columns[]

Configures columns.

Default Value: undefined
Raised Events: optionChanged

This property accepts an array of objects, where each object configures a single column. If a column does not need to be customized, this array may include the name of the field that provides data for this column.

JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({

calculateCellValue

Calculates custom cell values. Use this function to create an unbound data column.

Type:

Function

Function parameters:
rowData:

Object

The data of the row to which the cell belongs.

Return Value: any

A cell's custom value.

Unlike data columns bound to a data field, unbound columns display custom values returned from the calculateCellValue function. It is called each time a new row is rendered.

In the following code, the calculateCellValue function is used to create an unbound column that displays a calculated sales amount. Data objects contain the Price and UnitsSold fields used in the calculation:

jQuery
index.js
var products = [{
    ProductID: 1,
    ProductName: "Fabrikam SLR Camera 35\" X358 Blue",
    Price: 168,
    UnitsSold: 4
},
// ...
];

$(function() {
    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({
        dataSource: products,
        columns: [{
            caption: "Sales Amount",
            calculateCellValue: function(rowData) {

The following features are disabled in an unbound column, but you can enable them as described in this table:

Feature Action that enables it
Editing Implement the setCellValue function.
Sorting Set the allowSorting property to true.
Filtering Set the allowFiltering property to true.
Searching Set the allowSearch property to true.
Grouping (DataGrid only) Set the allowGrouping property to true.

To invoke the default behavior, call the defaultCalculateCellValue function and return its result.

NOTE
The this keyword refers to the column's configuration.
NOTE
This function is called multiple times for every record: when the record is rendered, when sorting or filtering is applied, and when summaries are computed. It is recommend that you keep calculations inside this function as simple as possible to avoid hindering UI component performance.

The UI component uses the specified display values in sorting, searching, and grouping (in case of DataGrid).

NOTE
The this keyword refers to the column's configuration.

Do not use this property to format text in cells. Instead, use the format, customizeText, or cellTemplate property.

calculateFilterExpression

Specifies the column's custom rules to filter data.

Type:

Function

Function parameters:
filterValue: any

A user input value.
Contains an array if the selectedFilterOperation is one of the following: "between", "anyof", "noneof".

selectedFilterOperation:

String

A selected filter operation.

target:

String

A UI element used to filter data.
Possible values: "filterRow", "headerFilter", "filterBuilder", "search".

Return Value:

Filter Expression

A filter expression.
If you filter data remotely, the filter expression must not contain functions.

The calculateFilterExpression function should return a filter expression. A basic filter expression has the following format:

[selector, comparisonOperator, filterValue]
  • selector
    A dataField or function that returns column values. Pass this.calculateCellValue if your column contains calculated values.

  • comparisonOperator
    One of the following operators: "=", "<>", ">", ">=", "<", "<=", "startswith", "endswith", "contains", "notcontains".

  • filterValue
    A user input value. Values from the selector are compared to this value.

A filter expression for the "between" operation has a different format:

[ [selector, ">=", startValue], "and", [selector, "<=", endValue] ]

The default "between" implementation is inclusive (filter results include the boundary values). In the following code, the calculateFilterExpression function implements an exclusive "between" operation:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({
        // ...
        columns: [{
            calculateFilterExpression: function (filterValue, selectedFilterOperation) {
                // Override implementation for the "between" filter operation
                if (selectedFilterOperation === "between" && $.isArray(filterValue)) {
                    const filterExpression = [
                        [this.dataField, ">", filterValue[0]], 
                        "and", 
                        [this.dataField, "<", filterValue[1]]
                    ];
                    return filterExpression;
                }
                // Invoke the default implementation for other filter operations
                return this.defaultCalculateFilterExpression.apply(this, arguments);
            },

NOTE
  • The this keyword refers to the column's configuration.

  • If you specify a custom header filter data source, a header filter item's value field can contain a single value (for example, 0) or a filter expression. If it is a filter expression, the calculateFilterExpression function does not apply.

columns

Configures columns.

Default Value: undefined

Unlike normal columns, band columns do not hold data. Instead, they collect two or more columns under one column header. To set up this layout, declare the band column using a hierarchical structure. For this, assign the nested columns to the columns field of the band column. For example, the following code declares the "Address" band column and nests three columns within it.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({
        // ...
        columns: [{
            caption: "Address",
            columns: ["City", "Street", "Apartment"]
        }, {
            // ...
        }]
    });
});

        <dxi-column dataField="Apartment"></dxi-column>

                <Column dataField="Street" />
                <Column dataField="Apartment" />
            </Column>
        </TreeList>
    );
}

A nested column has almost every property a regular column has. These properties are described in the columns section of the Reference.

NOTE
There is an exception though: nested columns cannot be fixed alone, therefore specifying the fixed and fixedPosition properties for them is useless. However, the whole band column can be fixed as usual.

