Tree     

Quasar Tree represents a highly configurable component that displays hierarchical data, such as a table of contents in a tree structure.

Installation

Edit /quasar.conf.js:

framework: {
components: ['QTree']
}

Basic Usage

This is the simplest Tree that you can write:

<template>
<q-tree
:nodes="simple"
node-key="label"
/>
</template>

<script>
export default {
data: () => ({
simple: [
{
label: 'Satisfied customers',
children: [
{
label: 'Good food',
children: [
{ label: 'Quality ingredients' },
{ label: 'Good recipe' }
]
},
{
label: 'Good service (disabled node)',
disabled: true,
children: [
{ label: 'Prompt attention' },
{ label: 'Professional waiter' }
]
},
{
label: 'Pleasant surroundings',
children: [
{ label: 'Happy atmosphere' },
{ label: 'Good table presentation' },
{ label: 'Pleasing decor' }
]
}
]
}
]
})
}
</script>

Notice that nodes must have a unique key defined by a property of each key. In the example above, labels are unique so we’re using label prop to define these keys. However, you can add any property to the nodes (like ‘id’ or anything you want) and then use that property (like node-key="id").

Vue Properties

Vue PropertyTypeDescription
nodesArrayVue model for the Tree
node-keyStringProperty of node to use as unique key.
colorStringColor of the connector lines.
control-colorStringColor of checkboxes.
text-colorStringColor of text.
darkBooleanWhen rendering on a dark background.
iconStringConnector icon for each node.
selectedAnyUse .sync. The unique key value of the selected node.
tick-strategyStringOne of ‘leaf’, ‘leaf-filtered’, ‘strict’, ‘none’.
tickedArrayUse .sync. Node unique keys of ticked nodes.
expandedArrayUse .sync. Node unique keys of expanded nodes.
default-expand-allBooleanExpan all nodes on first render.
accordionBooleanExpanding a node closes its siblings.
filterStringString to be used when filtering nodes.
filter-methodFunctionCustom filtering method.
no-nodes-labelStringOverride default i18n of message when no nodes are available.
no-results-labelStringOverride default i18n of message when no nodes are available after filtering.

Nodes model structure

The following describes a node’s properties that are taken into account by QTree’s v-model.

Node PropertyTypeDescription
labelStringNode’s label
iconStringNode’s icon
iconColorString(v0.17.9+) Node’s icon color. One from Quasar Color Palette.
imgStringNode’s image. Use statics folder. Example: ‘statics/mountains.png’
avatarStringNode’s avatar. Use statics folder. Example: ‘statics/boy-avatar.png’
childrenArrayArray of nodes as children.
disabledBooleanIs node disabled?
expandableBooleanIs node expandable?
tickableBooleanWhen using a tick strategy, each node shows a checkbox. Should a node’s checkbox be disabled?
noTickBooleanWhen using a tick strategy, should node display a checkbox?
tickStrategyStringOverride global tick strategy for this node only. One of ‘leaf’, ‘leaf-filtered’, ‘strict’, ‘none’.
lazyBooleanShould children be lazy loaded? In this case also don’t specify ‘children’ prop.
headerStringNode header scoped slot name, without the required ‘header-‘ prefix. Example: ‘story’ refers to ‘header-story’ scoped slot.
bodyStringNode body scoped slot name, without the required ‘body-‘ prefix. Example: ‘story’ refers to ‘body-story’ scoped slot.

Selection vs Ticking, Expansion

All properties above require the .sync modifier in order for them to work correctly. Example:

<!-- DO NOT forget about adding ".sync" -->
<q-tree selected.sync="selection" ...

Tick Strategy

There are three ticking strategy: ‘leaf’, ‘leaf-filtered’, ‘strict’ with an additional (and default) ‘none’ which disables ticking.

StrategyDescription
leafTicked nodes are only the leaves. Ticking a node influences the parent’s ticked state too (parent becomes partially ticked or ticked), as well as its children (all tickable children become ticked).
leaf-filteredSame concept as leaf, only that this strategy applies only to filtered nodes (the nodes that remain visible after filtering).
strictTicked nodes are independent of parent or children tick state.

You can apply a global tick strategy for a QTree and locally change the ticking strategy for a certain node by specifying the tickStrategy in the nodes model.

Custom Filter Method

You can customize the filtering method by specifying the filter-method prop. The method below is actually the default filtering strategy:

<template>
<q-tree :filter-method="myFilterMethod" ...>
</template>

<script>
export default {
methods: {
myFilterMethod (node, filter) {
const filt = filter.toLowerCase()
return node.label && node.label.toLowerCase().indexOf(filt) > -1
}
}
}
</script>

Examples

Node icon/avatar/image, controlling expansion and colored

<template>
<div>
<q-btn
color="secondary"
@click="togglePropsGoodServiceExpand"
label="Toggle 'Good service' expansion"
/>
<q-tree
:nodes="props"
:expanded.sync="propsExpanded"
color="red"
node-key="label"
/>
</div>
</template>

<script>
export default {
data: () => ({
propsExpanded: ['Satisfied customers', 'Pleasant surroundings'],
props: [
{
label: 'Satisfied customers',
avatar: 'statics/boy-avatar.png',
children: [
{
label: 'Good food',
icon: 'restaurant_menu',
children: [
{ label: 'Quality ingredients' },
{ label: 'Good recipe' }
]
},
{
label: 'Good service',
icon: 'room_service',
children: [
{ label: 'Prompt attention' },
{ label: 'Professional waiter' }
]
},
{
label: 'Pleasant surroundings',
icon: 'photo',
children: [
{
label: 'Happy atmosphere',
img: 'statics/parallax1.jpg'
},
{
label: 'Good table presentation',
img: 'statics/parallax2.jpg'
},
{
label: 'Pleasing decor',
img: 'statics/mountains.jpg'
}
]
}
]
}
]
}),
methods: {
togglePropsGoodServiceExpand () {
const index = this.propsExpanded.indexOf('Good service')
if (index > -1) {
this.propsExpanded.splice(index, 1)
}
else {
this.propsExpanded.push('Good service')
}
}
}
}
</script>

Customizing nodes (header and body slots)

<template>
<q-tree
:nodes="customize"
node-key="label"
default-expand-all
>
<div slot="header-root" slot-scope="prop" class="row items-center">
<img src="~assets/quasar-logo.svg" class="avatar q-mr-sm">
<div>
{{ prop.node.label }} <q-chip color="orange" small>New!</q-chip>
</div>
</div>

<div slot="header-generic" slot-scope="prop" class="row items-center">
<q-icon :name="prop.node.icon || 'star'" color="orange" size="28px" class="q-mr-sm" />
<div class="text-weight-bold text-primary">{{ prop.node.label }}</div>
</div>

<div slot="body-story" slot-scope="prop">
<span class="text-weight-thin">The story is:</span> {{ prop.node.story }}
</div>

<div slot="body-toggle" slot-scope="prop">
<p class="caption">{{ prop.node.caption }}</p>
<q-toggle v-model="prop.node.enabled" label="I agree to the terms and conditions" />
</div>
</q-tree>
</template>

<script>
export default {
