Getting Started

Refer the Getting Started page of the Introduction part to know more about the basic system requirements and the steps to configure the Syncfusion components in an ASP.NET Core application.

Now, refer the necessary scripts and CSS files into your _Layout.cshtml page from the wwwroot -> lib -> syncfusion-javascript folder.

  • cshtml
  • <html>
        <head>
            <environment names="Development">
                <link rel="stylesheet" href="~/lib/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css" />
                <link rel="stylesheet" href="~/css/site.css" />
                <link href="~/lib/syncfusion-javascript/Content/ej/web/default-theme/ej.web.all.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
                <link href="~/lib/syncfusion-javascript/Content/ej/web/responsive-css/ej.responsive.css" rel="stylesheet" />
            </environment>
        </head>
        <body>
            <environment names="Development">
                <script src="~/lib/jquery/dist/jquery.js"></script>
                <script src="~/lib/bootstrap/dist/js/bootstrap.js"></script>
                <script src="~/js/site.js" asp-append-version="true"></script>        
                <script src="~/lib/syncfusion-javascript/Scripts/jsrender.min.js"></script>
                <script src="~/lib/syncfusion-javascript/Scripts/ej/web/ej.web.all.min.js"></script>
            </environment>
        </body>
        </html>

    It is necessary to define the following namespace within the _viewImports.cshtml page in order to make use of the Kanban component with the tag helper support.

  • cshtml
  • @using Syncfusion.JavaScript
        @addTagHelper "*, Syncfusion.EJ"

    NOTE

    Script manager must be defined at the bottom of the _Layout.cshtml page.

    Data Binding

    You can bind the data to Kanban control by either locally or remotely. Assign the local data to Datasource property of Kanban control to bind local data.

    <ej-kanban id="KanbanBoard" dataSource="ViewBag.datasource">
                <e-kanbancolumns>
                    <e-kanbancolumn header-text="Backlog" key=@(new List<string>(){"Open"})>
                    </e-kanbancolumn>
                    <e-kanbancolumn header-text="In Progress" key=@(new List<string>() {"InProgress"})></e-kanbancolumn>
                    <e-kanbancolumn header-text="Done" key=@(new List<string>() {"Close"})></e-kanbancolumn>

    Mapping Values

    In order to display cards in Kanban control, you need to map the database fields to Kanban cards and ` e-kanbancolumn`. The required mapping field are listed as follows

    • key-field - Map the column name to use as key values to columns.
    • e-kanbancolumn- Map the corresponding key values of key-field column to each columns
    • content - Map the column name to use as content to cards in the Fields.
    • primary-key- Map the column name to use as Primary Key in Fields.

    Enable Swimlane

    Swimlane can be enabled by mapping the swimlane-key to appropriate column name in DataSource. This enables the grouping of the cards based on the mapped column values.

    Adding Filters

    Filter allows to filter the collection of cards from DataSource which meets the predefined query in the filters collection. To enable filtering, define FilterSettings collection with display Text and ej.Query.

    <ej-kanban id="KanbanBoard" key-field="Status" dataSource="ViewBag.datasource">
                <e-kanbancolumns>
