Control Initialization

The JavaScript (ES5) Floating Action Button control can be initialized by using either of the following ways.

  • 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: Create an app folder quickstart for getting started.

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

Syntax:

Dependency Script: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\{DEPENDENCY_PACKAGE_NAME}\dist\global\{DEPENDENCY_PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Control Script: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\{PACKAGE_NAME}\dist\global\{PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Dependency Styles: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\{DEPENDENCY_PACKAGE_NAME}\styles\material.css

Control Styles: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\{PACKAGE_NAME}\styles\material.css

Example:

Dependency Script: C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\20.3.0.47\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2-base\dist\global\ej2-base.min.js

Control Script: C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\20.3.0.47\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2-buttons\dist\global\ej2-buttons.min.js

Dependency Styles: C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\20.3.0.47\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2-base\styles\material.css

Control Styles: C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\20.3.0.47\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2-buttons\styles\material.css

The below located script and style file contains all Syncfusion JavaScript (ES5) UI control resources in a single file.

Scripts: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2\dist\ej2.min.js

Styles: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2\material.css

The Custom Resource Generator (CRG) is an online web tool, which can be used to generate the custom script and styles for a set of specific controls. This web tool is useful to combine the required control scripts and styles in a single file.

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

Step 4: Create a HTML page (index.html) in ~/quickstart/index.html location and add the JavaScript (ES5) script and style references.

        <!-- JavaScript (ES5) Floating Action Button's control global script -->
        <script src="resources/buttons/ej2-buttons.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
   </head>
   <body>
        <!--Element to render the Floating Action Button control-->
        <button id='fab'></button>
        <script>
            // Initialize Floating Action Button control
            var fab = new ej.buttons.Fab({ content:'Add'});

            // Render initialized Floating Action Button.
            fab.appendTo('#fab');
        </script>
   </body>
  </html>

Step 6: Now, run the index.html in web browser, it will render the Syncfusion JavaScript (ES5) Floating Action Button control.

Step 1: Create an app folder quickstart for getting started.

Step 2: The JavaScript (ES5) control’s global scripts and styles are already hosted in the below CDN link formats.

Syntax:

Dependency Script: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/20.4.48/{DEPENDENCY_PACKAGE_NAME}/dist/global/{PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Control Script: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/20.4.48/{PACKAGE_NAME}/dist/global/{PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Dependency Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/20.4.48/{DEPENDENCY_PACKAGE_NAME}/styles/material.css

Control Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/20.4.48/{PACKAGE_NAME}/styles/material.css

Example:

Script: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/20.4.48/ej2-buttons/dist/global/ej2-buttons.min.js

Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/20.4.48/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css

Step 3: Create a HTML page (index.html) in ~/quickstart/index.html location and add the CDN link references. Now, add the Floating Action Button element and initiate the JavaScript (ES5) Floating Action Button control in the index.html by using following code.

        <script>
            ej.base.enableRipple(true);

            // initialize Floating Action Button control
            var fab = new ej.buttons.Fab({ content:'Add', target:"#targetElement"});

            // Render initialized Floating Action Button.
            fab.appendTo('#fab');
        </script>
   </body>
  </html>

Step 4: Now, run the index.html in web browser, it will render the Syncfusion JavaScript Floating Action Button control.
