Validate the text when renaming the tree node

You can validate the tree node text while editing using nodeEdited event of the TreeView. Following is an example that shows how to validate and prevent empty values in tree node.

razor
nodevalidate.cs
<div id='treeparent'>
    <div>
        @Html.EJS().TreeView("treedata").NodeEdited("onNodeEdited").AllowEditing(true).Fields(field=>
        field.Id("id").ParentID("pid").Text("name").HasChildren("hasChild").Expanded("expanded")
        .DataSource(ViewBag.dataSource)).Render()
    </div>
 </div>
 <div id="display"></div>
<style>
    #treeparent {
                display: block;
                max-width: 350px;
                max-height: 350px;
                margin: auto;
                overflow: auto;
                border: 1px solid #dddddd;
                border-radius: 3px;
            }

            #display {
                max-width: 500px;
                margin: auto;
                padding: 10px;
            }
</style>
