					<th>Temp. (F)</th>
					<th>Summary</th>
				</tr>
			</thead>
			<tbody>
				@foreach (var forecast in forecasts)
				{
					<tr>
						<td>@forecast.Date.ToShortDateString()</td>
						<td>@forecast.TemperatureC</td>
						<td>@forecast.TemperatureF</td>
						<td>@forecast.Summary</td>
					</tr>
				}
			</tbody>
		</table>
	</Table>
}

@code {
	private WeatherForecast[] forecasts;

	protected override async Task OnInitializedAsync()
	{
		forecasts = await Http.GetFromJsonAsync<WeatherForecast[]>("sample-data/weather.json");
	}

	public class WeatherForecast
	{
		public DateTime Date { get; set; }

		public int TemperatureC { get; set; }

		public string Summary { get; set; }

		public int TemperatureF => 32 + (int)(TemperatureC / 0.5556);
	}
}
7. Edit Program.cs
using BlazorApp;  
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.Web;  
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.WebAssembly.Hosting;

    Smart UI Desktop App with Blazor and Windows Forms

    Blazor - Desktop Crossplatform

    Getting Started

    This tutorial will show you how you can use Smart components in a Blazor Desktop app with .NET 6, running in both a web browser and in WinForms.

    Prerequisites

    • Visual Studio 2022
    • .NET 6 SDK

    Before getting started you need to have Visual Studio 2022 with .NET 6 SDK installed.

    Blazor Server App

    First, we will start by opening Visual Studio 2022 and creating a Blazor Server App called CrossPlatformBlazor with target framework .NET 6.0

    Create Blazor Server App

    Then we need to add Smart.Blazor NuGet package to the project.

    Smart NuGet Blazor Server

    Open the \_Imports.razor file and add `@using Smart.Blazor`.
    Then open the \Pages\_Layout.cshtml file and include a theme CSS file by adding this snippet:

      <link href="_content/Smart.Blazor/css/smart.default.css" rel="stylesheet" />
            
    and Smart source files by adding this snipet:
      <script src="_content/Smart.Blazor/js/smart.blazor.js"><script>
      <script src="_content/Smart.Blazor/js/smart.elements.js"></script>
            

    The next step is to open the Program.cs file and to add builder.Services.AddSmart(); and using Smart.Blazor; in the using statements.

    After that Program.cs file should look like this:

        using CrossPlatformBlazor.Data;
        using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components;
        using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.Web;
        using Smart.Blazor;
    
        var builder = WebApplication.CreateBuilder(args);
    
        // Add services to the container.
        builder.Services.AddRazorPages();
        builder.Services.AddServerSideBlazor();
        builder.Services.AddSingleton<WeatherForecastService>();
        // Add Smart UI for Blazor.  
        builder.Services.AddSmart();
        
        var app = builder.Build();
        
        // Configure the HTTP request pipeline.
        if (!app.Environment.IsDevelopment())
        {
            app.UseExceptionHandler("/Error");
            // The default HSTS value is 30 days. You may want to change this for production scenarios, see https://aka.ms/aspnetcore-hsts.
            app.UseHsts();
        }
    
        app.UseHttpsRedirection();
    
        app.UseStaticFiles();
    
        app.UseRouting();
    
        app.MapBlazorHub();
        app.MapFallbackToPage("/_Host");
    
        app.Run();
    
            

    Now you can open the \Pages\Index.razor file and paste the following code:

        @page "/"
        @using CrossPlatformBlazor.Data
        
        @inject WeatherForecastService ForecastService
        
        <h1>Weather forecast</h1>
        
        <p>This component demonstrates fetching data from the server.</p>
        
        @if (forecasts == null)
        {
          <p><em>Loading...</em></p>
        }
        else
        {
          <Table Selection="true" SortMode="TableSortMode.One" class="table">
            <table>
              <thead>
                <tr>
                  <th>Date</th>
                  <th>Temp. (C)</th>
                  <th>Temp. (F)</th>
                  <th>Summary</th>
                </tr>
              </thead>
              <tbody>
                @foreach (var forecast in forecasts)
                {
                  <tr>
                    <td>@forecast.Date.ToShortDateString()</td>
                    <td>@forecast.TemperatureC</td>
                    <td>@forecast.TemperatureF</td>
                    <td>@forecast.Summary</td>
                  </tr>
                }
              </tbody>
            </table>
          </Table>
        }
        
