How to Create Ordered List

Because by default only the item's label is shown, in order to display the order number, you need to create a template. The item template function already supports the index parameter, which you can use to show the order number.

In this example, the item template is simple. It uses the standard div element and two span elements. The first span element shows the order number, while the second one the item label.

Currently ReactJS doesn't have full support for Web Components. Mainly because of the way data is passed to the component via attributes and their own synthetic event system. For this reason, you can use available wrappers located under /integralui/wrappers directory, which are ReactJS components that provide all public API from specific IntegralUI component.

The index starts from 0, for the first item in the list.

In addition, using CSS you can custom classes and change the appearance of the item content. In this case, the order number appears in green color with italic font style.

You only need to use the item template, which provides the item index in the list and show it by using standard HTML elements. In addition, with CSS you can customize the appearance of the order number or other parts of the item content.
