Customize Item Appearance

For a minor customization of List items, you can define specific fields in item data objects. For example, the following code generates three items: each item has a badge, the second is disabled and the third is hidden.

jQuery
JavaScript
const fruits = [
    { text: "Apples", badge: 10 },
    { text: "Oranges", badge: 12, disabled: true },
    { text: "Lemons", badge: 15, visible: false }
];

$(function() {
    $("#listContainer").dxList({
        dataSource: fruits
    });
});
Angular
TypeScript
HTML
import { DxListModule } from "devextreme-angular";
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    fruits = [
        { text: "Apples", badge: 10 },
        { text: "Oranges", badge: 12, disabled: true },
        { text: "Lemons", badge: 15, visible: false }
    ];
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxListModule
    ],
    // ...
})
<dx-list
    [dataSource]="fruits">
</dx-list>
Vue
App.vue
<template>
    <DxList
        :data-source="fruits"
    />
</template>

<script>
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import DxList from 'devextreme-vue/list';

const fruits = [
    { text: "Apples", badge: 10 },
    { text: "Oranges", badge: 12, disabled: true },
    { text: "Lemons", badge: 15, visible: false }
];

export default {
    components: {
        DxList
    },
    data() {
        return {
            fruits
        }
    }
}
</script>
React
App.js
import React from 'react';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import List from 'devextreme-react/list';

const fruits = [
    { text: "Apples", badge: 10 },
    { text: "Oranges", badge: 12, disabled: true },
    { text: "Lemons", badge: 15, visible: false }
];

export default function App() {
    return (
        <List
            dataSource={fruits}
        />
    );
}

If you need a more flexible solution, define an itemTemplate. In Angular and Vue, you can declare it in the markup. In React, you can use a rendering function (shown in the code below) or component:

Angular
HTML
TypeScript
<dx-list
    [dataSource]="fruits"
    itemTemplate="listItem">
    <div *dxTemplate="let item of 'listItem'">
        <b>{{item.name}}</b><br />
        <p style="margin:0px">{{item.count}}</p>
    </div>
</dx-list>
import { DxListModule } from "devextreme-angular";
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    fruits = [
        { name: "Apples", count: 10 },
        { name: "Oranges", count: 12 },
        { name: "Lemons", count: 15 },
        { name: "Pears", count: 20 },
        { name: "Pineapples", count: 3 }
    ];
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxListModule
    ],
    // ...
})
Vue
App.vue
<template>
    <DxList
        :data-source="fruits"
        item-template="list-item">
        <template #list-item="{ data }">
            <div>
                <b>{{ data.name }}</b>
                <br />
                <p style="margin:0px">{{ data.count }}</p>
            </div>
        </template>
    </DxList>
</template>

<script>
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import DxList from 'devextreme-vue/list';

const fruits = [
    { name: "Apples", count: 10 },
    { name: "Oranges", count: 12 },
    { name: "Lemons", count: 15 },
    { name: "Pears", count: 20 },
    { name: "Pineapples", count: 3 }
];

export default {
    components: {
        DxList
    },
    data() {
        return {
            fruits
        }
    }
}
</script>
React
App.js
import React from 'react';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import List from 'devextreme-react/list';

const fruits = [
    { name: "Apples", count: 10 },
    { name: "Oranges", count: 12 },
    { name: "Lemons", count: 15 },
    { name: "Pears", count: 20 },
    { name: "Pineapples", count: 3 }
];

const ListItem = (data) => {
    return (
        <div>
            <b>{ data.name }</b>
            <br />
            <p style={{ margin: '0px' }}>{ data.count }</p>
        </div>
    );
};

export default function App() {
    return (
        <List
            dataSource={fruits}
            itemRender={ListItem}
        />
    );
}

If you use jQuery alone, use DOM manipulation methods to combine the HTML markup for items. To apply this markup, use the itemTemplate callback function as shown in the following code.

JavaScript
const fruits = [
    { name: "Apples", count: 10 },
    { name: "Oranges", count: 12 },
    { name: "Lemons", count: 15 },
    { name: "Pears", count: 20 },
    { name: "Pineapples", count: 3 }
];

$(function() {
    $("#listContainer").dxList({
        dataSource: fruits,
        itemTemplate: function(data, _, element) {
            element.append(
                $("<b>").text(data.fruit), $("<br />"),
                $("<p>").text(data.count).css("margin", 0)
            )
        }
    });
});

You can also customize an individual List item. For this purpose, declare a template for this item as a script and pass its id to the template field.

HTML
JavaScript
<script id="individualTemplate" type="text/html">
    <!-- ... -->
</script>
const fruits = [
    { name: "Apples", count: 10 },
    { name: "Oranges", count: 12, template: $("#individualTemplate") },
    // ...
];

In addition, you can use a 3rd-party template engine to perform the needed customizations. For more information, see the 3rd-Party Template Engines article.
