  • Overview

    The ASP.NET MVC TreeList is a data management component with similar functionalities to the Grid component. In addition to the built-in paging, sorting, filtering, data editing and various export options, the TreeList provides the option to display self-referencing data in a user-friendly manner by combining the features of a Grid and a TreeView. The component is suitable for a wide range of use case scenarios, for example displaying and managing organizational structures and grouping employees under their managers.

  • Data Binding

    Use the DataSource component to bind the TreeList control to static arrays, dynamic objects, local or remote data or even SignalR hubs. The built-in AJAX binding is especially useful in ASP.NET MVC scenarios.

  • Scrolling

    The TreeList comes with built-in scrolling functionality enabled by default. However, to guarantee the rendering of scrollbars, you should either define the height of the component for vertical scrolling or define the width of all columns for horizontal scrolling.  


  • Filtering

    If you prefer not to use a Column menu, you can enable a filter row in the header of the ASP.NET MVC TreeList by setting its filterable property to row. Based on the column data type, the filter row displays the appropriate filter types for string, numeric or date inputs and the list of available filter operands, such as “starts with,” “contains,” “is equal to,” etc.

  • Editing

    The data in the TreeList can be edited in several different ways: 
    • Inline editing allows you to modify the content of any cell from the selected row.
    • InCell editing puts the highlighted cell in edit mode.
    • PopUp editing displays a popup form with all values of the current entry and lets you edit them.

  • Columns

    The TreeList component features three column options. The first two, reorder and resize, allow users to structure their data and order items based on their personal preferences. The third option allows the freezing of panes to keep important information in sight at all times.

  • Multi-Column Headers

    The Multi-Column Headers are brought into play when users aim to showcase multi-level headers of a TreeList as part of a particular category or group. This gives you the option to define a column that spans over several sub-columns.

  • Column Menu

    The Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC TreeList features a Column menu that allows users to organize common data commands, such as sort data (in ascending or descending order), hide and unhide columns and apply multiple filters on the data within each column.

  • Rows Selection

    The TreeList supports two types of row selections: 

    • Row selection can be easily enabled by setting the Selectable property to true.
    • Row CheckBox selection can be configured with a definition for selectable columns in the TreeList, which automatically adds a checkbox column as the first column. Furthermore, you can define whether the selection of a row includes all its descendants or not.

  • Drag and Drop

    Users can easily reorder TreeList rows by dragging and dropping them to the desired level of the hierarchical tree (same level, parent level or child level). When this operation is executed, the TreeList will automatically update the parentId field for the item.

  • Row Template

    The TreeList row template offers flexible customization options for styling the rows’ appearance. You can render anything from plain text to images, icons, link buttons and formatted multi-line descriptions.

  • Search Panel

    When dealing with a large dataset, users need an easy way to find the information they need. The Search Box built into the TreeList table header enables users to filter the data and locate only the relevant records.

  • Client-Side Paging

    This feature is intended to help with large data sets within the TreeList. It is currently specifically for the client-side, which means that all of the data has been loaded on the client, but this new feature should help tremendously in the way of performance.

  • Aggregates

Some events are related to data management, such as OnEdit, OnUpdate and OnDelete, and some to visibility like OnExapnd and OnCollapse.

  • TreeList Theming

    You can style the TreeList with the help of 20+ built-in themes and swatches the component comes with. Explore the Default (our own styling), Material (based on the Material Design guidelines) and Bootstrap (which resembles the Bootstrap styling to integrate better) themes and choose the swatch that best suits your application. You can easily customize the available themes with a few lines of CSS or create a new one with the Progress SASS ThemeBuilder application to meet your client’s design requirements.
