The R2 2021 release of Kendo UI for Vue is here, bringing six new native UI components for Vue, including the Button, Floating Action Button and Upload components.
The R2 2021 release of Kendo UI for Vue is here and with it comes a big list of new native UI components for Vue. Let’s dive straight in to see what’s new in Kendo UI for Vue with R2 2021.
Every application needs a button at some point—it’s the main way we get users to perform an action in our Vue applications. With R2 2021, Kendo UI for Vue added a new native Button component, which can include just text, just icons or both. Of course, the look and feel of the Vue Button is completely customizable as well.

Going a step further from the Vue Button, the new Kendo UI for Vue ButtonGroup component can help manage a set of buttons belonging to a single group. This can help you maintain items such as controlling currently toggled buttons or ensuring that only one button out of a group gets interacted with.
Here’s a direct link to the new native Kendo UI for Vue ButtonGroup component docs & demos.
Continuing the trend of adding button elements with R2 2021, Kendo UI for Vue also is introducing the Vue Floating Action Button. Found in desktop and mobile applications alike, the Vue Floating Action Button lets users execute a single action, usually something like compose a new email or add a new entry. There’s also the ability to instead create a “Speed Dial” which expands a list of action items whenever the main Floating Action Button element is interacted with.
To see how you can add this new component to your Vue apps today, check out the Kendo UI for Vue Floating Action Button demos.
The new Vue Chip component is a great UI component to round out the native Vue UI element list. Chips are very flexible and can be styled to fit any application’s design requirements and can include a mix of text and even icons in their content.
Here’s a quick link to the new Kendo UI for Vue Chip component demos.
Going hand-in-hand with the new Vue Chip component, the Kendo UI for Vue ChipList can help manage a collection of chips whenever there is need for more than a single chip. This can help manage aspects like the current selection of chips or manipulating the list of chips by adding and removing items.
For more information, you can refer to the Kendo UI for Vue ChipList demos.
The last new Vue UI component for R2 2021 is the Kendo UI for Vue Upload component. This is one of the most popular UI components across the various Kendo UI libraries, so it’s very exciting to be able to chat about the component in Kendo UI for Vue! The Upload component can be added into any existing Vue application and lets users upload files through an intuitive user experience.

Ensuring that Kendo UI for Vue has the most feature-rich Data Grid out there, with R2 2021 the Vue Data Grid added the infinite scrolling feature. With this feature enabled, the Vue data table loads additional data items whenever the user reaches the end of the current data set, giving the illusion that the content can be scrolled infinitely.
Check out the Scroll Modes section of our docs to see how you can add infinite scrolling to your Vue Data Grids.
And last but not least, we revamped one of the favorite places that developers love hanging out—the Telerik and Kendo UI Community Forums. Check out the complete story of why and what in the dedicated blog post.
