New TreeList Widget - HTML 5 Client-Side JavaScript - DevExtreme (v17.1)

In the v17.1 DevExtreme release, we're introducing a new HTML 5 client-side TreeList widget!

The TreeList is a widget that displays data from a local or remote source in the form of a multi-column tree view. Basically, the TreeList has almost all the features and functionality of the excellent DevExtreme DataGrid but in a tree-style (i.e. hierarchical) layout:

We also offer the TreeView widget, which is great for navigation purposes, but a TreeList is richer and provides more powerful features like data editing.


The TreeList is packed with the following features:

  • Powerful databinding – the TreeList supports binding to data sources containing hierarchical or plain data.
  • Virtual mode and virtual scrolling – the TreeList can show large amount of data with good performance
  • Data Editing and Input Validation
  • Data Filtering and Search
  • Data Sorting
  • Single and Multiple Row Selection
  • Fixed and Band columns
  • Column Chooser
  • Column Resizing and Reordering
  • Keyboard Navigation, Right-To-Left and WAI-ARIA support
  • Adaptability
  • And more...