For example, the following code specifies the width and sortOrder properties of the "Street" column nested within the fixed "Address" band column.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({
        // ...
        columns: [{
            caption: "Address",
            fixed: true,
            fixedPosition: "right",
            columns: [
                "City", {
                    dataField: "Street",
                    width: 100,
                    sortOrder: "asc"
                },
                "Apartment"

                }]
            }]

cssClass

Specifies a CSS class to be applied to the column.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined

The customizeText function can be called to highlight the matching text correctly when the data displayed in the column matches the search condition.

NOTE
The this keyword refers to the column's configuration.

dataField

Binds the column to a field of the dataSource.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined

The columns array can contain column objects and data field names as strings. If you use column objects, specify the dataField property to bind the object to a column from a data source:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({
        // ...
        columns: [
            "CustomerID",
            { dataField: "EmployeeID", width: 200 },
            "OrderDate",

            <Column dataField="ShipCity" />
        </TreeList>
    );
}
NOTE

Review the following notes about data binding:

  • If you create an unbound column (use the calculateCellValue function), specify the columns[].name property instead of dataField.

  • Data field names cannot be equal to this and should not contain the following characters: ., :, [, and ].

  • Column caption is generated from the dataField value. If you want to use a custom caption, specify it in the caption property. Unlike dataField, caption can contain any characters.

See Also

dataType

Casts column values to a specific data type.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined
Accepted Values: 'string' | 'number' | 'date' | 'boolean' | 'object' | 'datetime'

If a data field provides values of one data type, but the UI component should cast them to another, specify the proper type in this property. In the following code, values of the ID and hireDate fields are cast to numeric and date data types, respectively.

JavaScript
$(function() {

The index of the row the cell belongs to. Begins with 0 on each page. Group rows are included.
Refer to the Column and Row Indexes topic for more information on row indexes.

rowType

String

The row's type.

setValue(newValue, newText) any

A method you should call to change the cell value and, optionally, the displayed value after the editor's value is changed.
See an example in the Custom Editors demo.

NOTE
In batch editing mode, check that the value is actually changed before calling this method to ensure correct cell highlighting.
text

String

displayValue after applying format and customizeText.

value any

The cell value as it is specified in the data source.

watch

Function

Allows you to track a variable and perform actions when it changes. Applies when repaintChangesOnly is true.
This function has the following parameters:

  • getter(data): Function
    A function that returns the variable that should be tracked.

  • handler(newValue): Function
    A function that is called when the variable changes.

Use the editCellTemplate to replace the default editor. In the template, specify the replacement editor's appearance and behavior.

View Demo

Other properties that allow editor customization include:

NOTE

Please review the following notes:

  • If you implement two-way data binding in your template, set twoWayBindingEnabled to false to disable this feature's default implementation.

  • If you specify validationRules, the editCellTemplate must contain a DevExtreme editor to which the TreeList will apply these rules.

See Also

editorOptions

Configures the default UI component used for editing and filtering in the filter row.

Type: any

In this object, you can specify the default UI component's properties (except onValueChanged, which you can specify in onEditorPreparing).

The default editor UI component depends on the column configuration. The following table illustrates the dependency:

Column Configuration Default Editor
dataType: "date"
"datetime"
DateBox
"number" NumberBox
"boolean" CheckBox
"string"
"object"
TextBox
lookup is defined SelectBox

Because of this dependency, editorOptions cannot be typed and are not implemented as nested configuration components in Angular, Vue, and React. In these frameworks, specify editorOptions with an object. We recommend that you declare the object outside the configuration component in Vue and React to prevent possible issues caused by unnecessary re-rendering.

Other properties that allow editor customization include:

See Also

encodeHtml

Specifies whether HTML tags are displayed as plain text or applied to the values of the column.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: true

When true, HTML tags are displayed as plain text; when false, they are applied to the values of the column. If you disable this property, malicious code can be executed. Refer to the following help topic for more information: Potentially Vulnerable API - encodeHtml.

falseText

In a boolean column, replaces all false items with a specified text. Applies only if showEditorAlways property is false.

Type:

String

Default Value: 'false'

See Also

filterOperations

Specifies available filter operations. Applies if allowFiltering is true and the filterRow and/or filterPanel are visible.

Type:

Array<String>

Default Value: undefined
Accepted Values: '=' | '<>' | '<' | '<=' | '>' | '>=' | 'contains' | 'endswith' | 'isblank' | 'isnotblank' | 'notcontains' | 'startswith' | 'between' | 'anyof' | 'noneof'

The following table lists available filter operations by data type. Users can apply these filter operations in the filter row and nested filterBuilder component. The TreeList uses the first operation in each array as the default operation for the specified data type.

dataType filterOperations
"string" [ "contains", "notcontains", "startswith", "endswith", "=", "<>" ]
"numeric" [ "=", "<>", "<", ">", "<=", ">=", "between" ]
"date" [ "=", "<>", "<", ">", "<=", ">=", "between" ]

The nested filter builder also allows users to select from an extended set of operations that include "anyof", "noneof", "isblank", "isnotblank", and names of custom operations (if any).

