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 DatePicker component.

To install DatePicker component, use the following command

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

Adding Style sheet to the Application

To render the DatePicker component, need to import DatePicker 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-inputs/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-popups/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 DatePicker component to the Application

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

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

[src/App.tsx]

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

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

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 <DatePickerComponent id="datepicker" value={this.dateValue} min={this.minDate} max={this.maxDate} />;
    }
