30 Mar 2023 / 2 minutes to read

In TreeView component, you can get the original bound data using the getTreeData method. For this method, if you pass the id of the tree node, it returns the corresponding node information, or otherwise the overall tree nodes information will be returned. You can use this method to get the bound iconCss class in the nodeChecking event. Please refer to the following sample.

// Hierarchical data source for TreeView component
  var treeData = [
    "nodeId": "01", "nodeText": "Music", "icon": "folder", "expanded": true,
    "nodeChild": [
      { "nodeId": "01-01", "nodeText": "Gouttes.mp3", "icon": "audio" }
    "nodeId": "02", "nodeText": "Videos", "icon": "folder", "expanded": true,
    "nodeChild": [
      { "nodeId": "02-01", "nodeText": "Naturals.mp4", "icon": "video" },
      { "nodeId": "02-02", "nodeText": "Wild.mpeg", "icon": "video" }

// Render the TreeView with icons
var treeObj = new ej.navigations.TreeView({
  fields: { dataSource: treeData, id: 'nodeId', text: 'nodeText', child: 'nodeChild', iconCss: 'icon', expanded: 'expanded' },
  showCheckBox: true,
  nodeChecking: onNodeChecking,
  autoCheck: false

function onNodeChecking(args) {
  var nodeId =[0].id;
  // To get the iconCss
  var iconClass = this.getTreeData(nodeId)[0].icon;
  alert('Icon class is ' + iconClass);