        @code {
          private WeatherForecast[] forecasts;
        
          protected override async Task OnInitializedAsync()
          {
            forecasts = await ForecastService.GetForecastAsync(DateTime.Now);
          }
        }
          

    We are ready with the web part of our application. If you run the project you should see the following result:

    Blazor Server Result

    Windows Forms Blazor

    The next step is to add a new Windows Forms App to the solution. We will name it WinFormsBlazor.

    Create WinForms App

    Add the Smart.Blazor and Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.WebView.WindowsForms NuGet packages to the project.

    WinForms NuGet Packages
    After that add a wwwroot folder which should contain an index.html file and a css folder.
    You can copy the css folder from CrossPlatformBlazor project's wwwroot folder and the index.html file should look like this:

        <!DOCTYPE html>
        <html>
    
        <head>
            <meta charset="utf-8" />
            <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />
            <title>Blazor WinForms app</title>
            <base href="/" />
            <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/bootstrap/bootstrap.min.css" />
            <link href="css/site.css" rel="stylesheet" />
            <link href="WinFormsBlazor.styles.css" rel="stylesheet" />
            <link href="_content/Smart.Blazor/css/smart.default.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    
        </head>
    
        <body>
    
            <div id="app"></div>
    
            <div id="blazor-error-ui">
                An unhandled error has occurred.
                <a href="" class="reload">Reload</a>
                <a class="dismiss">🗙</a>
            </div>
    
            <script src="_framework/blazor.webview.js"></script>
            <script src="_content/Smart.Blazor/js/smart.blazor.js"></script>
            <script src="_content/Smart.Blazor/js/smart.elements.js"></script>
        </body>
    
        </html>
            

    Blazor Class Library

    We will extract the code shared between the Blazor Desktop app and the Blazor Server app in a separate Razor Class Library that we will call BlazorClassLibrary.
    Create Razor Class Library
    Again, add Smart.Blazor NuGet package to the project.

    Then in the project file BlazorClassLibrary.csproj replace:

        <Nullable>enable</Nullable>
            
    with
        <AddRazorSupportForMvc>true</AddRazorSupportForMvc>
            
    and add:
        <ItemGroup>
            <FrameworkReference Include="Microsoft.AspNetCore.App" /> 
        </ItemGroup>
            
    Note, that you need to add a reference to the class library in the Blazor Server App and the Windows Forms App by right-clicking on them and choosing Add Project Refrence...
    Project References
    Now you can move Data, Pages, Shared and wwwroot folders and _Imports.razor and App.Razor files from CrossPlatformBlazor to BlazorClassLibrary.
    Moved Files
    Then you should fix the reference of ILogger inside \Pages\Error.cshtml.cs by adding:
        using Microsoft.Extensions.Logging;
            
    Inside _Imports.razor replace:
        @using CrossPlatformBlazor
        @using CrossPlatformBlazor.Shared
            
    with
        @using BlazorClassLibrary 
        @using BlazorClassLibrary.Shared
            
    Inside \Pages\_Layout.cshtml file you need to change the references of the css files by replacing:
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/bootstrap/bootstrap.min.css" />
        <link href="css/site.css" rel="stylesheet" />
            
    with
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="_content/BlazorClassLibrary/css/bootstrap/bootstrap.min.css" />
        <link href="_content/BlazorClassLibrary/css/site.css" rel="stylesheet" />
            
    And finally, inside \Pages\_Host.cshtml add:
        @using BlazorClassLibrary
            

    Final Configurations

    Lastly, in the WinFormsBlazor project you should open the Form1.cs file and paste this code:

        using BlazorClassLibrary;
        using CrossPlatformBlazor.Data;
        using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.WebView.WindowsForms;
        using Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection;
        using Smart.Blazor;
    
        namespace WinFormsBlazor
        {
            public partial class Form1 : System.Windows.Forms.Form
            {
                public Form1()
                {
                    var serviceCollection = new ServiceCollection();
                    serviceCollection.AddBlazorWebView();
                
                    serviceCollection.AddSingleton<WeatherForecastService>();
                
                    serviceCollection.AddSmart();
                
