Listview with hyper link navigation in EJ2 JavaScript Listview control

8 Aug 20232 minutes to read

We can use anchor tag along with href attribute in our ListView template property for navigation.

let anchor_template: string = "<a target='_blank' href='${url}'>${name}</a>";

In the below sample, we have rendered ListView with search engines URL.

//Define an array of JSON data
var dataSource = [
    { name: 'Google', url: '' },
    { name: 'Bing', url: '' },
    { name: 'Yahoo', url: '' },
    { name: '', url: '' },
    { name: '', url: '' },
var anchor_template = "<a target='_blank' href='${url}'>${name}</a>";

// Initialize ListView component
var listObj = new ej.lists.ListView({

    //Set defined data to dataSource property
    dataSource: dataSource,

    //Set header title
    headerTitle: 'Search engines',

    //Set true to show header title
    showHeader: true,

    template: anchor_template


//Render initialized ListView component
