How do I apply the following CSS to only the Parent nodes of a Kendo Tree View?

Tags: css,kendo-treeview

Problem :

I have this CSS class:

    display: inline;
    font-size: 10pt;
    text-decoration: none;
    /*cursor: hand;*/
    overflow: hidden;
    overflow-x: hidden;
    overflow-y: hidden;
    filter: none;
    font-weight: bold;
    color: green;
    background-color: transparent;

And I want to use it on the parent nodes of this Kendo Tree View:

<div id="relationshipsTree"></div>

How do I go about doing this?


This is the .js file I'm using to create the tree. I added:


Based on an answer here, however, it is still not working.

Whole file:

function CreateRelationshipsTree()
    var primaryContactId = 671;
    var personOrCompany = 'C';
    var rootMemberId = 0;

    var data = new{
        transport: {
            read: {
                url: "../api/relationships?primaryContactId=" + primaryContactId + "&personOrCompany=" + personOrCompany + "&rootMemberId=" + rootMemberId,
                contentType: "application/json"
        schema: {
            model: {
                hasChildren: "hasChildren",
                children: "Items"

        dataSource: data,
        loadOnDemand: true,
        dataUrlField: "LinksTo",
        dataTextField: ["Name", "Name"],
        select: treeviewSelect

    function treeviewSelect(e) {
        var node = this.dataItem(e.node);, "_self");


function RefreshProjectTree() {
    var treeView = $("#relationshipsTree").data("kendoTreeView");;

Solution :


I found that I have misunderstood your question. I think you want to select the DOM parent element while you want to select the parent node in the tree view. This is my updated answer.

Midify your handler a bit:

function treeviewSelect(e) {
  $('#relationshipsTree div').removeClass('relationshipsTree');
  var node = this.dataItem(e.node);, "_self");
