="Progress" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>


<script>
    document.getElementById('reorderMultipleCols').addEventListener('click', () => {
        var treegridObj = document.getElementById('TreeGrid').ej2_instances[0];
        treegridObj.reorderColumns(['TaskId', 'Duration'], 'Progress');
    });
</script>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.datasource = tree;
    return View();
}

Lock Columns

You can lock columns by using column.lockColumn property. The locked columns will be moved to the first position. Also you can’t reorder its position.

In the below example, Duration column is locked and its reordering functionality is disabled.

Column resizing

Column width can be resized by clicking and dragging the right edge of the column header. While dragging, the width of the respective column will be resized immediately. Each column can be auto resized by double-clicking the right edge of the column header to fit the width of that column based on the widest cell content. To enable column resize, set the allowResizing property to true.

tagHelper
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.datasource" allowResizing="true" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText=" Start Date" textAlign="Right" format="yMd" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>

You can disable resizing for a particular column by setting the allowResizing property of e-treegrid-column tag helper to false. In RTL mode, you can click and drag the left edge of the header cell to resize the column.

Min and max width

Column resize can be restricted between minimum and maximum width by defining the minWidth and maxWidth properties of e-treegrid-column tag helper.

In the following sample, minimum and maximum width are defined for Duration, and Task Name columns.

tagHelper
width.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.datasource" allowResizing="true" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1" allowPaging="true">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" minWidth="170" maxWidth="250" width="180" ></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80" minWidth="50" maxWidth="150"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Progress" headerText="Progress" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.datasource = tree;
    return View();
}

Resize Stacked Column

Stacked columns can be resized by clicking and dragging the right edge of the stacked column header. While dragging, the width of the respective child columns will be resized at the same time. You can disable resize for particular stacked column by setting allowResizing as false to its columns.

tagHelper
default.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" allowPaging="true" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1">
    <e-treegrid-pagesettings pageSize="6"></e-treegrid-pagesettings>
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column headerText="Order Details" textAlign="Center" columns="@( new List<Syncfusion.EJ2.TreeGrid.TreeGridColumn>() { new Syncfusion.EJ2.TreeGrid.TreeGridColumn { Field = "ID", Width = "110", HeaderText = "Order ID", TextAlign= Syncfusion.EJ2.Grids.TextAlign.Right  },
               new Syncfusion.EJ2.TreeGrid.TreeGridColumn { Field = "Name", Width = "220", HeaderText = "Order Name",  TextAlign= Syncfusion.EJ2.Grids.TextAlign.Left },
               new Syncfusion.EJ2.TreeGrid.TreeGridColumn { Field = "OrderDate", Width = "120", HeaderText = "Order Date",  TextAlign= Syncfusion.EJ2.Grids.TextAlign.Right, Format="yMd" }} )">
        </e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column headerText="Shipment Details" textAlign="Center" columns="@( new List<Syncfusion.EJ2.TreeGrid.TreeGridColumn>() { new Syncfusion.EJ2.TreeGrid.TreeGridColumn { Field = "ShipmentCategory", Width = "170", HeaderText = "Shipment Category" },

               new Syncfusion.EJ2.TreeGrid.TreeGridColumn { Field = "Units", Width = "90", HeaderText = "Units",  }} )">
        </e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column headerText="Price Details" textAlign="Center" columns="@( new List<Syncfusion.EJ2.TreeGrid.TreeGridColumn>() { new Syncfusion.EJ2.TreeGrid.TreeGridColumn { Field = "UnitPrice", Width = "180", HeaderText = "Price per unit", Format = "c2", Type="number", TextAlign= Syncfusion.EJ2.Grids.TextAlign.Right },
               new Syncfusion.EJ2.TreeGrid.TreeGridColumn { Field = "Price", HeaderText = "Total Price", Width="160", Format="c", Type="number", TextAlign= Syncfusion.EJ2.Grids.TextAlign.Right }} )">
        </e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetStackedData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

Touch interaction

When the right edge of the header cell is tapped, a floating handler will be visible over the right border of the column. To resize the column, tap and drag the floating handler as needed.

The following screenshot represents the column resizing in touch device.

    ViewBag.dataSource = tree;
    return View();
}

TreeGrid actions such as editing, filtering and sorting etc. will depend upon the column field. If the field is not specified in the template column, the treegrid actions cannot be performed.

Using condition template

You can render the template elements based on condition.

In the following code, checkbox is rendered based on Approved field value.

tagHelper
default.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" childMapping="Children" height="315" treeColumnIndex="1">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column headerText="Approved" template="#template" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>

<script id="template" type="text/x-template">
    <div class="template_checkbox">
        ${if(Approved)}
        <input type="checkbox" checked>
        ${else}
        <input type="checkbox"> ${/if}
    </div>
</script>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

Column type

Column type can be specified using the type property of e-treegrid-column tag helper. It specifies the type of data the column binds.

If the format is defined for a column, the column uses type to select the appropriate format option (number or date).

TreeGrid column supports the following types:

  • number
  • boolean
  • date
  • datetime

If the type is not defined, it will be determined from the first record of the dataSource.

Column menu

The column menu has options to integrate features like sorting, filtering, and autofit. It will show a menu with the integrated feature when users click on multiple icon of the column. To enable column menu, you need to define the showColumnMenu property as true.

The default items are displayed in following table.

