Customize the icon for column menu in EJ2 JavaScript Treegrid control

27 Apr 20234 minutes to read

You can customize the column menu icon by overriding the default Tree Grid class .e-icons.e-columnmenu with a custom property content as mentioned below,

    .e-treegrid .e-columnheader .e-icons.e-columnmenu::before {
        content: "\e903";
    }

In the below sample, Tree Grid is rendered with a customized column menu icon.

ej.treegrid.TreeGrid.Inject(ej.treegrid.ColumnMenu);

var treeGrid = new ej.treegrid.TreeGrid({
  dataSource: window.projectData,
  idMapping: "TaskID",
  parentIdMapping: "parentID",
  treeColumnIndex: 1,
  height: 315,
  showColumnMenu: true,
  columns: [
    { field: "TaskID", headerText: "Task ID", textAlign: "Right", width: 70 },
    { field: "TaskName", headerText: "Task Name", width: 100 },
    { field: "StartDate", headerText: "Start Date", textAlign: "Right", width: 90,
      format: { skeleton: "yMd", type: "date" } },
    { field: "EndDate", headerText: "End Date", textAlign: "Right", width: 90,
      format: { skeleton: "yMd", type: "date" } },
    { field: "Duration", headerText: "Duration", textAlign: "Right", width: 90 },
    { field: "Priority", headerText: "Priority", width: 90 }
  ]
});
treeGrid.appendTo("#TreeGrid");