The filterOperations property can also accept an empty array. In this case, the selectedFilterOperation applies, and users cannot change it.

See Also

filterType

Specifies whether a user changes the current filter by including (selecting) or excluding (clearing the selection of) values. Applies only if headerFilter.visible and allowHeaderFiltering are true.

Type:

String

Default Value: 'include'
Accepted Values: 'exclude' | 'include'

This property accepts the following values.

  • include
    Values in the header filter are unselected initially, and a user can select values to apply a filter.
  • exclude
    All values in the header filter are selected initially. A user can deselect values to change the filter.

This property changes when the user clicks the Select All checkbox in the header filter:

Select All filterType / filterValues
filterType: "include"
filterValues: null
filterType: "exclude"
filterValues: null
See Also

filterValue

Specifies the column's filter value displayed in the filter row.

Type: any
Default Value: undefined
Raised Events: optionChanged

This value is applied using the selectedFilterOperation.

NOTE
The filter row and header filter can work simultaneously. If you specify the filterValue property to set up the filter row, it limits the filter values for the header filter and vice versa: if you specify the filterValues property to set up the header filter, it limits the filter row's filter values.

filterValues

Specifies values selected in the column's header filter.

Type:

Array<any>

Default Value: undefined
Raised Events: optionChanged

If the headerFilter.groupInterval property is set, each value in the filterValues array specifies the beginning of an interval instead of an exact value:

The filter row and header filter can work simultaneously. If you specify the filterValue property to set up the filter row, it limits the filter values for the header filter and vice versa: if you specify the filterValues property to set up the header filter, it limits the filter row's filter values.

isBand

Specifies whether the column organizes other columns into bands.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: undefined

Unlike standard columns, band columns do not contain data. Instead, a band column displays two or more columns underneath its header. To create a banded layout, do one of the following:

The following code uses the isBand and ownerBand properties to display the "City", "Street", and "Apartment" columns under the "Address" band:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({
        // ...

lookup

Specifies properties of a lookup column.

Type:

Object

Default Value: undefined

A lookup column restricts the set of values that can be chosen when a user edits or filters the column. In a lookup column, each cell is a drop-down menu. You can use a lookup column when you need to substitute displayed values with required values. For example, consider that you have two arrays of objects: drivers and buses.

JavaScript
const drivers = [
    { driverID: 1, firstName: "John", lastName: "Smith", busID: 2 },
    { driverID: 2, firstName: "Lizzy", lastName: "Cook", busID: 1 },
    { driverID: 3, firstName: "Brian", lastName: "Hawkins", busID: 3 }
];

const buses = [
    { busID: 1, plates: "123456" },
    { busID: 2, plates: "AB-1234" },
    { busID: 3, plates: "CD-9876" }
];

All drivers have the busID field, which refers to a bus. If drivers is the main dataSource, the Bus ID column displays bus IDs, which provides little information to a user. It will be more useful to display bus license plates instead of IDs. For this, the buses array must be set as a lookup dataSource for the Bus ID column. Then, the names of data fields must be assigned to the valueExpr and displayExpr properties. Values from the valueExpr data field will be replaced with values from the displayExpr data field.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({
        dataSource: drivers,
        // ...
        columns: [{
            dataField: "busID",
            lookup: {
                dataSource: buses,
                valueExpr: "busID",
                displayExpr: "plates"

}

With this code, the Bus ID column contains license plates instead of IDs. Moreover, the user can choose a plate number from the drop-down menu when editing cells or applying a filter to this column.

setCellValue

Specifies a function to be invoked after the user has edited a cell value, but before it will be saved in the data source.

Type:

Function

Function parameters:
newData:

Object

The data object where new data should be set.

value: any

The input value.

currentRowData:

Object

A read-only parameter providing access to the current row data.

Return Value: void |

Promise<void> (jQuery or native)

Return a promise for an asynchronous operation or return nothing.

This function allows you to process user input before it is saved to the data source. It accepts the newData, value, and currentRowData parameters. value is the user input that you should assign to one of the newData fields. Fill the empty newData object with fields whose values should be saved in the current row's data object. The read-only currentRowData parameter can be used to access the current row's data.

If you need to perform asynchronous operations in the setCellValue function, return a promise from it. In the following code, this technique is used to get the Tax value from the server when the State value is changed:

    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({
        // ...
        columns: [{
            dataField: "State",

                return getTaxRates(value)
                    .done(function(data) {
                        newData.State = value;
                        newData.Tax = data.Tax;
                    });
            }
        },
        "Tax",
        // ...

