Getting Started

This section explains how to create a simple RadioButton, and to configure its available functionalities in TypeScript using Essential JS 2 quickstart seed repository.

Dependencies

The following list of dependencies are required to use the RadioButton component in your application.

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

Setup your development environment

To get started with RadioButton component, you can clone the Essential JS 2 quickstart project and install the npm packages by using the following commands.

git clone https://github.com/syncfusion/ej2-quickstart.git quickstart
cd quickstart
npm install

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

[src/system.config.js]

System.config({
    paths: {
        'npm:': './node_modules/',
        'syncfusion:': 'npm:@syncfusion/'
    },
    map: {
        app: 'app',

        //Syncfusion packages mapping
        "@syncfusion/ej2-base": "syncfusion:ej2-base/dist/ej2-base.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-data": "syncfusion:ej2-data/dist/ej2-data.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-inputs": "syncfusion:ej2-inputs/dist/ej2-inputs.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-buttons": "syncfusion:ej2-buttons/dist/ej2-buttons.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons": "syncfusion:ej2-splitbuttons/dist/ej2-splitbuttons.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-lists": "syncfusion:ej2-lists/dist/ej2-lists.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-popups": "syncfusion:ej2-popups/dist/ej2-popups.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns": "syncfusion:ej2-dropdowns/dist/ej2-dropdowns.umd.min.js",
    },
    packages: {
        'app': { main: 'app', defaultExtension: 'js' }
    }
});

System.import('app.ts').catch(console.error.bind(console)).then(function () {
    document.getElementById('loader').style.display = "none";
    document.getElementById('container').style.visibility = "visible";
});

Add RadioButton to the project

Add the HTML input tag with id attribute as the element to your index.html file.

[src/index.html]

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

    <title>Essential JS 2</title>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />

    <!--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>
</head>

<body>
    <div>
        <!--element which is going to render-->
        <input id="element" type="radio"/>
    </div>

</body>

</html>

Import the RadioButton component in your app.ts file and initialize it with the #element as shown in the following.

[src/app/app.ts]

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

// Initialize RadioButton component.
let radiobutton: RadioButton = new RadioButton({ label: 'Default'});

// Render initialized RadioButton component.
radiobutton.appendTo('#element');

Adding Style sheet to the Application

To render RadioButton component, need to import Button and its dependent components styles as given below in style.css.

@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";

Run the application

Run the application in the browser by using the following command:

npm start

The following example shows a basic RadioButton component.

Source
Preview
app.ts
index.html
styles.css
import { RadioButton } from '@syncfusion/ej2-buttons';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

// Initialize RadioButton component.
let radiobutton: RadioButton = new RadioButton({ label: 'Option 1', name: 'default'});

// Render initialized RadioButton.
radiobutton.appendTo('#element1');

radiobutton = new RadioButton({ label: 'Option 2', name: 'default', checked: true});
radiobutton.appendTo('#element2');

Change the RadioButton state

The Essential JS 2 RadioButton contains 2 states visually, they are as follows:

  • Checked
  • Unchecked

The RadioButton checked property is used to handle the checked and unchecked state. In the checked state an inner circle will be added to the visualization of RadioButton.

Source
Preview
app.ts
index.html
styles.css
import { RadioButton } from '@syncfusion/ej2-buttons';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

//checked state.
let radiobutton: RadioButton = new RadioButton({ label: 'Option 1', name: 'state', checked: true });
radiobutton.appendTo('#radiobutton1');

//unchecked state.
radiobutton = new RadioButton({ label: 'Option 2', name: 'state' });
radiobutton.appendTo('#radiobutton2');
