Check out everything that's new in the first release of Kendo UI for Vue, including an all-new native data grid.
You asked for and we delivered - I’m proud to announce that with the R1 2019 release we have delivered a native data grid for Vue.js! This means no jQuery dependencies and an even deeper integration with the Vue. While we have delivered other features across the wrapped components (more on that in the Kendo UI blog post), in this blog post I want to focus on the this brand new component.
The Grid at a Glance
So far the folks that have been working with Kendo UI with Vue.js have worked with our wrapped library where the Grid relies on the underlying DataSource framework item in order to bind data to itself. While it has worked for many of you, there has been a lot of feedback coming in around creating something that is native for Vue.js without any additional layers.
This was our main goal when building this new component: ensure that we do things the Vue.js way and build something that all Vue developers will find intuitive and easy to drop in to their applications. Just take a look at the following code snippet that showcases how to bind the grid to local data
As you can see, all we really need to do is pass in data in to the
data-items property and define the columns within our Vue model and we’re off to the races!
Speaking of features, what’s really exciting about this release is that we already have a huge set of them available with this release! There’s almost too much to cover in a single blog post, but here’s a quick highlight of features:
- Column Resizing and Reordering
- Multi-column headers
- Virtual Scrolling
- Custom Rendering
- Globalization / Localization
- Export to PDF and Excel
To see this all working and to get even deeper in to the functionality you should check out our online demos!
What’s to Come
This is only the beginning for this new Grid component. We have additional functionality planned, including adding in frozen columns, column menu and filter menus.