    });
    function getTaxRates(state) {
        var promise = $.ajax({
            // The URL returns { State: 1, Tax: 10 }
            url: "https://www.mywebsite.com/api/getTaxRates",

To invoke the default behavior, call the this.defaultSetCellValue(newData, value) function.

NOTE
The this keyword refers to the column's configuration.

showEditorAlways

Specifies whether the column displays its values using editors.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

A column cell has normal and editing states. In a normal state, the cell value is text. In the editing state, the cell contains an editor that indicates the cell value and allows a user to edit it. In certain cases, a viewer reads the cell value easier if it is indicated by an editor even in the normal state. For example, boolean values are more comprehensible when they are indicated by check boxes. To display editors in cells permanently, set the showEditorAlways property to true.

NOTE

This property has the following peculiarities.

  • The default value of this property depends on the column's dataType. For boolean columns, it is true; for columns of other types - false.
  • If you use templates, setting this property to true means that the column will always use editCellTemplate instead of cellTemplate.

showInColumnChooser

Specifies whether the column chooser can contain the column header.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: true

See Also

sortIndex

Specifies the index according to which columns participate in sorting.

Type:

Number

Default Value: undefined
Raised Events: optionChanged

This property accepts an integer specifying the index of the column in a collection of columns with applied sorting. For example, consider the following data source that can provide data for three columns.

JavaScript
const dataSource = [
    { firstName: "John", lastName: "Doe", title: "Sales Manager" },
    { firstName: "Michael", lastName: "King", title: "Sales Representative" },
    // ...
];

To sort data first by the "Last Name" and then by the "First Name" column, use the following code. Note that the sortOrder property should also be specified.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({
        // ...
        columns: [
            { dataField: "firstName", sortIndex: 1, sortOrder: "asc" },
            { dataField: "lastName", sortIndex: 0, sortOrder: "asc" },

                sortOrder="asc"
            />
        </TreeList>
    );
}

You can set the sortIndex property at design time to specify initial sorting, or change this property using the columnOption method to sort at runtime.

sortingMethod

Specifies a custom comparison function for sorting. Applies only when sorting is performed on the client.

Type:

Function

Function parameters:
value1: any

A value to be compared.

value2: any

A value to be compared.

Return Value:

Number

Specifies whether value1 goes before value2.

Default Value: undefined

This function accepts two cell values and should return a number indicating their sort order:

  • Less than zero
    value1 goes before value2.
  • Zero
    value1 and value2 remain unchanged relative to each other.
  • Greater than zero
    value1 goes after value2.

The string comparison is culture-insensitive by default. Use the following code to make it culture-sensitive:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function () {
    $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList({
        // ...
        columns: [{
            dataField: "fieldName",
            sortingMethod: function (value1, value2) {
                // Handling null values
                if(!value1 && value2) return -1;
                if(!value1 && !value2) return 0;

NOTE
The this keyword refers to the column's configuration.

sortOrder

Specifies the sort order of column values.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined
Accepted Values: undefined | 'asc' | 'desc'
Raised Events: optionChanged

By default, rows are sorted according to the data source. To sort rows in an ascending or descending order, set the sortOrder property to "asc" or "desc". If you need to sort by multiple columns, specify the sortIndex. Otherwise, each sorted column will get a sort index according to its position in the columns array.

trueText

In a boolean column, replaces all true items with a specified text. Applies only if showEditorAlways property is false.

Type:

String

Default Value: 'true'

See Also

type

Specifies the command column that this object customizes.

Type:

String

Accepted Values: 'adaptive' | 'buttons' | 'drag'

validationRules

Specifies validation rules to be checked when cell values are updated.

visible

Specifies whether the column is visible, that is, occupies space in the table.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: true
Raised Events: optionChanged

visibleIndex

Specifies the position of the column regarding other columns in the resulting UI component.

Type:

Number

Default Value: undefined
Raised Events: optionChanged

Visible indexes are normalized after the UI component's creation: the leftmost column is assigned an index of 0; the rightmost column's index becomes equal to the number of visible columns minus 1; other columns get the indexes in between.

IMPORTANT
This index is used in column reordering only. Do not confuse it with the visible column index, which is used to manipulate cells by calling methods, such as getCellElement(rowIndex, visibleColumnIndex), editCell(rowIndex, visibleColumnIndex), etc.
See Also

width

Specifies the column's width in pixels or as a percentage. Ignored if it is less than minWidth.

Type:

Number

|

String

Default Value: undefined

The property supports the following types of values:

  • Number
    The column's width in pixels.
  • String
    A CSS-accepted column width measurement (for example, "55px", "80%" and "auto") except relative units such as em, ch, vh, etc.

    NOTE
    Fixed columns ignore widths specified as a percentage.
