  • You can add the client-side resources through CDN or from NuGet package in the HEAD element of the ~/wwwroot/index.html page.

<head>
    <link href="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes/bootstrap4.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <!-- <link href="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/blazor//styles/.css" rel="stylesheet" /> -->
</head>

For Internet Explorer 11 kindly refer the polyfills. Refer the documentation for more information.

Adding component package to the application

Open ~/_Imports.razor file and import the Syncfusion.Blazor.Calendars package.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Calendars

Add SyncfusionBlazor service in Program.cs

Open the Program.cs file and add services required by Syncfusion components using services.AddSyncfusionBlazor() method.

using Syncfusion.Blazor;

namespace BlazorApplication
{
    public class Program
    {
        public static async Task Main(string[] args)
        {
            ....
            ....
            builder.Services.AddSyncfusionBlazor();
            await builder.Build().RunAsync();
