Getting Started with JavaScript(ES5)

The Essential JS 2 for JavaScript (global script) is an ES5 formatted pure JavaScript framework that can be directly used in latest web browsers.

Component initialization

The Essential JS 2 JavaScript components can be initialized by using any of the following two ways:

  • Using local script and style references in an HTML page.
  • Using CDN link for script and style reference.

Using local script and style references in an HTML page

Step 1: Create an app folder myapp for Essential JS 2 JavaScript components.

Step 2: You can get the global scripts and styles from the Essential Studio JavaScript (Essential JS 2) build installed location.

Syntax:

Script: **(installed location)**/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/{RELEASE_VERSION}/Essential JS 2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/dist/global/{PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Styles: **(installed location)**/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/{RELEASE_VERSION}/Essential JS 2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/styles/material.css

Example:

Script: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.17/Essential JS 2/ej2-lists/dist/global/ej2-lists.min.js

Styles: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.17/Essential JS 2/ej2-layouts/styles/material.css

Step 3: Create a folder myapp/resources, and copy and paste the global scripts and styles from the above installed location to myapp/resources location.

Step 4: Create an HTML page (index.html) in myapp location and add the Essentials JS 2 script and style references.

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
       <head>
            <title>Essential JS 2</title>
            <!-- Essential JS 2 material theme -->
            <link href="resources/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
       </head>
       <body>
       </body>
  </html>

Step 5: Now, create a span element to apply the Essential JS 2 Card component in the index.html by using following code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
       <head>
            <title>Essential JS 2</title>
            <!-- Essential JS 2 material theme -->
            <link href="resources/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

       </head>
       <body>
            <!-- Add the HTML <span> element  -->
             <span class='e-card'></span>
       </body>
  </html>

Step 6: Now, open the index.html in web browser, it will render the Essential JS 2 Card component.

Step 1: Create an app folder myapp for the Essential JS 2 JavaScript components.

Step 2: The Essential JS 2 component’s global scripts and styles are already hosted in the following CDN link formats.

Syntax:

Script: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/dist/global/{PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/styles/material.css

Example:

Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-layouts/styles/material.css

Step 3: Create an HTML page (index.html) in myapp location and add the CDN link references. Now, add the span element and initiate the Essential JS 2 Card component in the index.html by using the following code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
       <head>
            <title>Essential JS 2</title>
            <!-- Essential JS 2 material theme -->
            <link href="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-base/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
            <link href="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-layouts/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
       </head>
       <body>
           <!-- Add the HTML <span> element  -->
            <span class='e-card'>This is simple Card</span>
       </body>
  </html>

Step 4: Now, open the index.html in the web browser, it will render the Essential JS 2 Card component.

Need to refer dependency component styles and scripts as like above example. We can also use CRG to generate combined component styles.

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>
            <div class="e-card-content"></div>         --> Card content Element
        </div>
    </div>
  • Now, open the html file in the web browser, it will render the Card component with header and content.

Output will be as follows:
