Getting started in EJ2 TypeScript Stepper control

5 Jan 20249 minutes to read

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

This application is integrated with the webpack.config.js configuration and uses the latest version of the webpack-cli. It requires node v14.15.0 or higher. For more information about webpack and its features, refer to the webpack documentation.

Dependencies

The following list of dependencies is required to use the Stepper control in your application.

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-navigations
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-popups

Set up development environment

Open the command prompt from the required directory, and run the following command to clone the Syncfusion JavaScript (Essential JS 2) quickstart project from GitHub.

git clone https://github.com/SyncfusionExamples/ej2-quickstart-webpack- ej2-quickstart

After cloning the application in the ej2-quickstart folder, run the following command line to navigate to the ej2-quickstart folder.

cd ej2-quickstart

Add Syncfusion JavaScript packages

Syncfusion JavaScript (Essential JS 2) packages are available on the npmjs.com public registry. You can install all Syncfusion JavaScript (Essential JS 2) controls in a single @syncfusion/ej2 package or individual packages for each control.

The quickstart application is preconfigured with the dependent @syncfusion/ej2 package in the ~/package.json file. Use the following command to install the dependent npm packages from the command prompt.

npm install

Import the Syncfusion CSS styles

To render Stepper control, need to import navigations and its dependent controls styles as given below in the ~/src/styles/styles.css file, as shown below:

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

Adding Stepper control to the application

Open the application in Visual Studio Code and add the Syncfusion JavaScript UI controls.

Add the HTML nav tag with the id attribute as stepper to your index.html file.

[src/index.html]

<html lang="en">

  <head>
    <title>Essential JS 2 - Stepper</title>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />

  </head>

  <body>
    <div class="control-container">
      <nav id="stepper"></nav>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>

Import the Stepper control in your app.ts file, define the steps using steps property, and initialize it with #stepper.

[src/app/app.ts]

import { Stepper } from '@syncfusion/ej2-navigations';

let stepper: Stepper = new Stepper({
  steps: [{}, {}, {}, {}, {}],
});
stepper.appendTo("#stepper");

Run the application

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

npm start

The following example demonstrates the usage of a basic Stepper control.

import { Stepper } from '@syncfusion/ej2-navigations';

// Initializes the Stepper control
let stepper: Stepper = new Stepper({
  steps: [{}, {}, {}, {}, {}]
});

// Render initialized Stepper.
stepper.appendTo("#stepper");

Configure icon and label

You can define the step icon and label by setting the iconCss and label properties.

import { Stepper, StepModel } from '@syncfusion/ej2-navigations';

let iconWithLabel: StepModel[] = [
  { label: 'Cart', iconCss: 'sf-icon-cart' },
  { label: 'Address', iconCss: 'sf-icon-user' },
  { label: 'Delivery', iconCss: 'sf-icon-transport' },
  { label: 'Payment', iconCss: 'sf-icon-payment' },
  { label: 'Ordered', iconCss: 'sf-icon-success' }
];

let iconLabelStepper: Stepper = new Stepper({
  steps: iconWithLabel
});

iconLabelStepper.appendTo('#stepper');
