The React Tree View is a graphical user interface component that to represents hierarchical data in a tree structure. It provides great performance with its advanced features like load on demand, checkbox support, multiple selection, tree navigation, drag and drop, tree node editing, and template support.

React TreeView data binding

Data binding

Bind data to the Tree View component from any valid data source, such as XML, JSON, and JSONP. The tree data can be local or remote data and fetched using different kinds of adaptors like OData, OData V4, URL, JSON, and Web API.

Load on demand

This component has a load-on-demand (lazy load) option that allows you to load huge amounts of data dynamically, which improves the control’s performance.

Also, child nodes in the control can be loaded from any web services or inserted dynamically.

React TreeView load on demand

React TreeView icon and images

Tree node with icons

Display nodes with labels and icons to present the content in a more readable format. This is helpful in making a typical directory tree and file system.


It provides built-in support for checkboxes, allowing users to select more than one item. The tree view checkbox has a tri-state mode also, which is applicable only for parent nodes. In this mode, the parent node will go into the indeterminate state when the child nodes are partially checked.

React TreeView checkbox support

Drag and drop

Nodes can be dragged and dropped at all levels of the same TreeView.

React TreeView component drag and drop inside a tree

Inside the tree

Tree nodes can be dragged and dropped from one parent node to another within the same level or at different levels.

React TreeView component drag and drop between trees

To an outside tree

Extending the drop behavior allows users to drop tree nodes from one tree view to another.

React TreeView component dragging and dropping to external container

External container

Drop tree nodes to any external container or component by extending the tree view node drop action.

Multiple node selection

Allows users to select multiple nodes. When the drag-and-drop feature is enabled, all the selected nodes can be dragged at the same time.

React TreeView editable nodes

Editable nodes

Edit the tree nodes’ label text on the client side by double-clicking it. When editing tree view nodes, the tree view data source will also be updated with the modified data.

Sorting tree nodes

Render the tree view nodes in the ascending or descending order based on the label text for improved readability.

React TreeView node template

Node template

The TreeView component can be customized through its node template support, which allows defining a custom structure for tree nodes. You can use node templates specifically for parent nodes, child nodes, or both, and include images and any custom element structure.

Expand collapse icons

Easily customize the expand and collapse icons based on the requirement of your application.

React TreeView tooltip

Tooltips for tree nodes

It supports tooltips for tree nodes that display information about the nodes while hovering over them. You can bind a tooltip from a data source along with node fields.

Context menu

A context menu can be integrated with the TreeView component to open when a node is right-clicked. The menu helps users perform node manipulations such as adding, removing, and renaming nodes.

React TreeView context menu

React TreeView text wrap

Text wrap

A node’s text wraps when it reaches edge of the TreeView. The node’s height will be adjusted automatically based on the content.

Right to left (RTL)

Supports right-to-left (RTL) direction for users working with right-to-left languages like Hebrew, Arabic, or Persian.

React TreeView TreeNode customization

Tree Node Customization

It allows you to customize the tree nodes by level. For example, apply specific styles to leaf nodes, first child nodes, and second level nodes, etc.

Tree Node Validation

You can add validation to the tree node’s text on editing like required, a minimum or maximum length, etc.

Built-in and customizable themes

Several built-in SASS-based themes are available such as Tailwind CSS, Bootstrap 5, Bootstrap 4, Bootstrap, Material, Fabric, and High Contrast. Simplify theme customization either by overriding the existing SASS styling or creating custom themes by using the Theme Studio application.

Web accessibility

  • Fully supports WAI-ARIA accessibility guidelines for working with screen readers and assistive devices.
  • Follows WAI-ARIA best practices for implementing keyboard interaction.
  • Designs the UI element visuals such as foreground color, background color, line spacing, text, and images based on WCAG 2.0 standard.

Developer-friendly APIs

The React TreeView component has a rich set of developer-friendly APIs to control all UI elements and behaviors, allowing you to provide the best experience to your end users.
