Getting started in EJ2 TypeScript Card control

8 May 20234 minutes to read

This section explains how to create a simple Card using styles by configuring the structure for the header, content, using Essential JS 2 quickstart seed repository.


The Card is pure CSS component so no other package dependencies are needed to render the Card.

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-layouts

Installation and configuration

  • Clone the Essential JS 2 quickstart application project from
    GitHub, and
    install necessary npm packages using the following command line scripts.

       git clone quickstart
       cd quickstart
       npm install

By default, the project is configured with all the EJ2 dependencies. Since Card component is a pure CSS component so no need to configure src/system.config.js file. For better understanding, remove that file.

  • The Card CSS files are available in the ej2-layouts package folder.
    This can be referenced in your application using the following code.


@import '../../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
@import '../../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-layouts/styles/material.css';

Adding a simple Card

  • Add the HTML div element with e-card class into your index.html.


        <div class = "e-card">
          Sample Card

Adding a header and content

You can create Card with a header in a specific structure. For adding header you need to create a div element with e-card-header class added.

  • You can include heading inside the Card header by adding a div element with e-card-header-caption class, and also content will be added by adding element with e-card-content. For detailed information, refer to the Header and Content.

        <div class = "e-card">                    --> Root Element
           <div class="e-card-header">           --> Root Header Element
               <div class="e-card-header-caption">    --> Root Heading Element
                  <div class="e-card-header-title"></div>   --> Heading Title Element
               <div class="e-card-content"></div>         --> Card content Element
  • Now, run the application in the browser using the following command.

       npm start

Output will be as follows:
