This section explains how to create a simple ButtonGroup, and configure its available functionalities in React by using the React quickstart application.

Dependencies

The list of dependencies required to use the ButtonGroup component in your application is given below:

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons

Installation and Configuration

You can use Create-react-app to setup the applications. To install create-react-app run the following command.

npm install -g create-react-app

Start a new project using create-react-app command as follows

```bash create-react-app quickstart --scripts-version=react-scripts-ts cd quickstart ```
```bash create-react-app quickstart cd quickstart ```

‘react-scripts-ts’ is used for creating React app with typescript.

Adding Syncfusion packages

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

To install ButtonGroup component, use the following command

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons --save

Adding ButtonGroup component to the Application

To include the ButtonGroup component in your application, add a HTML div tag with class name as e-btn-group and to render button
as react component, Button dependencies should be added.

Then import the ButtonComponent from ej2-react-buttons package and add button
elements that should be group inside the div in App.tsx.

Add the ButtonGroup component in application as shown in below code example.

import { ButtonComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-buttons';
import * as React from 'react';
import './App.css';
// Import the Button.

// To render ButtonGroup.
function App() {
  return (
    <div className='e-btn-group'>
      <ButtonComponent>HTML</ButtonComponent>
      <ButtonComponent>CSS</ButtonComponent>
      <ButtonComponent>Javascript</ButtonComponent>
    </div>
  );
}
export default App;
import { ButtonComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-buttons';
import * as React from 'react';
import './App.css';
// Import the Button.
// To render ButtonGroup.
function App() {
    return (<div className='e-btn-group'>
      <ButtonComponent>HTML</ButtonComponent>
      <ButtonComponent>CSS</ButtonComponent>
      <ButtonComponent>Javascript</ButtonComponent>
    </div>);
}
export default App;

Adding CSS Reference

Import the ButtonGroup component’s required CSS references as follows in src/App.css.

@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-popups/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons/styles/material.css";

Running the application

Run the application in the browser by using the following command:

npm start

The following example shows a basic ButtonGroup component.

import { ButtonComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-buttons';
import * as React from 'react';
import * as ReactDom from 'react-dom';
// To render ButtonGroup.
function App() {
    return (<div>
      <div className='e-btn-group'>
        <ButtonComponent>HTML</ButtonComponent>
        <ButtonComponent>CSS</ButtonComponent>
        <ButtonComponent>Javascript</ButtonComponent>
      </div>
    </div>);
}
export default App;
ReactDom.render(<App />, document.getElementById('buttongroup'));
import { ButtonComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-buttons';
import * as React from 'react';
import * as ReactDom from 'react-dom';

// To render ButtonGroup.
function App() {
  return (
    <div>
      <div className='e-btn-group'>
        <ButtonComponent>HTML</ButtonComponent>
        <ButtonComponent>CSS</ButtonComponent>
        <ButtonComponent>Javascript</ButtonComponent>
      </div>
    </div>
  );
}
export default App;
ReactDom.render(<App />,document.getElementById('buttongroup'));
