This section briefly explains about how to include Blazor Card component in your Blazor Server App and Blazor WebAssembly App using Visual Studio.

To get start quickly with Blazor Card component, you can check on this video or GitHub sample.

Prerequisites

Create a new Blazor App in Visual Studio

You can create a Blazor Server App or Blazor WebAssembly App using Visual Studio via Microsoft Templates or the Syncfusion Blazor Extension.

Install Syncfusion Blazor Cards and Themes NuGet in the App

To add Blazor Card component in the app, open the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio (Tools → NuGet Package Manager → Manage NuGet Packages for Solution), search and install Syncfusion.Blazor.Cards and Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes. Alternatively, you can utilize the following package manager command to achieve the same.

Install-Package Syncfusion.Blazor.Cards -Version 25.2.3
Install-Package Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes -Version 25.2.3

NOTE

Syncfusion Blazor components are available in nuget.org. Refer to NuGet packages topic for available NuGet packages list with component details.

Register Syncfusion Blazor Service

Open ~/_Imports.razor file and import the Syncfusion.Blazor and Syncfusion.Blazor.Cards namespace.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor
@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Cards

Now, register the Syncfusion Blazor Service in the ~/Program.cs file of your Blazor Server App or Blazor WebAssembly App.

using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.Web;
using Syncfusion.Blazor;

var builder = WebApplication.CreateBuilder(args);

// Add services to the container.
builder.Services.AddRazorPages();
builder.Services.AddServerSideBlazor();
builder.Services.AddSyncfusionBlazor();

var app = builder.Build();
....
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.Web;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.WebAssembly.Hosting;
using Syncfusion.Blazor;

var builder = WebAssemblyHostBuilder.CreateDefault(args);
builder.RootComponents.Add<App>("#app");
builder.RootComponents.Add<HeadOutlet>("head::after");

builder.Services.AddScoped(serviceProvider => new HttpClient { BaseAddress = new Uri(builder.HostEnvironment.BaseAddress) });

builder.Services.AddSyncfusionBlazor();
await builder.Build().RunAsync();
....

Add stylesheet and script resources

The theme stylesheet and script can be accessed from NuGet through Static Web Assets. Reference the stylesheet and script in the <head> of the main page as follows:

  • For .NET 6 Blazor Server app, include it in ~/Pages/_Layout.cshtml file.

  • For .NET 7 Blazor Server app, include it in the ~/Pages/_Host.cshtml file.

  • For Blazor WebAssembly app, include it in the ~/index.html file.

<head>
    ....
    <link href="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes/bootstrap5.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script src="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Core/scripts/syncfusion-blazor.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

NOTE

Check out the Blazor Themes topic to discover various methods (Static Web Assets, CDN, and CRG) for referencing themes in your Blazor application. Also, check out the Adding Script Reference topic to learn different approaches for adding script references in your Blazor application.

Add Blazor Card component

Add the Syncfusion Blazor Card component in the ~/Pages/Index.razor file.

<SfCard> Sample Card </SfCard>
  • Press Ctrl+F5 (Windows) or +F5 (macOS) to launch the application. This will render the Syncfusion Blazor Card component in your default web browser.

Add header and content

You can add the header by using CardHeader tag and add Title and SubTitle in that tag. You can also add the content by using CardContent tag.

<div class="control-section">
    <div class="row">
        <div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-6 col-lg-6 col-md-6">
            <SfCard>
                <CardHeader Title="Debunking Five Data Science Myths" SubTitle="By John Doe | Jan 20, 2018" />
                <CardContent Content="Tech evangelists are currently pounding their pulpits about all things AI, machine learning, analytics—anything that sounds like the future and probably involves lots of numbers. Many of these topics can be grouped under the intimidating term data science." />
            </SfCard>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>
