Getting Started with JavaScript(ES5)

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

Component Initialization

Create an app folder myapp in local machine to initialize Essential JS 2 JavaScript components.

Using either of the following way to refer the required script and styles.

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

Using local script and style references in a HTML page

Step 1: You can get the global scripts and styles from the Essential Studio JavaScript (Essential JS 2) build installed location.

Step 2: To render DateRangePicker component, need to add DateRangePicker and its dependent packages from below installed location.

Dependencies

  • ej2-base

  • ej2-buttons

  • ej2-inputs

  • ej2-popups

  • ej2-lists

  • ej2-calendars

Syntax:

package: **(installed location)**/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/{RELEASE_VERSION}/Essential JS 2/{PACKAGE_NAME

Example:

Package: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.30/Essential JS 2/ej2-base

packages: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.30/Essential JS 2/ej2-buttons

packages: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.30/Essential JS 2/ej2-inputs

packages: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.30/Essential JS 2/ej2-popups

packages: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.30/Essential JS 2/ej2-lists

Package: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.30/Essential JS 2/ej2-calendars

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

Step 4: Create a 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 DateRangePicker Component</title>
    <!-- Essential JS 2 DateRangePicker's dependent material theme -->
    <link href="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-base/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <link href="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <link href="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-calendars/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    <!-- Essential JS 2 all script -->
    <!-- <script src="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/dist/ej2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> -->

    <!-- Essential JS 2 DateRangePicker's dependent scripts -->
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-base/dist/global/ej2-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-inputs/dist/global/ej2-inputs.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-buttons/dist/global/ej2-buttons.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-lists/dist/global/ej2-lists.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-popups/dist/global/ej2-popups.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-calendars/dist/global/ej2-calendars.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>
<body>
</body>

</html>

If you want to refer the combined component styles, please make use of our CRG (Custom Resource Generator) in your application.

Step 5: Now, add the input element and initiate the Essential JS 2 DateRangePicker component in the index.html by using following code

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>
    <title>Essential JS 2 DateRangePicker Component</title>
    <!-- Essential JS 2 DateRangePicker's dependent material theme -->
    <link href="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-base/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <link href="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <link href="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-calendars/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    <!-- Essential JS 2 all script -->
    <!-- <script src="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/dist/ej2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> -->

    <!-- Essential JS 2 DateRangePicker's dependent scripts -->
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-base/dist/global/ej2-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-inputs/dist/global/ej2-inputs.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-buttons/dist/global/ej2-buttons.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-lists/dist/global/ej2-lists.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-popups/dist/global/ej2-popups.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-calendars/dist/global/ej2-calendars.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

<body>
    <!-- Add the HTML <input> element  -->
    <input id="element" />
    <script>
        // initialize button component
        var DateRangePicker = new ej.calendars.DateRangePicker();

        // Render initialized button.
        DateRangePicker.appendTo('#element')
    </script>
</body>

</html>

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

Step 1: The Essential JS 2 components scripts and styles are already hosted in the below CDN link formats.

Syntax:

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

Style: http://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/styles/material.css

Example:

Script: http://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-calendars/dist/global/ej2-calendars.min.js

Styles: http://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-calendars/styles/material.css

Step 2: Have to add CDN global script and style for calender and its dependent packages in myapp/index.html like below.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>
    <title>Essential JS 2 Calendar Component</title>
    <!-- Essential JS 2 DateRangePicker's dependent material theme -->
    <link href="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-base/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <link href="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <link href="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-calendars/styles/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    <!-- Essential JS 2 all script -->
    <!-- <script src="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/dist/ej2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> -->

    <!-- Essential JS 2 DateRangePicker's dependent scripts -->
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-base/dist/global/ej2-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-inputs/dist/global/ej2-inputs.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-buttons/dist/global/ej2-buttons.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-lists/dist/global/ej2-lists.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-popups/dist/global/ej2-popups.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="//cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-calendars/dist/global/ej2-calendars.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

<body>
    <!-- Add the HTML <input> element  -->
    <input id="element" />
    <script>
        // initialize DateRangePicker component
        var DateRangeObj = new ej.calendars.DateRangePicker();
        // Render initialized DateRangePicker.
        DateRangeObj.appendTo('#element')
    </script>
</body>

</html>

When referencing CDN links in application, always ensure the network connection will be in enabled state.

Setting the start and end date

The start and end date in a range can be defined with the help of startDate and endDate property. The following example demonstrates to set the start and end date on initializing the DateRangePicker.

index.js
index.html
var daterangepicker = new ej.calendars.DateRangePicker({
        placeholder: 'Select a range',
        //sets the start date in the range
        startDate: new Date("11/9/2017"),
        //sets the end date in the range
        endDate: new Date("11/21/2017")
    });
    daterangepicker.appendTo('#element');
