The tree package provides an advanced tree view control with numerous appearance options, extensive customization capabilities, and a data-bound mode that lets you easily visualize a grouped view of relational data.
Single or multiple modes can be selected in a tree. Selected nodes can be easily dragged within or outside the tree using OLE drag-and-drop. While using multiple-selection mode, you can also specify whether you want to allow nodes to be selected within the same level or across different levels.
The advanced tree view control has support for displaying large amounts of data. It lets users bind trees to a huge data set and load and expand nodes on demand.
The advanced tree view control provides options for including context menus which can be displayed when a tree node is right-clicked.
Trees come with several appearance and layout customization options to tailor the look and feel of nodes to your needs.
The labels of individual tree nodes can be edited at run time in the advanced tree view control. A node label being edited is illustrated below:
The style architecture employed by the advanced tree view control lets users define unique styles for different parts of a tree. Each node then inherits these different styles before being rendered. The different styles users can specify in the tree by order of inheritance are: Global (defined in advanced tree view instance), Child (defined in a parent node that applies to all immediate children of the parent node), Node Level (defined for nodes at a particular level in the tree), Node Specific (defined in each tree node). In addition, users can define base styles that can be inherited when defining any of the above styles.
Syncfusion architecture allows users to sort nodes at any level using the text, check box, and tag properties, or provide custom sort compares to customize the sort key on which sorting is performed.
The advanced tree view control’s architecture provides a seamless way to consume information from hierarchical data sources, such as XML, and display it. This allows users to bind XML data from a variety of sources such as external XML files, dataset objects, and more.
The advanced tree view controls provide support for search and replace in a specific tree node present in the advanced tree view control.
