Angular UI Tree

Build Status

Angular UI Tree is an AngularJS UI component that can sort nested lists, provides drag & drop support and doesn't depend on jQuery. If you are a user who uses angular-nestedSortable, this is How to migrate From v1.x to v2.0.

Features

  • Uses the native AngularJS scope for data binding
  • Sorted and move items through the entire tree
  • Prevent elements from accepting child nodes

Supported browsers

The Angular UI Tree is tested with the following browsers:

  • Chrome (stable)
  • Firefox
  • IE 8, 9 and 10

For IE8 support, make sure you do the following:

Demo

Watch the Tree component in action on the demo page.

Requirements

  • Angularjs

Usage

Download

  • Using bower to install it. bower install angular-ui-tree
  • Download from github.

Load CSS

Load the css file: angular-ui-tree.min.css in your application:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="bower_components/angular-ui-tree/dist/angular-ui-tree.min.css">

Load Script

Load the script file: angular-ui-tree.js or angular-ui-tree.min.js in your application:

<script type="text/javascript" src="bower_components/angular-ui-tree/dist/angular-ui-tree.js"></script>

Code

Add the sortable module as a dependency to your application module:

var myAppModule = angular.module('MyApp', ['ui.tree'])

Injecting ui.tree, ui-tree-nodes, ui-tree-node, ui-tree-handle to your html.

HTML View or Templates

<div ui-tree>
  <ol ui-tree-nodes="" ng-model="list">
    <li ng-repeat="item in list" ui-tree-node>
      <div ui-tree-handle>
        {{item.title}}
      </div>
      <ol ui-tree-nodes="" ng-model="item.items">
        <li ng-repeat="subItem in item.items" ui-tree-node>
          <div ui-tree-handle>
            {{subItem.title}}
          </div>
        </li>
      </ol>
    </li>
  </ol>
</div>

Developing Notes:

  • Adding ui-tree to your root element of the tree.
  • Adding ui-tree-nodes to the elements which contain the nodes. ng-model is required, and it should be an array, so that the directive knows which model to bind and update.
  • Adding ui-tree-node to your node element, it always follows the ng-repeat attribute.
  • Adding ui-tree-handle to the element used to drag the object.
  • All ui-tree, ui-tree-nodes, ng-model, ui-tree-node are necessary. And they can be nested.
  • If you don't add a ui-tree-handle for a node, the entire node can be dragged.

Unlimited nesting HTML View or Templates Example

<!-- Nested node template -->
<script type="text/ng-template" id="nodes_renderer.html">
  <div ui-tree-handle>
    {{node.title}}
  </div>
  <ol ui-tree-nodes="" ng-model="node.nodes">
    <li ng-repeat="node in node.nodes" ui-tree-node ng-include="'nodes_renderer.html'">
    </li>
  </ol>
</script>
<div ui-tree>
  <ol ui-tree-nodes="" ng-model="data" id="tree-root">
    <li ng-repeat="node in data" ui-tree-node ng-include="'nodes_renderer.html'"></li>
  </ol>
</div>

API

ui-tree

ui-tree is the root scope for a tree

Attributes

data-drop-enabled

Turn on the ability to prevent dropping of nodes into this tree.

  • false (default): turn off
  • true: turn on no drop
data-clone-enabled

Turn on cloning of nodes. This will clone the source node to the destination when dragging between 2 trees.

  • false (default): turn off clone
  • true: turn on clone
data-drag-enabled

Turn on dragging and dropping of nodes.

  • true (default): allow drag and drop
  • false: turn off drag and drop
data-max-depth

Number of levels a nodes can be nested (default 0). 0 means no limit. Note If you write your own $callbacks.accept method, you have to check data-max-depth by yourself.

data-drag-delay

Number of milliseconds a click must be held to start a drag. (default 0)

data-empty-placeholder-enabled

If a tree is empty, there will be an empty placeholder which is used to drop node from other trees by default.

  • true (default): display an empty placeholder if the tree is empty
  • false: do not display an empty placeholder
Example
  • turn on/off drag and drop.
  • Limit depth to 5
  • 500 milliseconds delay
<div ui-tree data-drag-enabled="tree.enabled" data-max-depth="5" data-drag-delay="500">

</div>

Methods of scope

collapseAll()

Collapse all it's child nodes.

expandAll()

Expand all it's child nodes.

