Easily Integrate Blazor Components into Any SPA Framework as Custom Elements

With the release of .NET 7, the Blazor framework enables developers to integrate Razor components into popular JavaScript SPA frameworks such as Angular and React. The key advantage of using Blazor custom elements is their ability to increase reusability while creating dynamic and engaging web applications.

In this blog, we will explore how to create custom elements from Blazor Razor components and learn how they can be integrated into an Angular application.

Creating a Blazor Server application

Let’s create a Blazor Server application with the Blazor Server App Empty template by following the guidelines to build your first Blazor app.

The Blazor Server application will be created, as shown in the following screenshot.

Creating a Razor Component

1.We have created the Blazor Server application. Now, let’s create a new Razor component called CustomElements by right-clicking the Pages folder, clicking Add , and then selecting Razor Component.

2.Then, add the required HTML markup and C# code in the Razor component. I add the Blazor built-in component InputSelect and the Syncfusion Blazor Dropdown List component with SelectedGame defined as the parameter.

For more information on the Syncfusion Blazor Dropdown List, refer to this getting started documentation.


@using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.Forms
@using Syncfusion.Blazor.DropDowns

<h2>Blazor component</h2>

<div class="custom-elements">
    Selected Game: <b>@SelectedGame</b>

    <label>Blazor built-in component</label>

    <InputSelect @bind-Value="SelectedGame" style="width: 50%;">
        @foreach (var game in Games)
            <option value="@game">@game</option>

    <label>Syncfusion Blazor component</label>

    <SfDropDownList TItem="string" TValue="string" @bind-Value="@SelectedGame" DataSource="@Games">


@code {
    public string SelectedGame { get; set; } = "Badminton";

    public List<string> Games = new List<string>() { "Badminton", "Basketball", "Cricket", "Football", "Hockey" };

    label {
        display: block;
        font-weight: bold;
        padding: 15px 0px;
    .custom-elements {
        width: 500px;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Registering the Razor Component as a custom element

1.First, install the NuGet package Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.CustomElements, which is used for Blazor custom element configuration.

Install Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.CustomElements NuGet package

2.Register the CustomElements Razor component as a custom element with the tag name my-blazor-component in the Program.cs file. Refer to the following code.

using BlazorServerApp.Pages;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.Web;
using Syncfusion.Blazor;


builder.Services.AddServerSideBlazor(options =>

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

3.Now, we are ready with that part of the Blazor Server application. Run the application and note down the hosted URL link for the Angular application proxy configuration. The Blazor application will be launched in the URL https://localhost:7039. Created Blazor application

Creating an Angular application

Follow these steps to create an Angular application with the required configuration setup.

First, create a simple Angular application with the Angular CLI by following the steps described in this link.

Configuring the proxy to access the Blazor Server app

1.Create a file named proxy.conf.js in the Angular project’s src/folder and add the following configuration code.


const target = "https://localhost:7039/" // Blazor application hosted URL

const PROXY_CONFIG = [
    context: [,
    proxyTimeout: 3000,
    target: target,
    secure: false,
    headers: {
      Connection: 'Keep-Alive'
    context: [
    target: target,
    secure: false,
    ws: true,
    logLevel: "debug"

module.exports = PROXY_CONFIG;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2.Add the proxyConfig option to the serve target in the Angular CLI configuration. Refer to the following code.


"serve": {
  "builder": "@angular-devkit/build-angular:dev-server",
  "options": {
    "proxyConfig": "src/proxy.conf.js"
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Configuring the Angular app to use custom elements

Add the CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA to allow the Angular application to use our Blazor custom elements.


import { NgModule, CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
  schemas: [
export class AppModule { }
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Adding Blazor custom element

1.Add the following scripts and style dependencies for our Blazor custom element in the index.html file.


<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
    <link href="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes/bootstrap5.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script src="_framework/blazor.server.js"></script>
    <script src="_content/Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.CustomElements/Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.CustomElements.lib.module.js"></script>
    <script src="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Core/scripts/syncfusion-blazor.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2.Add the Blazor custom element in the Angular application using the tag with which we registered the custom element in the Blazor Server application. Here, we replace all the content with the following code in the app.component.html file.


<my-blazor-component selected-game="Football"></my-blazor-component>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Run the application

Let’s run the Angular project using the following command. Also, ensure the Blazor Server application is hosted in that runnable URL.

npm start
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You can see the demo of the runnable application in the following GIF image.