                    InitializeComponent();
                
                    blazorWebView1.HostPage = @"wwwroot\index.html";
                    blazorWebView1.Services = serviceCollection.BuildServiceProvider();
                    blazorWebView1.RootComponents.Add<App>("#app");
                }
            }
        }
            
    Then open also the Form1.Designer.cs file and paste the following code:
        namespace WinFormsBlazor
        {
            partial class Form1
            {

            }
        }
          
    The last thing you need to do is to open the WinFormsBlazor's project file WinFormsBlazor.csproj and change the first line to:
        <Project Sdk="Microsoft.NET.Sdk.Razor">
          
    and add the following lines:
        <ItemGroup>
          <Content Update="wwwroot\**">
            <CopyToOutputDirectory>PreserveNewest</CopyToOutputDirectory>
          </Content>
        </ItemGroup>
        
        <ItemGroup>
          <Content Update="wwwroot\css\site.css">
            <CopyToOutputDirectory>PreserveNewest</CopyToOutputDirectory>
            <ExcludeFromSingleFile>true</ExcludeFromSingleFile>
            <CopyToPublishDirectory>PreserveNewest</CopyToPublishDirectory>
          </Content>
        </ItemGroup>
          

    Now if you start both the CrossPlatformBlazor and WinFormsBlazor projects you should get the following result:

    Smart UI for Vue 3

    Vue 3 is faster, smaller, more maintainable and it's easier to target native.


    Composition API

    One of the most significant changes is that a new API that will allow for a function-based way of writing your component, inspired by React Hooks. It lets you encapsulate logic into "composition functions" and reuse that logic across component

    Other changes in Vue 3 compared to Vue 2


    Virtual DOM rewrite for better performance and improved TypeScript support
    Native portals – now called Teleport
    Fragments (virtual elements that won't be rendered in the DOM tree)
    More flexibility for global mounting
    Conditional suspending of component rendering

    Smart UI for Vue 3


    Smart UI for Vue 3 is available at: https://www.htmlelements.com/vue/.
    All components are fully available and tested for Vue 3 web development. API & Getting Started Docs for Vue 3 have been added to https://www.htmlelements.com/docs/

    Blazor Components coming soon

    Blazor UI Components



    A week ago, we released our jQWidgets Blazor UI components: https://blazor.jqwidgets.com/. Now, we plan to do the same for our Smart product line.

    What is Blazor?


    Blazor is a new UI framework that was included in .NET Core 3. Blazor server-side and WebAssembly are both now shipping as part of .NET Core 3.2.0. Conceptually, Blazor is more like Angular or React rather than ASP.NET MVC. It’s a component-based framework for building rich and interactive web applications. The main difference between Blazor and traditional JavaScript frameworks is that Blazor components are written entirely in C# and Razor. No JavaScript required! Web apps are composed of reusable web UI components implemented using C#, HTML, and CSS. Both client and server code is written in C#, allowing you to share code and libraries.

    Blazor has two models: Server and WebAssembly. The server model was shipped with .NET Core 3. At that time, WebAssembly was still in preview, but has now been fully released with Blazor 3.2. Both are now production ready. Code running in the browser executes in the same security sandbox as JavaScript frameworks. Blazor code executing on the server has the flexibility to do anything you would normally do on the server, such as connecting directly to a database.

    What is WebAssembly

    WebAssembly (abbreviated “Wasm”) is an instruction set designed to run on any host capable of interpreting those instructions, or compiling them to native machine code and executing them.
    Wasm is an instruction set that is formatted in a specific binary format. Any host (hardware or software) that adheres to this specification is therefore capable of reading binaries and executing them – either interpreted, or by compiling directly to machine language specific to the device.
    Wasm is akin to the common instruction set (Common Intermediate Language) that .NET source code compiles to. Just like .NET, Wasm can be generated from higher languages such as C#.

