You can change the column headerText dynamically through an external button.

Follow the given steps to change the header text dynamically:

Step 1:

Get the column object corresponding to the field name by using the getColumnByField method.
Then change the header Text value.

      /** get the JSON object of the column corresponding to the field name */
      let column =  this.$refs.treegrid.getColumnByField("duration");
      /** assign a new header text to the column */
      column.headerText = "Changed Text";

Step 2:

To reflect the changes in the Tree Grid header, invoke the refreshColumns method.

<div id="app">
        <ejs-button @click.native='changeHeader'>Change HeaderText</ejs-button>
        <ejs-treegrid :dataSource="data" :treeColumnIndex="1" height='280px' childMapping="subtasks" ref="treegrid">
          <e-column field="taskID" headerText="Task ID" width="70" textAlign="Right"></e-column>
          <e-column field="taskName" headerText="Task Name" width="100"></e-column>
          <e-column field="startDate" headerText="Start Date" format="yMd" width="90" textAlign="Right"></e-column>
          <e-column field="endDate" headerText="End Date" width="100" format="yMd" textAlign="Right"></e-column>
          <e-column field="duration" headerText="Duration" width="90" textAlign="Right" ></e-column>
          <e-column field="progress" headerText="Progress" width="90" textAlign="Right" ></e-column>
import Vue from "vue";

export default {
  data() {
    return {
      data: sampleData,
  methods: {
    changeHeader: function() {
      let column =  this.$refs.treegrid.getColumnByField("duration");
