node_modules/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css


Integrating into Angular Application

import AngularTreeTableModule in app.module.ts.

Configuration in Component

Declare the below variables for table initialization

tableData: TreeTableData = null; //Table Data Holder
tableConfig = new TreeTableDataConfig(); //Table Configuration
tableHeaders: TreeTableHeaderObject[] = []; //Table Headers and Property Binding

Declare the below methods to populate dummy data into the table

populateDummyData() {
    const data = [];
    for (let i = 0; i < 120; i++) {
      const row = new TreeTableRow(i + '', { sno: i+1, name: 'John '+(i+1), age: i+1. address: {dno: '1-23'}}, false, null);
      data.push(row);
    }
    this.tableData = new TreeTableData(this.tableConfig);
    this.populateHeaders();
    this.tableData.data = data;
  }
  populateHeaders() {
    this.tableHeaders.splice(0, this.tableHeaders.length);
    this.tableHeaders.push(new TreeTableHeaderObject('Sno', 'sno', null, true));
    this.tableHeaders.push(new TreeTableHeaderObject('Name', 'name', null, true));
    this.tableHeaders.push(new TreeTableHeaderObject('Age', 'age', null, true));
    this.tableHeaders.push(new TreeTableHeaderObject('User Details', '=CONCAT(Name: |||name|||<br/>|||Age: |||age)', null, true));
    this.tableHeaders.push(new TreeTableHeaderObject('D.no', 'address.dno', null, true));
    this.tableData.headers = this.tableHeaders;
  }

Adding View Element in Component View

Add the below tag in Component HTML View

<angular-tree-table [tableData]=”tableData”></angular-tree-table>

With this, you will get the view of basic Table with given data

Expandable Table View

To configure the row as an expandable, we need to configure the table as below

tableConfig = {
  showExpandArrows: true, // Showing Arrows each possible row
  showExpandAllArrows: true // Expand all button
};

Update the populateDummyData method as below to add Children to row

**populateDummyData**() {
    const data = [];
    for (let i = 0; i < 120; i++) {
      const row = new TreeTableRow(i + '', { sno: i+1, name: 'John '+(i+1), age: i+1}, false, null);
      if (i % 10 !== 0) {
        row.expandable = true;
        const subTableData = new TreeTableData(this.tableConfig); //We can add new config object if required
        const subData = [];
        for (let j = 0; j < (10 - i % 10); j++) {
          const subRow = new TreeTableRow(j + '', { sno: j + 1, name: 'Paul ' + (j + 1), age: j + 1}, false, null);
          subData.push(subRow);
        }
        subTableData.headers = this.tableHeaders; //Using the same headers as parent table, we can use separate if required
        subTableData.data = subData;
        row.children = subTableData;
      }
      data.push(row);
    }
    this.tableData = new TreeTableData(this.tableConfig);
    this.populateHeaders();
    this.tableData.data = data;
  }

      level: 0,
      columnFilters: {},
      rowClickablesContext: null,
      rowClickables: {},
      commonSearch: true,
      excelExportButton: false,
      excelExportFileName: 'ExportFile',
      excelExportButtonText: 'Excel Export',
      excelExportAllChildren: true,
      excelExportOnlyExpanded: false,
      events: {
          shouldRowExpand: null,
