Integration with Ionic

This guide will help you integrate Flexmonster with the Ionic framework, which allows creating cross-platform mobile applications.

Prerequisites

To run a sample application, you will need Node.js and npm. Get them here if they are not already installed on your machine.

Now, choose one of the following options:

Run a sample project from GitHub

Follow the steps below to run a sample application demonstrating Flexmonster integration with either Ionic 5 and React, or Ionic 3 and Angular.

Step 1. Download or clone the sample project

Download the .zip archive with the sample project or clone it with the following commands:

Ionic React project

git clone https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-ionic-react
cd pivot-ionic-react

Ionic Angular project

git clone https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-ionic
cd pivot-ionic

Step 2. Install npm packages

Install the npm packages described in the package.json file with the following command:

npm install

Step 3. Run the project

Run the sample application with the following command:

npm run start

Integrate Flexmonster into an Ionic application

The steps to embed Flexmonster into an application vary depending on the type of Ionic application.

Ionic React project

Flexmonster can be integrated into an Ionic React application in the same way it is integrated into a React and Typescript application. See integration with React+Typescript for details.

To create a new Ionic React application, refer to the Ionic documentation.

Ionic Angular project

Flexmonster can be integrated into an Ionic Angular application in the same way it is integrated into an Angular application. See integration with Angular for details.

To create a new Ionic Angular application, refer to the Ionic documentation.

Flexmonster attributes

The usage of Flexmonster attributes depends on the type of Ionic application.

Ionic React project

In an Ionic React application, the FlexmonsterReact.Pivot component’s usage is the same as it is in React.

All attributes are equivalent to those passed to the new Flexmonster() API call. Check out the full list of available attributes.

Here is an example demonstrating how different attributes can be specified:

<FlexmonsterReact.Pivot 
toolbar = {true}
report = "https://cdn.flexmonster.com/reports/report.json"
width = "100%"
reportcomplete = {this.reportCompleteHandler}
/>

In the above example, notice this line:

reportcomplete = {this.reportCompleteHandler}

Here, we add a reportCompleteHandler to the reportcomplete event. Event handlers can be specified for all available Flexmonster events. Here is the full list of Flexmonster events.

Ionic Angular project

In an Ionic Angular application, the fm-pivot directive’s usage is the same as in Angular: the name of each directive’s attribute is surrounded by square brackets, and each attribute’s value can be of any type, including an Angular variable.

To use a string value, enclose it by single quotes within the double quotes (e.g., [report]="'https://cdn.flexmonster.com/reports/report.json'").

All attributes are equivalent to those passed to the new Flexmonster() API call. Check out the full list of available attributes.

Here is an example demonstrating how different attributes can be specified:

<fm-pivot
[toolbar]="true"
   [width]="'100%'"
   [height]="500"
   [report]="'https://cdn.flexmonster.com/reports/report.json'"
   (reportcomplete)="onReportComplete()">
   Flexmonster will appear here
</fm-pivot>

In the above example, notice the following line:

(reportcomplete)="onReportComplete()"

Here, we add the onReportComplete handler to the reportcomplete event. In Angular, events are surrounded by round brackets instead of square brackets. Here is the full list of Flexmonster events.
