Essential Studio for Blazor Release Notes

v20.2.36
June 30, 2022

Common

Features

  • Added additional support for referring component-wise Blazor scripts externally in the application end. Each component has only one script reference and no need to refer it’s dependent component scripts (handled internally to load their dependency scripts automatically) in the application end. Blazor component-wise scripts are also now available in CDN with this release.

    You can add a component script reference in one of the following ways, for example, to use the SfTextBox component script.

    Reference scripts from NuGet

    From Syncfusion.Blazor NuGet package:

      <script  src="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor/scripts/sf-textbox.min.js"  type="text/javascript"></script>

    From individual NuGet package:

      <script  src="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Inputs/scripts/sf-textbox.min.js"  type="text/javascript"></script>

    Reference scripts from CDN

      <script  src="https://cdn.syncfusion.com/blazor/20.2.36/sf-textbox.min.js"  type="text/javascript"></script>
  • Improved performance in all blazor components by optimizing message length of SignalR calls.

  • Provided support to enable or disable the animation globally by using Animation property. If the Animation value is GlobalAnimationMode.Enable, animation is enabled; If the Animation value is GlobalAnimationMode.Disable, animation is disabled. Default value of Animation is GlobalAnimationMode.Default.

       services.AddSyncfusionBlazor(options =>
       {
           options.Animation = GlobalAnimationMode.Disable;
       });
