Core props
NameType (default)Description
model-valueArray[String | Number] ([])An array of value from options prop. This value will be selected on load of the treeselect. The value changes if you check/uncheck checkboxes or remove tags from the input.
optionsArray[Object] ([])It is an array of objects {name: String, value: String, disabled?: Boolean, htmlAttr?: object, children: [] }, where children are the same array of objects. Do not use duplicated value field. But you can use duplicated names. Read more.

ariaLabelString ('')aria-label attribute for the accessibility.
isSingleSelectBoolean (false)Converts multi-select to the single value select. Checkboxes will be removed. You should pass only one id instead of array of values. Also you can set showTags to false. It helps to show treeselect as a dropdown.
isGroupedValueBoolean (false)Return groups if they selected instead of separate ids. Treeselect returns only leaves ids by default.

openLevelNumber (0)All groups will be opened to this level.
appendToBodyBoolean (false)List will be appended to the body instead of the input container.
alwaysOpenBoolean (false)List will be always opened. You can use it for comfortable style changing. If you what to use it as an opened list, turn staticList to true.

listClassNameString ('')A class name for list. Useful to change styles for appendToBody mode.
Input settings props

showTagsBoolean (true)Selected values look like tags. The false value shows results as '{count} elements selected'. You can change text if you use tagsCountText prop. For one selected element, you will see a name of this element.
tagsCountTextString ('elements selected')This text will be shown if you use 'showTags'. This text will be inserted after the count of the selected elements - '{count} {tagsCountText}'.

Additional props

Object: iconElements: { arrowUp, arrowDown, arrowRight, attention, clear, cross, check, partialCheck }. After reset of icon you have to update styles if it is necessary, use alwaysOpen prop for more comfortable work with styles changes.

Option description

Is is description of the one option of the options prop:

valueString | Number (required!)It is a value of the node. It should be unique!
nameString (required!)It is the name of the node. Can be duplicated.
disabledBoolean (optional)The node will be disabled. It is an optional field, you can skip it if no need to work with disabled values.
htmlAttrObject (optional)The object of the HTML attributes, the value of the object should be a String type. These attributes will be merged into the node HTML tag.
children{name: String, value: String, disabled?: Boolean, htmlAttr?: object, children: [] }[]Children are the same array of objects.


  1. If you want to change the padding of the element you can use CSS selector. I've added 'group' and 'level' attributes, but you have to use !important.
  2. Do not use duplicated values for the options. You will see a error with duplicated values. But you can use duplicated names.
  3. Value prop inside the options prop should be a String or Number.
  4. If you use isSingleSelect prop, you should pass only a single value without an array.
  5. If you use isSingleSelect prop, you can set showTags to false. It helps to show treeselect as a dropdown. Also you can disable selecting of group's nodes with help of disabledBranchNode.
