  • html
  • <ej-kanban [dataSource]="kanbanData" keyField="Status" fields.content="Summary" fields.primaryKey="Id" fields.priority="RankId" fields.tag="Tags" fields.color="Type" fields.imageUrl="ImgUrl" allowTitle="true" [cardSettings.colorMapping]="color" [query]="query">

            <e-kanban-column key="InProgress" headertext="In Progress"></e-kanban-column>
            <e-kanban-column key="Close" headertext="Done"></e-kanban-column>
        </e-kanban-columns>
    </ej-kanban>
  • html
  • import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    import { NorthwindService } from '../../services/northwind.service';
    
    @Component({
      selector: 'ej-app',
      templateUrl: 'app/components/kanban/default.component.html',
      providers: [NorthwindService]
    })
    export class DefaultComponent {
      public kanbanData: any;
        constructor(private northwindService: NorthwindService) {
            this.kanbanData = northwindService.getTasks();
            this.query = ej.Query().from('kanbanData').take(20);
        }
        color = {
            "#cb2027": "Bug,Story",
            "#67ab47": "Improvement",
            "#fbae19": "Epic",
            "#6a5da8": "Others"
        };
    }

    The following output is displayed as a result of the above code example.

    Template

    Templates are used to create custom card layout as per the user convenient. HTML templates can be specified in the template property of the cardSettings as an ID of the template’s HTML element.

    The following code example describes the above behavior.

    Place the ng-template in the “index.html” page.

    Tooltip

    You can enable HTML tooltip for Kanban card elements by setting tooltipSettings.enable property as true in tooltipSettings.

    The following code example describes the above behavior.

  • html
  • <ej-kanban [dataSource]="kanbanData" keyField="Status" fields.primaryKey="Id" fields.content="Summary" fields.tag="Tags" [tooltipSettings.enable]="true" [query]="query">
        <e-kanban-columns>

    Template

    By making use of template feature with tooltip, all the field names that are mapped from the dataSource can be accessed to define the template tooltip for card. The tooltipSettings.enable must be enabled first.

    The following code example describes the tooltip template.

    Place the ng-template in the “index.html” page.

  • html
  • <script id="tooltipTemp" type="text/ng-template">