$callbacks (type: Object)

$callbacks is a very important property for angular-ui-tree. When some special events trigger, the functions in $callbacks are called. The callbacks can be passed through the directive. Example:

myAppModule.controller('MyController', function($scope) {
  $scope.treeOptions = {
    accept: function(sourceNodeScope, destNodesScope, destIndex) {
      return true;
    },
  };
});
<div ui-tree="treeOptions">
  <ol ui-tree-nodes ng-model="nodes">
    <li ng-repeat="node in nodes" ui-tree-node>{{node.title}}</li>
  </ol>
</div>

Methods in $callbacks

accept(sourceNodeScope, destNodesScope, destIndex)

Check if the current dragging node can be dropped in the ui-tree-nodes.

Parameters:

  • sourceNodeScope: The scope of source node which is dragging.
  • destNodesScope: The scope of ui-tree-nodes which you want to drop in.
  • destIndex: The position you want to drop in.

Return If the nodes accept the current dragging node.

  • true Allow it to drop.
  • false Not allow.
beforeDrag(sourceNodeScope)

Check if the current selected node can be dragged.

Parameters:

  • sourceNodeScope: The scope of source node which is selected.

Return If current node is draggable.

  • true Allow it to drag.
  • false Not allow.
dropped(event)

If a node moves it's position after dropped, the nodeDropped callback will be called.

Parameters:

  • event: Event arguments, it's an object.
    • source: Source object
      • nodeScope: The scope of source node which was dragged.
      • nodesScope: The scope of the parent nodes of source node when it began to drag.
      • index: The position when it began to drag.
    • dest: Destination object
      • nodesScope: The scope of ui-tree-nodes which you just dropped in.
      • index: The position you dropped in.
    • elements: The dragging relative elements.
      • placeholder: The placeholder element.
      • dragging: The dragging element.
    • pos: Position object.
dragStart(event)

The dragStart function is called when the user starts to drag the node. Parameters: Same as Parameters of dropped.

dragMove(event)

The dragMove function is called when the user moves the node.

Parameters: Same as Parameters of dropped.

dragStop(event)

The dragStop function is called when the user stop dragging the node.

Parameters: Same as Parameters of dropped.

beforeDrop(event)

The beforeDrop function is called before the dragging node is dropped.

Parameters: Same as Parameters of dropped.

ui-tree-nodes

ui-tree-nodes is the container of nodes. Every ui-tree-node should have a ui-tree-nodes as it's container, a ui-tree-nodes can have multiple child nodes.

Attributes

data-nodrop-enabled

Turn off drop of nodes.

data-max-depth

Number of levels a nodes can be nested (default 0). 0 means no limit. It can override the data-max-depth in ui-tree. Note If you write your own $callbacks.accept method, you have to check data-nodrop-enabled and data-max-depth by yourself.

Example: turn off drop.

<ol ui-tree-nodes ng-model="nodes" data-nodrop-enabled="true">
  <li ng-repeat="node in nodes" ui-tree-node>{{node.title}}</li>
</ol>

Properties of scope

$element (type: AngularElement)

The html element which bind with the ui-tree-nodes scope.

$modelValue (type: Object)

The data which bind with the scope.

$nodes (type: Array)

All it's child nodes. The type of child node is scope of ui-tree-node.

$nodeScope (type: Scope of ui-tree-node)

The scope of node which current ui-tree-nodes belongs to. For example:

ui-tree-nodes                       --> nodes 1
  ui-tree-node                      --> node 1.1
    ui-tree-nodes                   --> nodes 1.1
      ui-tree-node                  --> node 1.1.1

Useful commands

Running a Local Development Web Server

To debug code and run end-to-end tests, it is often useful to have a local HTTP server. For this purpose, we have made available a local web server based on Node.js.

To start the web server, run:

$ gulp serve

To access the local server, enter the following URL into your web browser:

http://localhost:9000

By default, it serves the contents of the examples directory.

Building angular-ui-tree

To build angular-ui-tree, you use the following command.

$ gulp build

This will generate non-minified and minified JavaScript files in the dist directory.

Run tests

You can run the unit test using a separate task.

$ gulp test

Deploy examples

$ gulp deploy
