Create a simple PHP Application

To use Essential JS for PHP in your PHP web site, follow the below steps:

  1. Copy Essential JavaScript and CSS files from /scripts and /themes to your web site root. And include the necessary files in your PHP page.
  • html
  • <head>
            <link rel="stylesheet" href="themes/bootstrap-theme/ej.web.all.min.css" />
    		<script src="scripts/external/jquery-3.1.1.min.js"></script> 
    		<script src="scripts/web/ej.web.all.min.js"> </script>
        </head>
    1. Copy the individual component source files from /Src to your directory. Include the Essential JS for PHP AutoLoad.php file available in the /Src directory. This file automatically retrieves the required source class files to render the specified controls.
  • html
  • <body>
            <?php require_once 'Src/AutoLoad.php'; ?>
            <!--Enter your code to render EJ controls -->
        </body>
    1. Use any Essential JS for PHP wrapper. For Example, to use DatePicker refer below.
  • html
  • <?php
        $date = new \EJ\DatePicker("datepicker"); // initialize a new instance of DatePicker with id
        echo $date->width("100%")->height("40px")->watermarkText("select a date")->render(); // configure the DatePicker using the fluent API and display the output
        ?>
    1. Run the PHP web site, the DatePicker widget will be displayed as shown below,
