Getting started with JavaScript (ES5) Skeleton control

08 Feb 2023 / 4 minutes to read

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 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-notifications\dist\global\ej2-notifications.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-notifications\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 Essentials JS 2 script and style references.

<!-- Essential JS 2 Skeleton's control global script -->
<script src="resources/notifications/ej2-notifications.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

</html>

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

<head>
<title>Essential JS 2</title>
<!-- Essential JS 2 Skeleton's dependency style -->

<!-- Essential JS 2 Skeleton's control style -->
<link href="resources/notifications/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<!-- Essential JS 2 Skeleton's dependency global script -->
<script src="resources/base/ej2-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<!-- Essential JS 2 Skeleton's control global script -->
<script src="resources/notifications/ej2-notifications.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

<body>
<!--element which is going to render-->
<div id='skeleton'></div>
<script>

    // initialize Skeleton control
    var skeleton = new ej.notifications.Skeleton({height:'15px'});

    // Render initialized Skeleton.
    skeleton.appendTo('#skeleton');
</script>
</body>

</html>

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

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

Step 2: The Essential JS 2 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-notifications/dist/global/ej2-notifications.min.js

Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/20.4.48/ej2-notifications/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 Skeleton element and initiate the Essential JS 2 Skeleton control in the index.html by using following code.

<script src="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/20.4.48/ej2-notifications/dist/global/ej2-notifications.min.js"
    type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

<body>
<!--element which is going to render-->
<div id='skeleton'></div>
<script>

    // initialize Skeleton control
    var skeleton = new ej.notifications.Skeleton({ height:'15px' });

    // Render initialized Skeleton.
    skeleton.appendTo('#skeleton');
</script>
</body>

</html>

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

Output will be as follows:

In the previous example, the #skeleton is the id of the HTML element in a page to which the skeleton is initialized.
