VB.NET sample

Any chance I can find some VB.NET samples on how to use the treeview (both local and remote data)? I am trying to make my first project with Syncfusion on a ASP MVC application, but I am struggling to convert the C# samples to VB...

Hi Koen, 

Greetings from Syncfusion support. 

We have prepared a Syncfusion EJ2 TreeView sample using VB.NET. Please download the sample from the link below, 

We have prepared the sample as per the following steps 
1. Create a VB MVC sample. 
2. Install the Syncfusion MVC package (Syncfusion.EJ2.MVC5) by using the nuget 
3. Now add the following scripts and styles cdn links and ScriptManager in the “_Layout.vbhtml” file. 
@Imports Syncfusion.EJ2 
<!DOCTYPE html> 
    <!-- Syncfusion Essential JS 2 Styles --> 
    <link rel="stylesheet" rel='nofollow' href="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/material.css" /> 
    <!-- Syncfusion Essential JS 2 Scripts --> 
    <script src="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/dist/ej2.min.js"></script> 

4. Add the “Syncfusion.EJ2” Assembly reference to the “Web.config” file.’ 
<pages pageBaseType="System.Web.Mvc.WebViewPage"> 
        <add namespace="VBSample" /> 
        <add namespace="Syncfusion.EJ2" /> 

We have used the following code snippet to render the treeview in VB.NET. Please refer the code snippets below, 
// For local data Source 
@Imports Syncfusion.EJ2 
@Imports Syncfusion.EJ2.Navigations 
<div id="ControlRegion"> 
    @Html.EJS().TreeView("listdata").Fields(Function(field) field.Id("Id").DataSource(ViewBag.data).ParentID("ParentId").Text("Text").HasChildren("hasChild")).Render() 
Dim treedata As New List(Of Data)() 
treedata.Add(New Data() With { 
.Id = "1", 
.Text = "Australia", 
.hasChild = True 
treedata.Add(New Data() With { 
.Id = "2", 
.Text = "Victoria", 
.ParentId = "1" 
treedata.Add(New Data() With { 
.Id = "3", 
.Text = "Western Australia", 
.ParentId = "1" 
treedata.Add(New Data() With { 
.Id = "5", 
.Text = "Brazil", 
.hasChild = True 
treedata.Add(New Data() With { 
.Id = "13", 
.Text = "China", 
.hasChild = True 
ViewBag.data = treedata 
Return View() 

// Remote dataSource 
Dim data As Object = New Syncfusion.EJ2.DataManager With { 
.Url = "https://services.odata.org/V4/Northwind/Northwind.svc", 
.Adaptor = "ODataV4Adaptor", 
.CrossDomain = True 
parentData.Query = "new ej.data.Query().from('Employees').select('EmployeeID,FirstName,Title').take(5)" 
parentData.Id = "EmployeeID" 
parentData.Text = "FirstName" 
parentData.HasChildren = "EmployeeID" 
parentData.Child = childData 
parentData.DataSource = data 
childData.Query = "new ej.data.Query().from('Orders').select('OrderID,EmployeeID,ShipName').take(5)" 
childData.Id = "OrderID" 
childData.Text = "ShipName" 
childData.ParentId = "EmployeeID" 
childData.DataSource = data 
ViewBag.remoteFields = parentData 
Return View() 

Note: Navigate to 'About' to render treeview using remote data source. 

Please check the sample and get back to us if you need any further assistance.