    Our new components will support both: Blazor WebAssembly hosting model and Blazor Server hosting model.

    Below is an image of a Smart.Button Blazor component.

    Blazor Button Component

    When is the first release of Smart UI for Blazor?

    Our plans are to release an early preview of Smart UI for Blazor by end of October and provide demos and documentation for most of the components, we currently have like DataGrid, Charting, Kanban, Table, CardView, etc. The installation would be through a NuGet package. Github repo for posting issues and feature request will also be available.
    For those of you who want to create Blazor applications with our components NOW, please refer to our help tutorial here: https://www.htmlelements.com/docs/blazor/

    Update 07-July-2021

    Smart.Blazor NUGET package is available. All Blazor demos are available here: https://www.htmlelements.com/blazor/

    Angular RxJS with DataGrid

    Reactive programming is an asynchronous programming paradigm concerned with data streams and the propagation of change. RxJS (Reactive Extensions for JavaScript) is a library for reactive programming using observables that makes it easier to compose asynchronous or callback-based code. In this blog post we will show how to use our Angular DataGrid component with RxJS.

    angular datagrid rxjs observable

    Observable creation functions

    RxJS offers a number of functions that can be used to create new observables. These functions can simplify the process of creating observables from things such as events, timers, promises, and so on. For example

    Using Smart.Grid with RxJS

    In order to use our DataGrid with Angular and RxJS, you will need to do the following: 1. Create a new Angular project. 2. Install smart-webcomponents-angular vie npm install smart-webcomponents-angular or ng add smart-webcomponents-angular 3. Import the Smart.Grid module in app.module.ts

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { GridModule } from 'smart-webcomponents-angular/grid';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
    import { HttpClientModule } from '@angular/common/http';
    @NgModule({
        declarations: [ AppComponent ],
        imports: [ BrowserModule, FormsModule, GridModule, HttpClientModule ],
        bootstrap: [ AppComponent ],
    	entryComponents: [ AppComponent ]
    })
    export class AppModule { }
    
    4. Edit app.component.ts

    import { Component, ViewChild, AfterViewInit, ViewEncapsulation } from '@angular/core';
    import { GridComponent, GridColumn, DataAdapter, Smart } from 'smart-webcomponents-angular/grid';
    import { GetData } from './data'
    import { Observable, from  } from 'rxjs';
    @Component({
        selector: 'app-root',
        templateUrl: './app.component.html',
        styleUrls: ['app.component.css'],
        encapsulation: ViewEncapsulation.None
    })
    export class AppComponent implements AfterViewInit {
    	@ViewChild("grid", { read: GridComponent, static: false }) grid: GridComponent;
        // setup Datagrid's price column template.
        changeTemplate(formatObject: any) {
            const value: number = formatObject.value, opacity: number = Math.abs(value) / 100;
            if (value < 0) {
                formatObject.cell.background = `rgba(229, 57, 53, ${opacity})`;
            }
            else if (value > 0) {
                formatObject.cell.background = `rgba(67, 160, 71, ${opacity})`;
            }
            formatObject.template = value + '%';
        }
    	// setup Datagrid appearance.
    	appearance = {
            alternationCount: 2,
            showColumnLines: false,
            showColumnHeaderLines: false
        };
    	// setup Datagrid columns resize.
        behavior = { columnResizeMode: 'growAndShrink' };
        // setup Datagrid data source.
        dataSource = new window.Smart.DataAdapter({
            dataSource: [],
            dataFields: [
                'commodity: string',
                'price: number',
                'priceChange: number',
                'day: number',
                'week: number',
                'month: number',
                'year: number',
                'date: date'
            ]
        });
    	// setup Datagrid columns.
        columns = [
            { label: 'Commodity', dataField: 'commodity' },
            {
                label: 'Price', dataField: 'price', align: 'left', cellsAlign: 'left', template: function (formatObject: any) {
                    const value: number = formatObject.value.toFixed(2);
    				const priceChange: number = (this as any).grid.dataSource[formatObject.row.index].priceChange;
      			    if (priceChange === 0) {

