What does the component do?

  • Displays hierarchically structured data in a tree structure.

When should the component be used?

  • To display and select elements in a hierarchical structure.


  • When using a tree as a navigation component, it makes sense not to use too many hierarchy levels (recommendation max. 3).
  • When using an tree to display data structures (e.g. a dossier, analogous to a file browser), it depends on the application how many hierarchy levels are needed.
  • The icon as a supplement to the text is optional.
