How to render TreeGrid inside tab or hidden element

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejTreeGrid

When we render the TreeGrid inside the hidden element, TreeGrid control’s height and width was not get update properly due to the existence of scroll bar. We need to refresh its height/width while making the TreeGrid container as visible.


A sample was prepared and rendered the TreeGrid inside the hidden tab.

The following code explains, how to render the TreeGrid inside Tab control.


    <div id="defaultTab">
            <li><a href="#Tab1">Chart</a></li>
            <li><a href="#Tab2">TreeGrid</a></li>
        <div id="Tab1">
                <div id="chart"></div>
        <div id="Tab2">
                <div id="treegrid"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
                itemActive: "beforeActive"
         var dateFormat = "{0:" +   ej.preferredCulture()["calendars"]["standard"]["patterns"]["d"] + "}";
                dataSource: sampleData,
                childMapping: "subtasks",
                treeColumnIndex: 1,
                isResponsive: true,
                columns: [
                    { field: "taskID", headerText: "Task Id" },
                    { field: "taskName", headerText: "Task Name" },
                    { field: "startDate", headerText: "Start Date", format: dateFormat        },
                    { field: "endDate", headerText: "End Date", format: dateFormat },
                    { field: "duration", headerText: "Duration" },
                    { field: "progress", headerText: "Progress" }
//Method to refresh the TreeGrid size while the control changes from hidden state to visible state.
        function beforeActive(args) {
            if (args.activeIndex == 1) {
                var treeGridObj = $("#treegrid").data("ejTreeGrid"),
                    sizeSettings = {
                        width: "100%"
                if (treeGridObj)
                    treeGridObj.option("sizeSettings", sizeSettings);

Hi, thanks for the answer.

The sample works but it's different to my case. My problem with treegrid's scrrollbar is when these is inside a grid details.. the problem isn't for the tab control.

Try to put the treegrid inside row details, and then inside a tab control, and that will be the same case.

Can you help me to solve this, please?

Thanks in advance

Hi Ariel,

We have checked the reported issue with grid details template sample. In this sample, we have replaced ejGrid by ejTreeGrid control in detail template and we have also faced the reported error. This issue was occurred due to TreeGrid control container’s width and height values are changed while rendering ejTab control, because TreeGrid control was initialized before rendering the tab control. And tab control was rendered with selectedItemIndex as 1, so itemActive event also not triggered while rendering TreeGrid and Tab control on expanding the details view. This issue can be resolved by initializing the TreeGrid control after rendering the Tab control. We have modified the Grid details template sample based on your requirement, please find the sample link below.

In above sample TreeGrid control was rendered inside the active tab, please refer below sample link to render TreeGrid control inside the non-active tab.

Sample link – http://jsplayground.syncfusion.com/qz5py2rb

While rendering the TreeGrid in non-active tab, we have to update the sizeSettings value of TreeGrid in itemActive event of tab control to resolve this alignment issue.


Please let us know if you require further assistance on this.