    DataGrid Validation Coming soon

    DataGrid Data Validation


    The next version will include a much requested feature - Data Validation for the DataGrid component. The DataGrid control will allow you to perform validation at both the cell and row level. With cell-level validation, you validate individual properties of a bound data object when a user updates a value. With row-level validation, you validate entire data objects when a user commits changes to a row. You can also provide customized visual feedback for validation errors, or use the default visual feedback that the DataGrid control provides. The available set of validation rules are: 'min', 'max', 'minLength', 'maxLength', 'minDate', 'maxDate', 'null', 'email', 'required', 'requiredTrue' and 'pattern'.

    Shadow DOM Support with Smart UI 7.7.1

    What is Shadow DOM?


    The shadow DOM is an encapsulated version of the DOM. This allows authors to effectively isolate DOM fragments from one another, including anything that could be used as a CSS selector and the styles associated with them. Generally, any content inside of the document’s scope is referred to as the light DOM, and anything inside a shadow root is referred to as the shadow DOM.

    How to use Shadow DOM with Smart Web Components?


    The new version(7.7.1) of our library adds complete Shadow DOM support for all web components. To use the components with Shadow Dom enabled, you need to refer the "source/components" folder. When you use these components, you no longer have to add a reference to the "smart.default.css" file as all required styles by the component are included in its file.

    Example: https://www.htmlelements.com/demos/grid/shadow-dom/

    We added some useful API for importing Styles into the Shadow DOM. Each Web component has a new "addStyle" method which accepts a CSS string. There is also a "style-url" attribute. When you set that attribute during initialization time, the referred CSS file will be included into the Shadow DOM of your component.

    Why should I use Shadow DOM?

    Benefits of using Shadow DOM are CSS scoping, DOM encapsulation and composition. The web components will be isolated by the other parts of your application and there will be no CSS conflicts.

    Reactive Form Web Component

    Reactive Form

    A new Reactive Form will arrive in Smart UI 7.7.0. It will have two types of initialization. Reactive forms use an explicit and immutable approach to managing the state of a form at a given point in time. Each change to the form state returns a new state, which maintains the integrity of the model between changes. Reactive forms are built around observable streams, where form inputs and values are provided as streams of input values, which can be accessed synchronously. Reactive forms also provide a straightforward path to testing because you are assured that your data is consistent and predictable when requested. Any consumers of the streams have access to manipulate that data safely. The purpose of our new Form component is to provide you an awesome and modern looking Form component, which is easy customizable and will help you to deliver better and professional looking web Forms.

    Create a Form from HTML Template

    It will be possible to create a new Smart.Form from an existing HTML Form component and will add validation, AJAX submit, control states such as: 'dirty', 'touched', 'pristine', 'valid', 'invalid'.
    Example:
      const form = new Smart.Form('#profileForm', {
            firstName: ['', {
                validationRules: [
                   { type: 'required', message: 'First Name is required' },
                   { type: 'stringLength', min: 2, message: 'First Name requires minimum 2 characters' }
                ]
            }],
            lastName: ['', {
              validationRules: [{ type: 'required', message: 'Last Name is required' }]
            }
            ],
            address: new Smart.FormGroup({
              street: ['', {
                validationRules: [
                    { type: 'required', message: 'Street is required' }
                ]
              }
              ],
              city: [''],
              state: [''],
              zip: ['']
            })
          });
    

    Reactive Form UI

    Create a Form from JSON


    The Form will be created dynamically from JSON object where we specify each Form Control and Form Group. Example:
     const form = new Smart.Form('#profileForm', {
    			controls: [{
    				controlType: 'group',
    				columns: 2,
    				label: 'Employee',
    				dataField: 'employee',
    				labelPosition: 'left',
    				controls: [
    					{
    						label: 'Photo',
    						template: '<div style=" overflow: hidden;"><img width="125" src="../../images/people/andrew.png"/></div>',
    						controlType: 'template'
    					},

    DataGrid Grouping Panel, Row and Column Reorder

    The next release of Smart will include awesome new DataGrid features - Group Panel, Row and Column Reorder.

