This section explains how to create a simple AppBar, and configure its available functionalities in React.


The following list of dependencies are required to use the AppBar component in your application.

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-react-navigations
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-react-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-navigations
        |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base

Setup your development environment

To set-up a React application, choose any of the following ways. The best and easiest way is to use the create-react-app. It sets up your development environment in JavaScript and improvise your application for production. Refer to the installation instructions of create-react-app.

npx create-react-app my-app
cd my-app
npm start


yarn create react-app my-app
cd my-app
yarn start

To set-up a React application in TypeScript environment, run the following command.

npx create-react-app my-app --template typescript
cd my-app
npm start

Besides using the npm package runner tool, also create an application from the npm init. To begin with the npm init, upgrade the npm version to npm 6+.

npm init react-app my-app
cd my-app
npm start

Adding Syncfusion packages

All the available Essential JS 2 packages are published in public registry.

To install AppBar component, use the following command

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-react-navigations --save
npm install @syncfusion/ej2-react-buttons --save

The above command installs AppBar dependencies
which are required to render the component in the React environment.

Adding Style sheet to the Application

Add AppBar component’s styles as given below in App.css.

@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-navigations/styles/material.css";

Add AppBar to the project

Now, you can create AppBar component in the application. Add AppBar component in src/App.ts file using the following code snippet.

import { AppBarComponent } from "@syncfusion/ej2-react-navigations";
import { ButtonComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-buttons';
import * as React from "react";

const App = () => {
  return (
    <div className='control-container'>
      <AppBarComponent colorMode="Primary">
        <ButtonComponent cssClass='e-inherit menu' iconCss='e-icons e-menu'></ButtonComponent>
        <span className="regular">React AppBar</span>
        <div className="e-appbar-spacer"></div>
        <ButtonComponent cssClass='e-inherit login'>FREE TRIAL</ButtonComponent>

export default App;

Run the application

Run the application in the browser using the following command:

npm start
