Tree Grid: Column Freeze and custom hide and show of columns not working at the same time


I have one issue with the treegrid angular.

The goal is to dynamically show and hide columns if a row is collapsing or expanding

By default, 1 column is set to isFrozen = true and isShowColumns = false  (this is to work hide columns) -> This is working fine. 

The issue was when I tried to expand to show the columns, I used getColumnByField to set visible to true, otherwise. Then followed by calling refreshColumns() as in the document to reflect changes, but it doesn't work. No error in the console but the table is broken like an empty table. I tried not to call the refreshColumns() but it doesn't work or no changes on the table but the table is fine

isShowColumns = false;

expanding(args: any): void {
if (args.data.id) {
this.treegrid.getColumnByField('funding').visible = true;
this.treegrid.getColumnByField('fees').visible = true;


<ejs-treegrid #treegrid [dataSource]="dataList"
[childMapping]="'testChild'" [treeColumnIndex]='1'
[enableCollapseAll]="true" rowHeight='70'

<e-column field="test" headerText="test" isFrozen="true" width="100"
<ng-template #template let-data>
<ng-container *ngIf="data.level > 0">
<e-column field="test1" headerText="test1" [visible]="isShowColumn" width="100" textAlign="Right">
<ng-template #template let-data>
<e-column field="test2" headerText="test2" width="100" textAlign="Right" [visible]="isShowColumn">
<ng-template #template let-data>
