Using AJAX this tree menu can load its content on demand without page reloading, that’s why the component works great with large dataset. Another popular way to manage big trees, implemented into dhtmlxTree starting from v.1.1, is Smart XML parsing, which got some enhancements in v.1.2.
dhtmlxTree 1.2 also introduces some improvements in its checkbox system. Now there is an ability to hide or disable checkboxes for certain nodes or set a predefined value for some checkboxes if needed. Earlier introduced three-state checkboxes became Smart XML Parsing compatible and now the third “partly-checked” state can be set with XML.
This new release of the tree control provides enhanced support of various server-side technologies that facilitates easy integration with different web applications. dhtmlxTree 1.2 has Cold Fusion and JSP tags, as well as ASP.net custom control.
In addition, dhtmlxTree version 1.2 brings such new features as: nodes sorting and searching capabilities, changeable icon size, enriched client-side API, increased overall performance, more detailed documentation, new samples, etc. This latest release was tested with all existing standard document types, including XHTML.
