Getting Started

This section explains how to create a simple Chip and to configure the Chip control.


The list of dependencies required to use the Chip control in your application as follows.

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-buttons
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base

Setup your development environment

To get started with the Chip control, clone the Essential JS 2 quickstart project using the following commands:

git clone quickstart
cd quickstart
npm install

This project is preconfigured with common settings (src/styles/styles.css, system.config.js) to start all the Essential JS 2 controls.

Add Chip to the project

Add the HTML <div> element for Chip control to your index.html file.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

    <title>Essential JS 2</title>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />
    <meta name="description" content="Essential JS 2" />
    <meta name="author" content="Syncfusion" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="resources/favicon.ico" />
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet" />

    <!--Style reference from app-->
    <link href="/styles/styles.css" rel="stylesheet" />

    <!--System js reference and configuration-->
    <script src="node_modules/systemjs/dist/system.src.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="system.config.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

        <!--Element which is going to render-->
        <div id="chip">Janet Leverling</div>



Then, import the Chip control in your app.ts file, and initialize it with the #chip.


import { ChipList } from '@syncfusion/ej2-buttons';

// Initialize and Render Chip control

 chip = new ChipList({}, '#chip');

Run the application

Run the application in the browser using the following command.

npm start

The following example shows a basic Chip control.

import { ChipList } from '@syncfusion/ej2-buttons';

// Initialize and Render Chip control

let chip: ChipList = new ChipList({
    text: 'Janet Leverling'
