Adding Syncfusion packages

All the available Essential JS 2 packages are published in npmjs.com public registry. You can choose the component that you want to install. For this application, we are going to use Calendar component.

To install Calendar component, use the following command

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-react-calendars –save

Adding Style sheet to the Application

To render the Calendar component, need to import Calendar and its dependent component’s styles as given below in 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-react-calendars/styles/material.css";

Note: If you want to refer the combined component styles, please make use of our CRG (Custom Resource Generator) in your application.

Adding Calendar component to the Application

  • To include the Calendar component in application import the CalendarComponent from ej2-react-calendars package in App.tsx.

  • Then add the Calendar component as shown in below code example.

[src/App.tsx]

import * as React from "react";
import './App.css';
//import the calendarcomponent
import { CalendarComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-calendars';

export default class App extends React.Component<{}, {}> {
    render() {
        return <CalendarComponent id="calendar" />
    }
};

Run the application

Now run the npm start command in the console, it will run your application and open the browser window.

npm start

The below examples shows the basic calendar component.

Source
Preview
index.tsx
import * as React from "react";
import * as ReactDOM from "react-dom";
//import the calendarcomponent
import { CalendarComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-calendars';

class App extends React.Component<{}, {}> {
    render() {
        return <CalendarComponent id="calendar" />
    }
};
ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('element'));

Setting the value, min and max dates

The following example demonstrates how to set the value, min and max dates on initializing the Calendar. Here the Calendar allows to select a date within a range from 9th to 15th in a month of May 2017.

Source
Preview
index.tsx
import * as React from "react";
import * as ReactDOM from "react-dom";
//import the calendarcomponent
import { CalendarComponent} from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-calendars';

class App extends React.Component<{}, {}> {

    //initialize the value, min and max
    private dateValue: Date = new Date("05/11/2017");
    private minDate: Date = new Date("05/09/2017");
    private maxDate: Date = new Date("05/15/2017");

    render() {
        return <CalendarComponent id="calendar" value={this.dateValue} min={this.minDate} max={this.maxDate} />
    }
};
ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('element'));
