Solution description

To get the path from the root element to the select node we are using the following method which is called every time a TreeView node is selected.

getParents(indexArray, index, tree) {
  if (tree[indexArray[index]]) {
    if (index + 1 !== indexArray.length) {
      this.currentPath += tree[indexArray[index]].text + ' > ';
    } else {
      this.currentPath += tree[indexArray[index]].text;

  if (index < indexArray.length && tree[indexArray[index]].items) {
    this.getParents(indexArray, index + 1, tree[indexArray[index]].items);