    Grouping DataGrid data with Grouping panel


    Data in DataGrid can be grouped by one column or by several. When a column is used for grouping, it is added to the group panel. By default, the group panel is hidden. To make it visible, we added a boolean property. With the grouping panel, you can drag a column header to group by it and you can also sort by that column by clicking on it. To remove the DataGrid grouping, all you need to do is to drag a column from the grouping panel and drop it into the Grid.

    DataGrid Row Reorder

    Row Reorder feature adds the ability for rows in a DataGrid to be reordered through user interaction with the table (click and drag / touch and drag). This feature will be turned on by using a boolean property, called "allowRowReorder". Each row will have a property called "allowReorder" which will allow you to disable the feature for a specific datagrid row.

This feature will be turned on by using a boolean property, called "allowColumnReorder".

    Do you like React? Smart UI for React is coming soon

    React is one of the most popular Javascript libraries. We are working hard on releasing Smart UI for React. Smart UI for React will be a collection of React Components, which you can use to build feature rich, native React apps. These React components are built for business applications and include features such as Localization, Accessibility and Right-to-left layouts support.

    Typescript Web Components

    Typescript Web Components



    Typescript support comes with the next version of Smart Web Components. We are super excited about this. We will expose Interfaces, Types and Classes for all our stuff. Each API member will include descriptions, which will help you to use our product and see the intellisense suggestions by Visual Studio Code, Visual Studio and other IDEs with such support.

    Grid Typescript Init

    This sample shows how to create basic Grid using TypeScript

    import {Grid, GridColumn, DataAdapter, Smart} from "../typescript/smart.elements";
     window.onload = function () {
       const grid: Grid = <Grid>document.createElement("smart-grid");
       grid.columns = <GridColumn[]>[
         {label: "First Name", dataField: "firstName"},
         {label: "Last Name", dataField: "lastName"}
       ]
       const adapter = new Smart.DataAdapter( {
         dataSource: [
           {firstName: "Name", lastName: "Last Name"},
           {firstName: "Name 2", lastName: "Last Name 2"},
           {firstName: "Name 3", lastName: "Last Name 3"},
           {firstName: "Name 4", lastName: "Last Name 4"},
           {firstName: "Name 5", lastName: "Last Name 5"}
         ],
         dataFields: [
           'firstName: string',
           'lastName: string'
         ]
       }) as DataAdapter;
       grid.dataSource = adapter;
       document.body.appendChild<Grid>(grid);

    Microsoft Chromium Edge and Smart Web Components

    Microsoft Chromium-based Edge



    Microsoft today released the first stable version of its new Chromium-based Edge browser, just over a year after it first announced that it would stop developing its own browser engine and go with what has become the industry standard.



    The new Microsoft Edge provides best in class compatibility with extensions and web sites, with great support for the latest rendering capabilities, modern web applications, and powerful developer tools across all supported platforms.

    Faster and clean-looking

    One of the first things you’ll notice about the new Edge is just how it looks, and how fast web sites load in it. Even when using 15 or more tabs, we didn’t find it slow down.

    What's important for your development with Smart Web Components

    We were regularly testing all releases of the new Edge with our product so on our end there are no surprises.

    The first important thing that we will point out is that Smart Web Components are fully compatible with the new Microsoft Edge browser.

    The second thing is that you will no longer need to include the webcomponents.js polyfill with Edge. More information about the Web Components support table: https://caniuse.com/#search=web%20components

    Blazor and Web Components

    The Blazor framework enables you to build flexible and fast web applications with C# instead of JavaScript. The framework uses WebAssembly-based .NET runtime (client-side Blazor) and server-side ASP.NET Core (server-side Blazor). A Blazor app can invoke JavaScript functions from .NET and .NET methods from JavaScript code.

