The final version of our ASP.NET MVC collection built on Essential JS 2 adds 14 new controls and a web-based theme studio.
The following components have been added to Essential JS 2 for ASP.NET MVC:
Avatars are icons or figures that represent a particular person. They are developed as pure CSS components and support popular media formats like images, SVG, font-icons, and letters. Avatars created with the control come in two different shapes, normal or circle.
The badge is a notification component developed in pure CSS that can be used to alert users about new or unread messages, notifications, and additional information about content. It supports different shapes such as normal, circle, pill, notification, and dot.
The button group is a pure CSS component that groups a series of buttons together vertically or horizontally. It supports single and multiple selection behaviors.
The color picker lets users pick a color either by selecting color values or by adjusting them. It supports RGB (red, green, and blue), HSV (hue, saturation, and value), and hex color codes.
The Essential JS 2 diagram component is used to build visual representations of information. It can also be used to create diagrams like flow charts, organizational charts, mind maps, and BPMN diagrams either through code or a visual interface.
The document editor component is used to create, edit, view, and print Word documents in web applications. All the user interaction and editing operations runs purely in the client-side to provide a fast and intuitive experience to end users.
The heat map control is used to visualize two-dimensional data in which the values are represented in a color gradient or as fixed colors.
The pivot grid is a multidimensional data visualization component built on top of relational data sources. The pivot report can be managed dynamically at runtime along with other capabilities like aggregation, filtering, and sorting based on fields and values.
The range navigator provides an intuitive interface for selecting a smaller range from a larger collection. It is commonly used in financial dashboards to filter a date range for which data needs to be visualized. This control easily combines with other controls such as the chart, data grid, and others to create rich and powerful dashboards.
The rich text editor component is a WYSIWYG editor that provides the best user experience for creating and updating rich text content. It supports both HTML and Markdown editing and provides standard toolbar commands.

A sparkline is a very small chart, typically drawn without axes or coordinates, that conveys information to the user in a small space.
The switch component lets users toggle between checked and unchecked states.
A toast is a small container in which users can show single or multiple informative lines with actions. It comes with predefined colors and supports template customization for notifications to appear as desired based on the application scenario.
The tree map is used to visualize hierarchical data in the form of nested rectangles. The area of each item is calculated based on its corresponding numeric value.
