The Syncfusion Blazor conversion is an add-in for Visual Studio Code that converts an existing Blazor application into a Syncfusion Blazor Web Application by adding the required NuGet packages and themes.

The Syncfusion Blazor Web Application Project Conversion utility is available from v17.4.0.39.

The steps below assist you to using the Syncfusion Project conversion in your existing Blazor Web Application:

  1. Open an existing Blazor Web Application or create a new Microsoft Blazor Web Application in Visual Studio Code.

  2. Select Convert to Syncfusion Blazor Application… from the context menu when you right-click on the Project file from Explorer (Workspace). Refer the screenshot below.
