What tag for the server response and what adaptor to use?


how do I use the the remote data source properly?
If I use your example data (xml) from

it works. But I have a json source which returns sth like this:

{"id":1,"parent_id":0,"name":"Test Folder","subChild":[
{"id":2,"parent_id":1,"name":"Child 1"},
{"id":3,"parent_id":1,"name":"Child 2","subChild":[
{"id":4,"parent_id":3,"name":"Child 3"}
{"id":5,"parent_id":0,"name":"User 2 Folder 1"},
{"id":6,"parent_id":0,"name":"User 2 Folder 2"}]

Do I have to wrap the response in a specific tag, if so what tag? Which Adaptor do I use? I thought that I should use the UrlAdaptor?
It should only be a single request on initialization. Everything else should be handled on the client side.

I wasn't able to find any helpful information in the docs.

Thanks in advance

Hi Christopher, 

Greetings from Syncfusion!!! 

Your requirement can be achieved by using EJ2 DataManger. We have utilized the “mounted” life cycle event to bind the data from the service. 

mounted() { 
methods: { 
    async getData() { 
        const data = await new DataManager({ 
            url: SERVICE_URL 
        }).executeQuery(new Query()); 
        this.fields = { 
            id: "id", 
            text: "name", 
            child: "subChild", 
            dataSource: data.result.defaultData 

Please let us know if you have any concerns.
