Getting started with JavaScript (ES5) ListBox control

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

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/15.4.30/Essential JS 2/ej2-dropdowns/dist/global/ej2-dropdowns.min.js

Styles: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.30/Essential JS 2/ej2-dropdowns/styles/material.css

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</title>
            <!-- Essential JS 2 material theme -->
            <link href="resources/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

            <!-- Essential JS 2 ListBox's global script -->
            <script src="resources/ej2-dropdowns.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
       </head>
       <body>
       </body>
  </html>

Step 5: Now, add the input element and initiate the Essential JS 2 ListBox 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"/>

            <!-- Essential JS 2 ListBox's global script -->
            <script src="resources/ej2-dropdowns.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
       </head>
      <body>
           <!-- Add the HTML <input> element  -->
             <input id='listbox' />
            <script>
            // initialize ListBox component
            var listObj = new ej.dropdowns.ListBox();
            // Render initialized ListBox.
            listObj.appendTo('#listbox');
            </script>
       </body>
  </html>

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

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

Example:

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

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

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

            <!-- Essential JS 2 ListBox's global script -->
            <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-dropdowns/dist/global/ej2-dropdowns.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
       </head>
       <body>
           <!-- Add the HTML <input> element  -->
             <input id='listbox' />
            <script>
            // initialize ListBox component
            var listObj = new ej.dropdowns.ListBox();
            // Render initialized ListBox.
            listObj.appendTo('#listbox');
            </script>
       </body>
  </html>

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

Binding data source

After initialization, populate the ListBox with data using the dataSource property. Here, an array of object values is passed to the ListBox component.

            <script>
               var data = [

                    { text: 'Bugatti Chiron', id: 'list-02' },
                    { text: 'Bugatti Veyron Super Sport', id: 'list-03' },
                    { text: 'SSC Ultimate Aero', id: 'list-04' },

                ];
              // initialize ListBox component
                var listObj = new ej.dropdowns.ListBox({
                    dataSource: data
                });
                listObj.appendTo('#listbox');
            </script>
       </body>
  </html>
