Barcodes Overview

The Barcodes enable the user to easily generate images that represent QR (Quick Response) codes and barcodes.

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates how to initialize the Barcode and QRCode.

<div id="vueapp" class="vue-app">
    <kendo-barcode :value="'Mascarpone'"
    <kendo-qrcode :value="'geo:42.65049,23.37925,100'"

new Vue({
    el: '#vueapp'


To initialize the Barcodes, either:

Initializing with Webpack

  1. Install Kendo UI and add a theme.

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-ui
    npm install --save @progress/kendo-theme-default
  2. Install the Kendo UI Barcodes package for Vue.

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-barcodes-vue-wrapper

    The package also exports the following wrappers for individual components:

    • Barcode
    • QRCode
  3. Import the Kendo UI packages to the App component. If you use the Kendo UI components more than once in your application, add all Kendo UI-related files to the main.js file. If you use the Kendo UI components once in your application, add the Kendo UI-related files the component where they will be referred.

    import '@progress/kendo-ui'
    import '@progress/kendo-theme-default/dist/all.css'
    import { Barcode,
            BarcodesInstaller } from '@progress/kendo-barcodes-vue-wrapper'
    new Vue({
       el: '#app',
       components: {
