Cell editing in EJ2 TypeScript Treegrid control

27 Apr 20233 minutes to read

In Cell edit mode, when you double click on a cell, it is changed to edit state.
You can change the cell value and save to the data source.
To enable Cell edit, set the editSettings.mode as Cell.

import { TreeGrid, Edit, Toolbar } from '@syncfusion/ej2-treegrid';
import { sampleData } from './datasource.ts';

TreeGrid.Inject(Edit, Toolbar);

let treeGridObj: TreeGrid = new TreeGrid({
    dataSource: sampleData,
    childMapping: 'subtasks',
    toolbar: ['Add', 'Delete', 'Update', 'Cancel'],
    editSettings: { allowEditing: true, allowAdding: true, allowDeleting: true, mode: 'Cell' },
    treeColumnIndex: 1,
    columns: [
        { field: 'taskID', headerText: 'Task ID', isPrimaryKey: true, width: 90, textAlign: 'Right'},
        { field: 'taskName', headerText: 'Task Name', width: 180 },
            field: 'startDate', headerText: 'Start Date', width: 90, textAlign: 'Right', editType: 'datepickeredit', type: 'date', format: 'yMd'
        { field: 'duration', headerText: 'Duration', width: 80, textAlign: 'Right' }
    height: 270
