Step 3. Add the below code in the App.tsx

import React from 'react';
import logo from './logo.svg';
import './App.css';
import { Tree } from 'antd';
import type { DataNode, TreeProps } from 'antd/es/tree';

const treeData: DataNode[] = [
    title: 'parent 1',
    key: '0-0',
    children: [
        title: 'parent 1-0',
        key: '0-0-0',
        disabled: true,
        children: [
            title: 'leaf',
            key: '0-0-0-0',
            disableCheckbox: true,
            title: 'leaf',
            key: '0-0-0-1',
        title: 'parent 1-1',
        key: '0-0-1',
        children: [{ title: <span style={{ color: '#1677ff' }}>sss</span>, key: '0-0-1-0' }],

function App() {

  const onSelect: TreeProps['onSelect'] = (selectedKeys, info) => {
    console.log('selected', selectedKeys, info);

  const onCheck: TreeProps['onCheck'] = (checkedKeys, info) => {
    console.log('onCheck', checkedKeys, info);

  return (
    defaultExpandedKeys={['0-0-0', '0-0-1']}
    defaultSelectedKeys={['0-0-0', '0-0-1']}
    defaultCheckedKeys={['0-0-0', '0-0-1']}

export default App;

Step 4. Add the below code in package.json

  "name": "treeappant",
  "version": "0.1.0",
  "private": true,
  "dependencies": {
    "@ant-design/icons": "^5.1.4",
    "@testing-library/jest-dom": "^5.16.5",
    "@testing-library/react": "^13.4.0",
