jQWidgets jqxTreeGrid columnGroups Property

  • Last Updated : 20 Oct, 2021

jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxTreeGrid is used for representing data in a tree-like structure. This widget is useful for displaying multi-column of hierarchical data, data paging, sorting and filtering, data editing, column resizing, fixed columns, conditional formatting, aggregates, and rows selection. These widgets also read and display the data from any type of data sources such as XML, JSON, Array, CSV, or TSV.

The columnGroups property is used for setting the column group for the specified jqxTreeGrid. A column group is a group of multi column headers. 

There is a list of properties that can be set inside the columnGroups property:

  • parentGroup: This is a string property that determines the name of the parent group.
  • name: This is a string property that determines the name of the group.
  • align: This is a string property that determines the alignment of the column header. It’s possible values are ‘left’, ‘center’, or ‘right’.

Syntax:

columnGroups: [{
    name: "Group",
    align: "center",
    text: "Organisation"
}]
