TreeGrid, TreeGridRow, and TreeGridCell are components used to create a tree hierarchy. They’re not visually styled components, but instead help with adding keyboard navigation and roving tab index behaviors to tree grid structures.

A tree grid is a hierarchical 2 dimensional UI component, for example it could be used to implement a file system browser.

A tree grid allows the user to navigate using arrow keys. Up/down to navigate vertically across rows, and left/right to navigate horizontally between focusables in a row.

For more information on a tree grid, see the following links:

Usage Usage

The TreeGrid renders both a table and tbody element, and is intended to be used with TreeGridRow (tr) and TreeGridCell (td) to build out a grid.

function TreeMenu() {
    return (
        <TreeGrid>
            <TreeGridRow level={ 1 } positionInSet={ 1 } setSize={ 2 }>
                <TreeGridCell>
                    { ( props ) => <Button onClick={ onSelect } { ...props }>Select</Button> }
                </TreeGridCell>
                <TreeGridCell>
                    { ( props ) => <Button onClick={ onMoveUp } { ...props }>Move Up</Button> }
                </TreeGridCell>
                <TreeGridCell>
                    { ( props ) => <Button onClick={ onMoveDown } { ...props }>Move Down</Button> }
                </TreeGridCell>
            </TreeGridRow>
            <TreeGridRow level={ 1 } positionInSet={ 2 } setSize={ 2 }>
                <TreeGridCell>
                    { ( props ) => <Button onClick={ onSelect } { ...props }>Select</Button> }
                </TreeGridCell>
                <TreeGridCell>
                    { ( props ) => <Button onClick={ onMoveUp } { ...props }>Move Up</Button> }
                </TreeGridCell>
                <TreeGridCell>
                    { ( props ) => <Button onClick={ onMoveDown } { ...props }>Move Down</Button> }
                </TreeGridCell>
            </TreeGridRow>
            <TreeGridRow level={ 2 } positionInSet={ 1 } setSize={ 1 }>
                <TreeGridCell>
                    { ( props ) => <Button onClick={ onSelect } { ...props }>Select</Button> }
                </TreeGridCell>
                <TreeGridCell>
                    { ( props ) => <Button onClick={ onMoveUp } { ...props }>Move Up</Button> }
                </TreeGridCell>
                <TreeGridCell>
                    { ( props ) => <Button onClick={ onMoveDown } { ...props }>Move Down</Button> }
                </TreeGridCell>
            </TreeGridRow>
        </TreeGrid>
    );
}

TreeGrid TreeGrid

Props

TreeGrid accepts no specific props. Any props specified will be passed to the table element rendered by TreeGrid.

TreeGrid should always have children.

TreeGridRow TreeGridRow

Props

Additional props other than those specified below will be passed to the tr element rendered by TreeGridRow, so for example, it is possible to also set a className on a row.

level

An integer value designating the level in the hierarchical tree structure. Counting starts at 1. A value of 1 indicates the root level of the structure.

  • Type: Number
  • Required: Yes
positionInSet

An integer value that represents the position in the set. A set is the count of elements at a specific level. Counting starts at 1.

  • Type: Number
  • Required: Yes
setSize

An integer value that represents the total number of items in the set … that is the total number of items at this specific level of the hierarchy.

  • Type: Number
  • Required: Yes
isExpanded

An optional value that designates whether a row is expanded or collapsed. Currently this value only sets the correct aria-expanded property on a row, it has no other built-in behavior.

  • Type: Boolean
  • Required: No

TreeGridCell TreeGridCell

Props Props

TreeGridCell accepts no specific props. Any props specified will be passed to the td element rendered by TreeGridCell.

children as a function children as a function

TreeGridCell renders children using a function:

<TreeGridCell>
    { ( props ) => <Button onClick={ onMoveDown } { ...props }>Move Down</Button> }
</TreeGridCell>

Props passed as an argument to the render prop must be passed to the child focusable component/element within the cell. If a component is used, it must correctly handle the onFocus, tabIndex, and ref props, passing these to the element it renders. These props are used to handle the roving tab index functionality of the tree grid.
