Access the DataSource

Regardless of the data source you use, the TreeList always wraps it in the DataSource. To get a DataSource instance, call the getDataSource() method.

jQuery
JavaScript
var ds = $("#treeListContainer").dxTreeList("getDataSource");
Angular
TypeScript
import { ..., ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { DxTreeListModule, DxTreeListComponent } from 'devextreme-angular';
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    @ViewChild(DxTreeListComponent) treeList: DxTreeListComponent;
    ds: any = {};
    getDataSource () {
        this.ds = this.treeList.instance.getDataSource();
    }
}

You can now call any method exposed by the DataSource. For example, you can reload data using the reload() method.

JavaScript
ds.reload();
