Setup Angular Environment

You can use Angular CLI to setup your Angular applications. To install Angular CLI use the following command.

npm install -g @angular/cli

Create an Angular Application

Start a new Angular application using below Angular CLI command.

ng new my-app
cd my-app

Adding Syncfusion Spreadsheet package

All the available Essential JS 2 packages are published in registry.

To install Spreadsheet control, use the following command.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-spreadsheet --save

The —save will instruct NPM to include the spreadsheet package inside of the dependencies section of the package.json.

Registering Spreadsheet Module

Import Spreadsheet module into Angular application(app.module.ts) from the package @syncfusion/ej2-angular-spreadsheet [src/app/app.module.ts].

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { SpreadsheetAllModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-spreadsheet';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

  imports:      [ BrowserModule, SpreadsheetAllModule ],
  declarations: [ AppComponent ],
  bootstrap:    [ AppComponent ]
export class AppModule { }

Adding CSS reference

The following CSS files are available in ../node_modules/@syncfusion package folder. This can be referenced in [src/styles.css] using following code.

@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-inputs/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-lists/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-navigations/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-popups/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-spreadsheet/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-grids/styles/material.css';

Add Spreadsheet control

Modify the template in [src/app/app.component.ts] file to render the spreadsheet component. Add the Angular Spreadsheet by using <ejs-spreadsheet> selector in template section of the app.component.ts file.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

  selector: 'app-root',
  // specifies the template string for the Spreadsheet control
  template: `<ejs-spreadsheet> </ejs-spreadsheet>`
export class AppComponent { }

Run the application

Use the following command to run the application in the web browser

ng serve

The following example shows a basic Spreadsheet component

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

    selector: 'app-root',
    template: '<ejs-spreadsheet > </ejs-spreadsheet>'
export class AppComponent { }
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { SpreadsheetAllModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-spreadsheet';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

 * Module
    imports: [
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';
