        }
    },
    shouldLoadNodes: function(parentNode) {
        if (!parentNode.hasChildren() && parentNode.loadOnDemand) {
            return true;
        }

    },
    shouldSelectNode: function(node) { // Determine if the node is selectable
        if (!node || (node === tree.getSelectedNode())) {

        }
        return true;
    }
});

Creating tree nodes with checkboxes

Sets the checked attribute in your rowRenderer:

const tag = require('html5-tag');

const checkbox = tag('input', {
    type: 'checkbox',
    checked: node.state.checked,
    'class': 'checkbox',
    'data-indeterminate': node.state.indeterminate
});

In your tree, add 'click', 'contentDidUpdate', 'clusterDidChange' event listeners as below:

// `indeterminate` doesn't have a DOM attribute equivalent, so you need to update DOM on the fly.
const updateIndeterminateState = (tree) => {
    const checkboxes = tree.contentElement.querySelectorAll('input[type="checkbox"]');
    for (let i = 0; i < checkboxes.length; ++i) {
        const checkbox = checkboxes[i];
        if (checkbox.hasAttribute('data-indeterminate')) {
            checkbox.indeterminate = true;
        } else {
            checkbox.indeterminate = false;
        }
    }
};

tree.on('click', function(node) {
    const currentNode = tree.getNodeFromPoint(event.clientX, event.clientY);
    if (!currentNode) {
        return;
    }

    if (event.target.className === 'checkbox') {
        event.stopPropagation();
        tree.checkNode(currentNode);
        return;
    }
});

tree.on('contentDidUpdate', () => {
    updateIndeterminateState(tree);
});

tree.on('clusterDidChange', () => {
    updateIndeterminateState(tree);
});

How to attach click event listeners to nodes?

Use event delegation [1, 2]

const el = document.querySelector('#tree');
const tree = new InfiniteTree(el, { /* options */ });

tree.on('click', function(event) {
    const target = event.target || event.srcElement; // IE8
    let nodeTarget = target;

    while (nodeTarget && nodeTarget.parentElement !== tree.contentElement) {
        nodeTarget = nodeTarget.parentElement;
    }

    // Call event.stopPropagation() if you want to prevent the execution of
    // default tree operations like selectNode, openNode, and closeNode.
    event.stopPropagation(); // [optional]
    
    // Matches the specified group of selectors.
    const selectors = '.dropdown .btn';
    if (nodeTarget.querySelector(selectors) !== target) {
        return;
    }

    // do stuff with the target element.
    console.log(target);
};

Event delegation with jQuery:

const el = document.querySelector('#tree');
const tree = new InfiniteTree(el, { /* options */ });

// jQuery
$(tree.contentElement).on('click', '.dropdown .btn', function(event) {
    // Call event.stopPropagation() if you want to prevent the execution of
    // default tree operations like selectNode, openNode, and closeNode.
    event.stopPropagation();
    
    // do stuff with the target element.
    console.log(event.target);
});

How to use keyboard shortcuts to navigate through nodes?

tree.on('keyDown', (event) => {
    // Prevent the default scroll
    event.preventDefault();

    const node = tree.getSelectedNode();
    const nodeIndex = tree.getSelectedIndex();

    if (event.keyCode === 37) { // Left
        tree.closeNode(node);
    } else if (event.keyCode === 38) { // Up
        if (tree.filtered) { // filtered mode
            let prevNode = node;
            for (let i = nodeIndex - 1; i >= 0; --i) {
                if (tree.nodes[i].state.filtered) {
                    prevNode = tree.nodes[i];
                    break;
                }
            }
            tree.selectNode(prevNode);
        } else {
            const prevNode = tree.nodes[nodeIndex - 1] || node;
            tree.selectNode(prevNode);
        }
    } else if (event.keyCode === 39) { // Right
        tree.openNode(node);
    } else if (event.keyCode === 40) { // Down
        if (tree.filtered) { // filtered mode
            let nextNode = node;
            for (let i = nodeIndex + 1; i < tree.nodes.length; ++i) {
                if (tree.nodes[i].state.filtered) {
                    nextNode = tree.nodes[i];
                    break;
                }
            }
            tree.selectNode(nextNode);
        } else {
            const nextNode = tree.nodes[nodeIndex + 1] || node;
            tree.selectNode(nextNode);
        }
    }
});

How to filter nodes?

In your row renderer, returns undefined or an empty string to filter out unwanted nodes (i.e. node.state.filtered === false):

import tag from 'html5-tag';

const renderer = (node, treeOptions) => {
    if (node.state.filtered === false) {
        return;
    }

    // Do something

    return tag('div', treeNodeAttributes, treeNode);
};
Usage
tree.filter(predicate, options)

Use a string or a function to test each node of the tree. Otherwise, it will render nothing after filtering (e.g. tree.filter(), tree.filter(null), tree.flter(0), tree.filter({}), etc.). If the predicate is an empty string, all nodes will be filtered. If the predicate is a function, returns true to keep the node, false otherwise.

Filter by string
const keyword = 'text-to-filter';
const filterOptions = {
    caseSensitive: false,
    exactMatch: false,
    filterPath: 'props.name', // Defaults to 'name'
    includeAncestors: true,
    includeDescendants: true
};
tree.filter(keyword, filterOptions);
Filter by function
const keyword = 'text-to-filter';
const filterOptions = {
    includeAncestors: true,
    includeDescendants: true
};
tree.filter(function(node) {
    const name = node.name || '';
    return name.toLowerCase().indexOf(keyword) >= 0;
});
Turn off filter

Calls tree.unfilter() to turn off filter.

tree.unfilter();

How to select multiple nodes using the ctrl key (or meta key)?

You need to maintain an array of selected nodes by yourself. See below for details:

let selectedNodes = [];
tree.on('click', (event) => {
    // Return the node at the specified point
    const currentNode = tree.getNodeFromPoint(event.clientX, event.clientY);
    if (!currentNode) {
        return;
    }

    const multipleSelectionMode = event.ctrlKey || event.metaKey;

    if (!multipleSelectionMode) {
        if (selectedNodes.length > 0) {
            // Call event.stopPropagation() to stop event bubbling
            event.stopPropagation();

            // Empty an array of selected nodes
            selectedNodes.forEach(selectedNode => {
                selectedNode.state.selected = false;
                tree.updateNode(selectedNode, {}, { shallowRendering: true });
            });
            selectedNodes = [];

            // Select current node
            tree.state.selectedNode = currentNode;
            currentNode.state.selected = true;
            tree.updateNode(currentNode, {}, { shallowRendering: true });
        }
        return;
    }

    // Call event.stopPropagation() to stop event bubbling
    event.stopPropagation();

    const selectedNode = tree.getSelectedNode();
    if (selectedNodes.length === 0 && selectedNode) {
        selectedNodes.push(selectedNode);
        tree.state.selectedNode = null;
    }

    const index = selectedNodes.indexOf(currentNode);

    // Remove current node if the array length of selected nodes is greater than 1
    if (index >= 0 && selectedNodes.length > 1) {
        currentNode.state.selected = false;
        selectedNodes.splice(index, 1);
        tree.updateNode(currentNode, {}, { shallowRendering: true });
    }

    // Add current node to the selected nodes
    if (index < 0) {
        currentNode.state.selected = true;
        selectedNodes.push(currentNode);
        tree.updateNode(currentNode, {}, { shallowRendering: true });
    }
});
