Essential JS 2

Sneak Peek at 2020 Volume 3: Essential JS 2

The Syncfusion Essential JS 2 (JavaScript) UI control library is the only suite you will ever need to build an application since it contains over 65 high-performance, lightweight, modular, and responsive UI components in a single package.

In this blog, I am going to give you a quick overview of the new features we have planned for Essential JS 2 in the upcoming 2020 Volume 3 release. Let’s see them with a bird’s-eye view!

Kanban moves from preview to production-ready

The Kanban component has been developed to meet industrial standards. It is now a production-ready component.

Feature enhancements

The Essential JS 2 2020 Volume 3 release delivers the following exciting and useful features.


The JavaScript Grid or DataGrid control will have the following new feature.

Lazy loading with grouping

This feature will allow users to use server-side grouping to render records in a collapsed state while binding a large volume of data. The grouped items with n levels of data will be loaded on demand when the corresponding group is expanded.

Pivot Table

The Pivot Table will be equipped with the following features.

Server-side pivot engine

We will introduce a server-side pivot engine to the Pivot Table where all the pivot calculations, filtering, sorting, and other operations can be done. Then, the information to be displayed in the view port will be passed to the client side. This will transfer only the required data source to a browser. With this, we can reduce the network traffic and increase the rendering performance of the Pivot Table, especially when handling millions of data points. It works best when virtual scrolling is enabled. The engine will support different kinds of data sources such as JSON, CSV, DataTable, and collections.

Inline editing

An option to directly edit the value in a cell without the use of an external edit dialog will be included in the Pivot Table. It is applicable if and only if the value of the cell is based on a single item raw data.

Material-style filled appearance

This feature will allow you to render the MultiSelect Dropdown control in a filled style, which is the latest Material design.
