Hi Robert,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products,

We have analyzed your requirement and we have achieved this by customizing the treeview functionalities in node click event.

Please refer the below code snippet

<script type="text/javascript">

var treeObj;

$(function () {

$("#treeView").ejTreeView({ expandOn:"",showCheckbox: true,nodeClick:"selectCheckBox"});

treeObj= $("#treeView").ejTreeView('instance');


function selectCheckBox(args) {

if(args.currentElement.nodeName=="A") {

var element=$(args.currentElement).parents("li.e-item")[0];


!isChecked ? treeObj.checkNode(element):treeObj.uncheckNode(element);




In this we have disabled the “expand and collapse in double click” by setting “expandOn” as empty string (“”).

For your convenience we have prepared the simple sample based on this it can be downloaded from below location.


Please check with the given sample and let us know if you have further queries.
