How to customize the drag icons while Drag and Drop

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejTreeGrid |
Published Date: September 27, 2018 |
Last Revised Date: May 29, 2019


TreeGrid allows us to customize the row drag and drop indicators and we can achieve this by defining custom styles in the below class names of the HTML elements.

  • e-aboveIcon e-icon - Class name to define the insert above drop icon.
  • e-belowIcon e-icon - Class name to define the insert below drop icon.
  • e-childIcon e-icon - Class name to define the insert as child row drop icon.
  • e-cancelIcon e-icon - Class name to define the row drop restricted icon.


The below code snippet explains how to customize the row drag icons

        .e-treegrid .e-aboveIcon,.e-treegrid .e-belowIcon,.e-treegrid .e-childIcon,.e-treegrid .e-cancelIcon{
            .e-treegrid .e-aboveIcon:before, .e-treegrid .e-belowIcon:before, .e-treegrid .e-childIcon:before, .e-treegrid .e-cancelIcon:before {
                font-size: 24px;
< body>     
<div id="Container" style="width:100%;height:450px;" /> 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
$(function () { 
                dataSource: data, 
< /body>
