Sorting treeview level wise in EJ2 JavaScript Treeview control

2 May 20238 minutes to read

You can sort the TreeView nodes based on their level. When using the sortOrder property, the whole TreeView is sorted. When you sort a particular level, you can use the following code sample. The following code sample demonstrates how to sort the parent node alone in TreeView.

 * Accordion tree sample

// Hierarchical data source for TreeView component
 var countries = [
    { id: 1, name: 'India', hasChild: true },
    { id: 2, pid: 1, name: 'Assam' },
    { id: 3, pid: 1, name: 'Bihar' },
    { id: 4, pid: 1, name: 'Tamil Nadu' },
    { id: 6, pid: 1, name: 'Punjab' },
    { id: 7, name: 'Brazil', hasChild: true },
    { id: 8, pid: 7, name: 'ParanĂ¡' },
    { id: 9, pid: 7, name: 'CearĂ¡' },
    { id: 10, pid: 7, name: 'Acre' },
    { id: 11, name: 'France', hasChild: true },
    { id: 12, pid: 11, name: 'Pays de la Loire' },
