I got huge response from my previous article Dynamic Tree with JSTree, PHP and MySQL,Most of readers asking about how to add, edit and delete node functionality using JsTree,PHP and mysql.I will explain here how to add/edit dynamically nodes using jstree,php using AJAX.

In This Jstree PHP treemenu tutorial, I am create multi level tree menu and adding add,edit and delete node using jstree context menu.

jstree context menu is a jstree plugin which is used to show context menu on node, I will provide add,edit and delete node option using jstree context menu on each node, based on selected option i ll perform add,edit and delete node using PHP as well as update MySQL tree data.

So we are using below files to create dynamic treeview using jstree jquery tree plugin, php and mysql. Its very easy and simple,The project structure are follows:

  1. dist folder : This folder will contains all js/css and images files.
  2. index.php : This file is use to display tree
  3. response.php : This file is use to fetch tree nodes from database and convert them into json object.

Step 1: Created tree menu container in index.php.

Step 2: Call jstree method on div container and added context menu plugin.

above code will create context menu on right click of tree menu node.

Step 3: Now I will add context menu option and callback method for add, edit and delete jstree nodes.

We have created context menu and added callback option for each operation like add node,rename node and delete node, Also i have added ajax request for each operation.We have created AJAX PHP request for each operation and save each modification into database using server-side response.php file.

Step 4: Now i will add server side code for update nodes information into mysql database.

I am adding response header json type to send result in json format to jstree. I am getting 'operation' parameters that notify which operation will perform on server side based on selected option on context menu.I am processing data and storing into database and finally send json response.


I have added simple version of jstree with PHP,mysql and Ajax.I have added add,edit and delete node using php,mysql and jQuery AJAX.I leave copy and paste option node for you.
