TreeSet Datasource

Hi there,

Is it possible to have drop down filled in based on datasource which has tree structure data set (stored in database).

And display / render it with either
  1. Check-box options 
  2. Single selection based option

Hi Prasanthan,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

We can bind the Treestructured data to the Dropdownlist control with the checkboxes using ContentTemplate API. Using ContentTemplate we can define the customized structure for the content of the Dropdownlist control as shown in the following code snippet.


<ej:DropDownList ID="selectFolder" runat="server" ClientIDMode="Static" Width="280px" PopupWidth="280px" PopupHeight="280px" WatermarkText="Select any value">




                            <ej:TreeView ID="Treeview" runat="server" DataTextField="Text" ClientIDMode="Static" DataIdField="ID" DataParentIdField="ParentID"

                                DataHasChildField="HasChild" ClientSideOnNodeExpanded="checkScroll" ClientSideOnNodeChecked="onNodeCheck" ClientSideOnNodeUnchecked="onNodeUnCheck" ClientSideOnNodeSelected="onNodeSelect" ShowCheckbox="true" ClientSideOnNodeCollapsed="checkScroll">







We have prepared the simple sample Dropdownlist with Treeview along with checkbox enabled and the same can be downloaded from the following location.

Hi Saranya,

Here is the ASP.NET MVC forum thread link, if you have an answer for MVC framework please update the forum, otherwise I will wait for an answer 


Apologies for the confusion