    To call into JavaScript from .NET, use the IJSRuntime abstraction. The InvokeAsync method takes an identifier for the JavaScript

    As it is possible to use Javascript with Blazor, it is easy to use Web Components with Blazor, too. The following tutorial will show you how to add our Grid Web Component and data bind it to a WeatherForecast web service within a Blazor web application: https://www.htmlelements.com/docs/blazor/

    After following the steps in the tutorial you will have the following output:

    Constructable Stylesheets

    Constructable Stylesheets make it possible to create stylesheets imperatively by invoking the CSSStyleSheet() constructor. The CSSStyleSheet object has two new methods that make it safer to add and update stylesheet. These methods are replace and replaceSync. replace() returns a Promise that resolves once any external references (@imports) are loaded, whereas replaceSync() doesn’t allow external references at all.

    Shadow DOM and Constructed StyleSheets

    Constructable StyleSheets are very useful, when we use Shadow DOM. There is a new property called adoptedStyleSheets, which is available on Shadow Roots and Documents. This allows us to apply the styles defined by a CSSStyleSheet to a given DOM subtree. To do so, we set the property to an array of one or more stylesheets to apply to that element.

    Example:

    // Create our shared stylesheet:
    const sheet = new CSSStyleSheet();
    sheet.replaceSync('a { color: red; }');
    // Apply the stylesheet to a document:
    document.adoptedStyleSheets = [sheet];
    // Apply the stylesheet to a Shadow Root:
    const node = document.createElement('div');
    const shadow = node.attachShadow({ mode: 'open' });
    shadow.adoptedStyleSheets = [sheet];
    

    With Constructable StyleSheets, web application developers now have an explicit solution for creating CSS StyleSheets and applying them to Shadow DOM trees.
    The source code below, shows how to import a 'styles.css' file into the Grid's ShadowDOM.
    const sheet = new CSSStyleSheet();
    // replace all styles, allowing external resources:
    sheet.replace('@import url("styles.css")')
      .then(sheet => {
    	console.log('Styles loaded successfully');
      })
      .catch(err => {
    	console.error('Failed to load:', err);
      });
    grid.shadowRoot.adoptedStyleSheets = [sheet];

    Advanced Data Visualization with Grid Charting

    Smart.Chart integration with Smart.Grid

    The next version of Smart Web Components will bring integrated charting functionality that allows users to chart directly inside the Grid Web Component. We are happy to announce that Smart Grid is the First Enterprise Grid with such feature available.

    The charting is implemented through our Smart.Chart Web Component and is using the grid data source. Charts can be exported to .PDF, .PNG of .JPEG.

    There are two approaches to create a Chart.

    • Create a Chart by using the Grid's selection. Smart.Grid supports several selection modes - selection by cells like in Spreadsheets, columns and rows selection.
    • Create a Chart by using the Grid and Chart API. This solution allows us to use the full data set.

    Smart.Chart

    The charting used in the Grid and Chart integration is our own-made Smart.Chart component. Smart.Chart is a Web Component built through the Smart Framework and is based on the broadly used jQWidgets Charting solution. It does not have any third-party dependencies. It is created by our own Team as all other UI components in our package.

    Grid and Chart Integration

    Chart Toolbar

    The Toolbar with Charting options is displayed in the Grid header. By clicking a Chart Type, the Grid will create it.

    To create Charts, users will need to import the Smart.Grid, Smart.Chart and Smart.Window modules and enable the Charting in the Grid.

    Below is displayed a Chart created through selection by dragging or by keyboard navigation a Cells Range of Numeric values. Area Chart by Grid Selection

    Charts are displayed in our Smart.Window component. You can resize it, maximize it, move it, change its header position, stick it to screen edge, minimize it or just collapse it. Smart.Window is designed to be the most feature-complete Dialog component. It can be either modal or non-modal.

    Below is displayed a Bar Chart created by selecting multiple rows.

    Bar Chart by Grid Selection

    Below is displayed a Pie Chart created by selecting multiple columns.

    Pie Chart by Grid Selection

    Below is displayed a Column Chart by cells selection.

    Column Chart by Grid Selection

    Charts Settings

    As our Charting solution is evolving for the last 10 years, it has quite a lot of settings and Chart types like Financial Charts, Zooming, Spider Charts, etc. You may learn more about our Charting on our demos and documentation pages.
