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

You can explore some useful features in the Blazor HeatMap component using the video below.

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 HeatMap and Themes NuGet in the App

To add Blazor HeatMap Chart 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.HeatMap and Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes. Alternatively, you can utilize the following package manager command to achieve the same.

Install-Package Syncfusion.Blazor.HeatMap -Version 26.1.35
Install-Package Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes -Version 26.1.35

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.HeatMap namespace.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor
@using Syncfusion.Blazor.HeatMap

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(sp => 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 HeatMap component

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

<SfHeatMap DataSource="@HeatMapData">
    <HeatMapTitleSettings Text="Sales Revenue per Employee (in 1000 US$)"></HeatMapTitleSettings>
    <HeatMapCellSettings ShowLabel="true" TileType="CellType.Rect"></HeatMapCellSettings>
</SfHeatMap>

@code{
    int[,] GetDefaultData()
    {
        int[,] dataSource = new int[,]
        {
            {52, 65, 67, 45, 37, 52},
            {68, 52, 63, 51, 30, 51},
            {7, 16, 47, 47, 88, 6},
            {66, 64, 46, 40, 47, 41},
            {14, 46, 97, 69, 69, 3},
            {54, 46, 61, 46, 40, 39}
        };
        return dataSource;
    }
    public object HeatMapData { get; set; }
    protected override void OnInitialized()
    {
        HeatMapData = GetDefaultData();
    }
}

*Press Ctrl+F5 (Windows) or +F5 (macOS) to launch the application. This will render the Syncfusion Blazor HeatMap Chart component in your default web browser.
