How can I hide the checkboxes for the root level items in the Kendo UI for jQuery TreeView?

Solution

The following example demonstrates how to achieve this behavior by using the checkboxes.template configuration option.

    <div id="treeview"></div>

    <script>
      $("#treeview").kendoTreeView({
        checkboxes: {
          checkChildren: true,
          template:
            "# if (item.level() > 0) { #" +
                "<input type='checkbox' #= item.checked ? 'checked' : '' #>" +
            "# } #"
        },

        dataSource: [
          { id: 1, text: "My Documents", expanded: true, spriteCssClass: "rootfolder", items: [
            { id: 2, text: "Kendo UI Project", expanded: true, spriteCssClass: "folder", items: [
              { id: 3, text: "about.html", spriteCssClass: "html" },
              { id: 4, text: "index.html", spriteCssClass: "html" },
              { id: 5, text: "logo.png", spriteCssClass: "image" }
            ]
            },
            { id: 6, text: "New Website", expanded: true, spriteCssClass: "folder", items: [
              { id: 7, text: "mockup.jpg", spriteCssClass: "image" },
              { id: 8, text: "Research.pdf", spriteCssClass: "pdf" },
            ] }
          ] },
          { id: 9, text: "Reports", expanded: true, spriteCssClass: "folder", items: [
              { id: 10, text: "February.pdf", spriteCssClass: "pdf" },
              { id: 11, text: "March.pdf", spriteCssClass: "pdf" },
              { id: 12, text: "April.pdf", spriteCssClass: "pdf" }
            ] }
          ]
      });

    </script>