Item Description
SortAscending Sort the current column in ascending order.
SortDescending Sort the current column in descending order.
AutoFit Auto fit the current column.
AutoFitAll Auto fit all columns.
Filter Show the filter option as given in FilterSettings.Type
tagHelper
default.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" showColumnMenu="true" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1" allowFiltering="true" allowResizing="true" allowSorting="true" allowPaging="true">
    <e-treegrid-filtersettings type="Menu"></e-treegrid-filtersettings>
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="100"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="190"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText=" Start Date" textAlign="Right" format="yMd" type="date" width="120"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="110"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Progress" headerText="Progress" textAlign="Right" width="110"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

You can disable column menu for a particular column by defining the showColumnMenu property of e-treegrid-column tag helper as false.

Checkbox Column

To render checkboxes in existing column, you need to set [showCheckbox] property of e-treegrid-column as true.

It is also possible to select the rows hierarchically using checkboxes in TreeGrid by enabling [autoCheckHierarchy] property. When we check on any parent record checkbox then the child record checkboxes will get checked.

tagHelper
checkbox.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.datasource" height="400" autoCheckHierarchy="true" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="100"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" showCheckbox="true" width="190"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText=" Start Date" textAlign="Right" format="yMd" type="date" width="120"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="110"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.datasource = tree;
    return View();
}

Responsive columns

You can toggle column visibility based on media queries which are defined at the hideAtMedia. The hideAtMedia accepts valid Media Queries.

tagHelper
responsive.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1" allowPaging="true">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" hideAtMedia="(min-width: 700px)" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText=" Start Date" textAlign="Right" hideAtMedia="(min-width: 500px)" format="yMd" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

Controlling TreeGrid actions

You can enable or disable treegrid action for a particular column by setting the allowFiltering, and allowSorting properties of e-treegrid-column tag helper.

tagHelper
columnActions.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" allowFiltering="true" allowSorting="true" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1" allowPaging="true">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" allowSorting="false" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText=" Start Date" allowFiltering="false" textAlign="Right" format="yMd" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

Show/hide columns by external button

You can show or hide treegrid columns dynamically using external buttons by invoking the showColumns or hideColumns method.

tagHelper
showHide.cs
<ejs-button id="hide" content="Hide Columns"></ejs-button>
<ejs-button id="show" content="showColumns"></ejs-button>

<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" allowFiltering="true" allowSorting="true" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1" allowPaging="true">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" allowSorting="false" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="StartDate" headerText=" Start Date" allowFiltering="false" textAlign="Right" format="yMd" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>

<script>
    document.getElementById('show').onclick = () => {
        var treeGridObj = document.getElementById("TreeGrid").ej2_instances[0];
        treeGridObj.showColumns(['Task ID', 'Duration']); //show by HeaderText
    };

    document.getElementById('hide').onclick = () => {
        var treeGridObj = document.getElementById("TreeGrid").ej2_instances[0];
        treeGridObj.hideColumns(['Task ID', 'Duration']); //hide by HeaderText
    };
</script>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

Complex data binding

You can achieve complex data binding in the treegrid by using the dot(.) operator in the field.

tagHelper
complexData.cs
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1" allowPaging="true">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Assignee.FirstName" headerText="First Name" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

ValueAccessor

The valueAccessor is used to access/manipulate the value of display data. You can achieve custom value formatting by using the valueAccessor.

tagHelper
valueAccessor.cs
@{
    Object orderFormatter = "orderFormatter";
    Object currencyFormatter = "currencyFormatter";
}

<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" childMapping="subTasks" height="315" treeColumnIndex="1">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="orderID" headerText="Order ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="orderName" headerText="Order Name" width="180" valueAccessor="orderFormatter"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="orderDate" headerText="Order Date" format="yMd" textAlign="Right" width="160" ></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="price" headerText="Price" textAlign="Right" width="90"  valueAccessor="currencyFormatter"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>

<script>
    function currencyFormatter(field, data, column) {
        return '€' + data['price'];
    }

    function orderFormatter(field, data, column) {
        return data[field] + '-' + data['category'];
    }

</script>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetFormatData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

Display array type columns

You can bind an array of objects in a column by using the valueAccessor property. In this example, the name field has an array of two objects, FirstName and LastName. These two objects are joined and bound to a column using the valueAccessor.

tagHelper
valueAccessor.cs
@{
    Object valueAccessfn = "orderFormatter";
}
<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" childMapping="Children" treeColumnIndex="1">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskId" headerText="Task ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="TaskName" headerText="Task Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Name" headerText="Assignee" valueAccessor="valueAccessfn" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="Duration" headerText="Duration" textAlign="Right" width="80"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>

<script>
    function orderFormatter(field, data, column) {
        return data[field].map(function(args) {
        return args.FirstName || args.LastName }).join(' ');
    }
</script>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetDefaultData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

Expression column

You can achieve the expression column by using the valueAccessor property.

tagHelper
express.cs
@{
    Object totalPrice = "totalPrice";
}

<ejs-treegrid id="TreeGrid" dataSource="@ViewBag.data" childMapping="subTasks" height="315" treeColumnIndex="1">
    <e-treegrid-columns>
        <e-treegrid-column field="orderID" headerText="Order ID" textAlign="Right" width="90"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="orderName" headerText="Order Name" width="180"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="units" headerText="Units" textAlign="Right" width="120"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="unitPrice" headerText="Unit Price" textAlign="Right" width="120"></e-treegrid-column>
        <e-treegrid-column field="price" headerText="Total Price" textAlign="Right" width="90" valueAccessor="totalPrice"></e-treegrid-column>
    </e-treegrid-columns>
</ejs-treegrid>

<script>
    function totalPrice(field, data, column) {
        return data.units * data.unitPrice;
    };
</script>
public IActionResult Index()
{
    var tree = TreeData.GetFormatData();
    ViewBag.data = tree;
    return View();
}

How to render boolean values as checkbox
