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.

Control Initialization

The Essential JS 2 JavaScript controls can be initialized by using either of the following ways.

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

Using local script references in a HTML page

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

Step 2: You can get the global scripts 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

Example:

Dependency Script: C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\16.3.0.17\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2-base\dist\global\ej2-base.min.js

Control Script: C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\16.3.0.17\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2-lineargauge\dist\global\ej2-lineargauge.min.js

The below located script 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

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

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

Step 4: Create a HTML page (index.html) in ~/quickstart/index.html and add the Essentials JS 2 script references.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
        <title>Essential JS 2</title>

        <!-- Essential JS 2 Base's global script (Dependency Script) -->
        <script src="resources/base/ej2-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <!-- Essential JS 2 lineargauge's global script (Control Script) -->
        <script src="resources/lineargauge/ej2-lineargauge.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    </head>
    <body>
    </body>
</html>

Step 5: Now, add the LinearGauge element and initiate the Syncfusion JavaScript (ES5) LinearGauge control in the ~/quickstart/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 Base's global script (Dependency Script) -->
        <script src="resources/base/ej2-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <!-- Essential JS 2 lineargauge's global script (Control Script) -->
        <script src="resources/lineargauge/ej2-lineargauge.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <!-- Add the HTML <lineargauge> element  -->
        <lineargauge id="element">Linear Gauge</lineargauge>
        <script>
            // initialize lineargauge control
            var lineargauge = new ej.lineargauge.LinearGauge();
            // Render initialized lineargauge.
            lineargauge.appendTo('#element');
        </script>
    </body>
</html>

Step 6: Now, run the index.html in web browser, it will render the Syncfusion JavaScript Lineargauge control.

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

Step 2: The Essential JS 2 controls’s global scripts is already hosted in the below CDN link formats.

Syntax:

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

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

Example:

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

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

The below example shows a basic linear gauge component.

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 Syncfusion JavaScript Lineargauge control.

Add Gauge Title

You can add a title using title property to the linear gauge to provide quick information to the user.

if(ele) {

 }   
        </script>
<script src="index.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</body></html>

Axis Range

You can set the range to the axis using minimum and maximum properties.

    }]
});

    ele.style.visibility = "visible";
 }   
        </script>

</body></html>

To denote the axis values with temperature units, we can add °C as suffix to each label. This can be achieved by setting the {value}°C to the format property of labelStyle in the axis. Here, {value} acts as a placeholder for each axis label.

You can change the pointer value from the default value of the gauge by settings the value property in pointers option in axis.
