cssClass

Specifies a CSS class to be applied to the item.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined

disabled

Specifies whether the UI component item responds to user interaction.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

html

Specifies the HTML markup to be inserted into the item element.

Type:

String

The Gantt component evaluates the html property's value. This evaluation, however, makes the Gantt potentially vulnerable to XSS attacks. To guard against these attacks, encode the HTML markup before you assign it to the html property. Refer to the following help topic for more information: Potentially Vulnerable API - html.

You can use the text property as a safe alternative.

locateInMenu

Specifies when to display an item in the toolbar's overflow menu.

Default Value: 'never'

location

Specifies the toolbar item's location.

Default Value: 'before'

Whatever template you use for UI component items (default or a custom) will be located according to the value specified for the location field in the item data source object.

See Also

menuItemTemplate

Specifies a template that should be used to render a menu item.

Type:

template

Template Data: undefined

The following types of the specified value are available.

  • Assign a string containing the name of the required template.
  • Assign a jQuery object of the template's container.
  • Assign a DOM Node of the template's container.
  • Assign a function that returns the jQuery object or a DOM Node of the template's container.

name

options

Configures the DevExtreme UI component used as a toolbar item.

Type: any

NOTE
If you use the Menu UI component as a toolbar item, the adaptivityEnabled property does not apply.

showText

Specifies when to display the text for the UI component item.

Type:

ShowTextMode

Default Value: 'always'

The text should be specified in the options configuration object.

NOTE
This property is available only if the widget property's value is "dxButton".

template

Specifies a template that should be used to render this item only.

Type:

template

Template Data:

CollectionWidgetItem

The item object to be rendered.

The following types of the specified value are available.

  • Assign a string containing the name of the required template.
  • Assign a jQuery object of the template's container.
  • Assign a DOM Node of the template's container.
  • Assign a function that returns the jQuery object or a DOM Node of the template's container.

The following example adds a custom item to the component. Note that Angular and Vue use custom templates instead of the template property. In React, specify the render or component properties.
