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

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-navigations/dist/global/ej2-navigations.min.js

Styles: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.30/Essential JS 2/ej2-navigations/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 Toolbar's global script -->
            <script src="resources/ej2-navigations.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
       </head>
       <body>
       </body>
  </html>

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

Initialize the Toolbar with commands

The Toolbar can be rendered by defining an array of items. An item is rendered with text by defining the default item type as a Button. For more information about item configuration, refer to the Item Configuration section.

<!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 Toolbar's global script -->
            <script src="resources/ej2-navigations.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
       </head>
       <body>
            <!-- Add the HTML <div> element  -->
             <div id="element"></div>
            <script>
//Initialize Toolbar component

//Initialize Toolbar component

    var toolbar = new ej.navigations.Toolbar({
    items: [
      { text: 'Cut' },
      { text: 'Copy' },
      { text: 'Paste' },
      { type: 'Separator'},
      { text: 'Bold' },
      { text: 'Italic' },
      { text: 'Underline' },
    ]
    });

//Render initialized Toolbar component
    toolbar.appendTo('#element');

            </script>
       </body>
  </html>

Step 6: Now, run the index.html in web browser, it will render the Essential JS 2 Toolbar 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-navigations/dist/global/ej2-navigations.min.js

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

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

       </head>
       <body>
           <!-- Add the HTML <div> element  -->
             <div id="element"></div>
            <script>
//Initialize Toolbar component

    var toolbar = new ej.navigations.Toolbar({
    items: [
      { text: 'Cut' },
      { text: 'Copy' },
      { text: 'Paste' },
      { type: 'Separator'},
      { text: 'Bold' },
      { text: 'Italic' },
      { text: 'Underline' },
    ]
    });

//Render initialized Toolbar component
    toolbar.appendTo('#element');

            </script>
       </body>
  </html>

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