Methods

This section describes methods that you can use to manipulate the TreeList widget in code.

addColumn(columnOptions)

Adds a new column.

Parameters:
columnOptions:

Object

|

String

The column's configuration or a data field for which the column should be created.

See Also

addRow()

Adds an empty data row to the highest hierarchical level.

addRow(parentId)

Adds an empty data row to a specified parent row.

Parameters:
parentId: any

The parent row's ID.

beginCustomLoading(messageText)

Shows the load panel.

Parameters:
messageText:

String

The text for the load panel to display.

Normally, the load panel is invoked automatically while the widget is busy rendering or loading data. Additionally, you can invoke it by calling this method. If you call it without the argument, the load panel displays text specified by the loadPanel.text option. To specify the appearance of the load panel, use the loadPanel object. Once invoked from code, the load panel will not hide until you call the endCustomLoading() method.

NOTE
The load panel invoked from code does not replace the automatically invoked load panel. This circumstance might lead to a situation where the load panel invoked from code suddenly changes its text because it was overridden by the automatically invoked load panel. Therefore, be mindful when invoking the load panel with different text.
See Also

beginUpdate()

Prevents the widget from refreshing until the endUpdate() method is called.

The beginUpdate() and endUpdate() methods prevent the widget from excessive updates when you are changing multiple widget settings at once. After the beginUpdate() method is called, the widget does not update its UI until the endUpdate() method is called.

See Also

Parameters:

A Promise that is resolved after the data object is loaded. It is a native Promise or a jQuery.Promise when you use jQuery.

The following code shows how to get a data object whose key is 15.

JavaScript
widgetInstance.byKey(15).done(function(dataObject) {
        // process "dataObject"
