Provide custom data source and enabling filtering to DropDownList in JavaScript (ES5) Tree Grid control

You can provide data source to the DropDownList by using the params of columns.edit property.

While setting new data source using edit params, you must specify a new query property for the DropDownList as follows,

      edit: {
        params: {
          actionComplete: () => false,
          allowFiltering: true,
          dataSource: new DataManager(priorityData),
          fields: { text: "priorityName", value: "priorityName" },
          query: new Query()
        }
      }

You can also enable filtering for the DropDownList by passing the allowFiltering as true to the edit params.

In the below demo, DropDownList is rendered with custom dataSource for the Priority column and enabled filtering to search DropDownList items.
