Getting started

Installation

To get started you have to install the following dependency to your project: @pnp/spfx-controls-react.

Enter the following command to install the dependency to your project:

npm install @pnp/spfx-controls-react --save --save-exact

Configuration

Note

Since v1.4.0 the localized resource path will automatically be configured during the dependency installing.

Once the package is installed, you will have to configure the resource file of the property controls to be used in your project. You can do this by opening the config/config.json and adding the following line to the localizedResources property:

"ControlStrings": "node_modules/@pnp/spfx-controls-react/lib/loc/{locale}.js"

Telemetry

All controls gather telemetry to verify the usage. Only the name of the control and related data gets captured.

More information about the service that we are using for this can be found here: PnP Telemetry Proxy.

Since version 1.17.0 it is possible to opt-out of the telemetry by adding the following code to your web part:

import PnPTelemetry from "@pnp/telemetry-js";
...
const telemetry = PnPTelemetry.getInstance();
telemetry.optOut();
