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 the columns 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.

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.

  • 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 columns.format property. The TreeGrid uses Internalization library to format number and date values.

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 columns.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

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.

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.

To use reordering, inject the Reorder module in the treegrid.

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.

To use the column resize, inject Resize module in the treegrid.

  • You can disable resizing for a particular column by setting the columns.allowResizing 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 columns->minWidth and columns->maxWidth.

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

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.

The following screenshot represents the column resizing in touch device.

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.

  <script id="template" type="text/x-template">
            <div class="template_checkbox">

Column type

Column type can be specified using the columns.type property. 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:

  • string
  • 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.

To use the column menu, inject the ColumnMenu module in the treegrid.

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

Checkbox Column

To render checkboxes in existing column, you need to set [columns.showCheckbox] property 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.
