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

The Essential JS 2 JavaScript components 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 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

Example:

Script: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/16.2.45/Essential JS 2/ej2-heatmap/dist/global/ej2-heatmap.min.js

Step 3: Create a folder myapp/resources and copy/paste the dependent 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</title>
            <script src="resources/ej2-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
            <script src="resources/ej2-data.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
            <script src="resources/ej2-svg-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
            <script src="resources/ej2-heatmap.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
       </head>
       <body>
       </body>
  </html>

Step 5: Now, add the div element and initiate the Essential JS 2 Heatmap 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>
            <script src="resources/ej2-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
            <script src="resources/ej2-data.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
            <script src="resources/ej2-svg-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
            <script src="resources/ej2-heatmap.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
       </head>
       <body>
            <!-- Add the HTML <div> element  -->
             <div id="container"></div>
            <script>
                // initialize heatmap component
                var heatmap = new ej.heatmap.HeatMap();

                // Render initialized heatmap.
                heatmap.appendTo('#container')
            </script>
       </body>
  </html>

Step 6: Now, run the index.html in web browser, it will render the Essential JS 2 heatmap 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 below CDN link formats.

Syntax:

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

Example:

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

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

                var heatmap = new ej.heatmap.HeatMap();

                // Render initialized heatmap.
                heatmap.appendTo('#container')

if(ele) {
    ele.style.visibility = "visible";
 }   
        </script>
<script src="index.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</body></html>

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

Add custom cell palette

The default palette settings of the heat map cells can be customized by using the paletteSettings property. Using the palette property in paletteSettings object, you can change the color set for the cells. You can change the color mode of the cells to fixed or gradient mode using the type property.
