What’s New in Syncfusion React UI Components


What’s New in Syncfusion React UI Components

2022 Volume 2 ensures that all our React components are compatible with React 18. Other improvements include multiple Bezier connector editing points in the Diagram control, and TreeGrid row drag and drop with virtualization.


React 18 support

Syncfusion React components are now compatible with React version 18. Check out our live React demos that have been upgraded to React 18.

License registration improvements

This feature allows the license key to be registered for the React platform by using the npx command. Follow these steps to register the license using the npx command:

  1. Install the Syncfusion packages from npm.

  2. Add the license key either in the environment variable SYNCFUSION_LICENSE or in the text file syncfusion-license.txt.

  3. Run the command npx syncfusion-license activate to register the license automatically.

Dart Sass support

Syncfusion EJ2 component Sass files are compiled using Dart Sass instead of node-sass. This change has been made since node-sass has been deprecated.

Production-ready components

The Carousel component has been developed to meet industry standards. It is now marked as production-ready for React.

Word Processor

Track changes - restriction type

This feature restricts users from accepting or rejecting tracked changes, while editing a Word document without any limitation.
