    Hi there,

    I have a tree view control on my view and I am binding to a json data source in controller code.

           <div kendo-tree-view="tvc.tree"

    Controller Code :

    $scope.tvc = {};

            $scope.tvc.treeData = new{
                transport: {
                    read: {
                        url: options.api.base_url + "/GeoCodeData",
                        dataType: "json"
                schema: {
                    model: {
                        id: "GeoCode",
                        hasChildren: function (e) {
                            return true;

            $scope.tvc.treeOptions = {
                checkboxes: {
                    checkChildren: true
                dataTextField: "GeoCode"

    Everything works fine when it loads the root node. On subsequent expansion of nodes, it fetches data again by querying datasource. The only parameter passed is "GeoCode" which is defined in schema model.

    My requirement is to pass additional filters. The model, with which tree view is binding contains 3 properties. I need to pass like this.


    Currently, it is fetching like this :


    Any pointers will be appreciated.

    Hello Manpreet,

    You can pass additional data along with the request by setting the field. If you need to compute the URL each time, set the field as a function. For maximum flexibility, you can define as a function and make the AJAX request manually -- see the custom binding help topic.
