    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base

Setup your development environment

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

Copied to clipboard
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]

Copied to clipboard
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-buttons": "syncfusion:ej2-buttons/dist/ej2-buttons.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";
});

Adding SpeedDial to the Application

Add the HTML Button tag with ID attribute as the speeddial to your index.html file.

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

<head>
<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="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css" 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>
</head>

<body>
<div>
    <!--Element to render the SpeedDial control-->
    <button id="speeddial"></button>
</div>

</body>

</html>

Then, import the SpeedDial control in your app.ts file, define the action items using items property and initialize it with the #speeddial.

[src/app/app.ts]

Copied to clipboard
import { SpeedDial, SpeedDialItemModel } from '@syncfusion/ej2-buttons';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

// Initialize action items
let items: SpeedDialItemModel[] = [
{ text: 'Cut' },
{ text: 'Copy' },
{ text: 'Paste' }
];

// Initialize the SpeedDial control
let speeddial: SpeedDial = new SpeedDial({ items: items, content: 'Edit' });

// Render initialized SpeedDial
speeddial.appendTo('#speeddial');

Adding Style sheet to the Application

To render SpeedDial control, need to import Button and its dependent controls styles as given below in style.css.

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