    Using the Shape element in SpreadJS with React, you can quickly embed and render various shapes including geometric figures like square, circle, rectangle, triangle, pentagon, hexagon, octagon etc. in the worksheets without any hassle.

    1. Create a React Project

      Open the Command Prompt window and type the following commands:

      npm install -g create-react-app
      create-react-app quick-start
      cd quick-start
      npm start

      After you finish, the react project will be created at the specified location in the directory. For more information on how to create a React project, refer to https://reactjs.org/docs/create-a-new-react-app.html.

    2. Install SpreadJS React module in project

      Next, you need to install @grapecity/spread-sheets-react in your project using the following command:

      npm install @grapecity/spread-sheets-react
    3. Import SpreadJS CSS into index.js file

      Next, you need to import the SpreadJS CSS in your index.js file using the following code:

      import '@grapecity/spread-sheets/styles/gc.spread.sheets.excel2013white.css';
    4. Install Shapes React Module in the Project

      Next, you need to install the shapes module in your project using the following command:

      npm install @grapecity/spread-sheets-shapes
    5. Use Shapes in React Application

      Now, you can modify the App.js file as per your requirements. Changes will be reflected when the browser window is refreshed. As an example, you can use the sample code given below:

      This example shows how to use shapes in a React Application.

      Copy Code

      import React from 'react';
      import './App.css';
      import GC from '@grapecity/spread-sheets';
      import { SpreadSheets, Worksheet } from '@grapecity/spread-sheets-react';

      // Import Shapes module
      import '@grapecity/spread-sheets-shapes';

      var SpreadJSKey = "xxx";
      GC.Spread.Sheets.LicenseKey = SpreadJSKey;

      class App extends React.Component


              this.hostStyle =
                      width: '1100px',
                      height: '800px'

      // Handling workbook initialized event
      workbookInit = (spread) =>

      spread: spread

      // Fetching sheet
      let sheetShape = spread.getSheet(0);

      // Setting Sheetname

      // Add built-in shape "donut"
      var donutShape = sheetShape.shapes.add('autoShape', GC.Spread.Sheets.Shapes.AutoShapeType.donut, 50, 50, 150, 150);

      // Adding text to built-in shape "donut"
      donutShape.text("Donut Shape");

      // Adding style to built-in shape "donut"
      var shapeStyle = donutShape.style();
      shapeStyle.textEffect.color = "Red";
      shapeStyle.textEffect.font = "18px Arial";
      shapeStyle.textFrame.hAlign = GC.Spread.Sheets.HorizontalAlign.center;
      shapeStyle.textFrame.vAlign = GC.Spread.Sheets.VerticalAlign.center;



      return (
      <SpreadSheets backColor={this.spreadBackColor} hostStyle={this.hostStyle} workbookInitialized={this.workbookInit}>

      export default App;
