Getting Started

This section briefly explains how to create a simple ListBox component and configure its available functionalities in React.

Dependencies

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

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-react-dropdowns
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-data
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-react-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns
        |-- @syncfusion/ej2-lists
        |-- @syncfusion/ej2-inputs
        |-- @syncfusion/ej2-popups
            |-- @syncfusion/ej2-buttons

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

create-react-app quickstart --scripts-version=react-scripts-ts

cd quickstart
create-react-app quickstart

cd quickstart

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.

To install ListBox component, use the following command

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

Adding ListBox component

Now, you can start adding ListBox component in the application. For getting started, add the ListBox component in src/App.tsx file using following code.

Add the below code in the src/App.tsx to initialize the ListBox.

import * as React from 'react';
import * as ReactDOM from "react-dom";
import { ListBoxComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-dropdowns';

export default class App extends React.Component<{}, {}> {
  render() {
    return (
       // specifies the tag for render the ListBox component
      <ListBoxComponent id='listbox'></ListBoxComponent>
    );
  }
}

ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('sample'));
import * as React from 'react';
import * as ReactDOM from "react-dom";
import { ListBoxComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-dropdowns';
export default class App extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return (
        // specifies the tag for render the ListBox component
        <ListBoxComponent id='listbox'></ListBoxComponent>);
    }
}
ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('sample'));

Adding CSS reference

Import the ListBox component required CSS references as follows in src/App.css.

/* import the ListBox dependency styles */

@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-react-inputs/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-react-dropdowns/styles/material.css";

Binding data source

After initialization, populate the ListBox with data using the dataSource property. Here, an array of object is passed to the ListBox component.

import * as React from 'react';
import * as ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { ListBoxComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-dropdowns';

export default class App extends React.Component<{}, {}> {
  // define the array of object
   private data: { [key: string]: Object }[] = [
    { text: 'Hennessey Venom', id: 'list-01' },
    { text: 'Bugatti Chiron', id: 'list-02' },
    { text: 'Bugatti Veyron Super Sport', id: 'list-03' },
    { text: 'SSC Ultimate Aero', id: 'list-04' },
    { text: 'Koenigsegg CCR', id: 'list-05' },
    { text: 'McLaren F1', id: 'list-06' },
    { text: 'Aston Martin One- 77', id: 'list-07' },
    { text: 'Jaguar XJ220', id: 'list-08' },
    { text: 'McLaren P1', id: 'list-09' },
    { text: 'Ferrari LaFerrari', id: 'list-10' },
];
  render() {
    return (
        // specifies the tag for render the ListBox component
      <ListBoxComponent dataSource={this.data} />
    );
  }
}
ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('sample'));
import * as React from 'react';
import * as ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { ListBoxComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-dropdowns';
export default class App extends React.Component {
    constructor() {
        super(...arguments);
        // define the array of object
        this.data = [
            { text: 'Hennessey Venom', id: 'list-01' },
            { text: 'Bugatti Chiron', id: 'list-02' },
            { text: 'Bugatti Veyron Super Sport', id: 'list-03' },
            { text: 'SSC Ultimate Aero', id: 'list-04' },
            { text: 'Koenigsegg CCR', id: 'list-05' },
            { text: 'McLaren F1', id: 'list-06' },
            { text: 'Aston Martin One- 77', id: 'list-07' },
            { text: 'Jaguar XJ220', id: 'list-08' },
            { text: 'McLaren P1', id: 'list-09' },
            { text: 'Ferrari LaFerrari', id: 'list-10' },
        ];
    }
    render() {
        return (
        // specifies the tag for render the ListBox component
        <ListBoxComponent dataSource={this.data}/>);
    }
}
ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('sample'));
