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-charts\dist\global\ej2-charts.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 charts's global script (Control Script) -->
        <script src="resources/charts/ej2-charts.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    </head>
    <body>
    </body>
</html>

Step 5: Now, add the Charts element and initiate the Syncfusion JavaScript (ES5) Charts 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 sparkline's global script (Control Script) -->
        <script src="resources/charts/ej2-charts.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <!-- Add the HTML <sparkline> element  -->
        <sparkline id="element">Sparkline</sparkline>
        <script>
            // initialize sparkline control
            var sparkline = new ej.charts.Sparkline();
            // Render initialized sparkline.
            sparkline.appendTo('#element');
        </script>
    </body>
</html>

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

Bind data source to sparkline

The [dataSource] property is used for binding data source to the sparkline. This property takes the collection value as input. For example, a list of objects can be provided as input.

Change the type of sparkline

You can change the sparkline type by setting the [type] property to [Line], [Column], [WinLoss], [Pie], or [Area]. Here, the sparkline type has been set to [area].

Enable tooltip for sparkline

The sparkline displays additional information through tooltip when the mouse is hovered over the sparkline. You can enable tooltip by setting the [visible] property to true in [tooltipSettings] and injecting SparklineTooltip module using the Sparkline.Inject(SparklineTooltip ) method.
