Buttons Overview

The Buttons provide a clickable UI functionality with arbitrary content.

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates how to initialize the Button, ButtonGroup, and ToolBar.

<div id="vueapp" class="vue-app">
    <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 example-col">
        <p>Button</p>
        <kendo-button @click="onButtonClick">Default</kendo-button>
        <kendo-button class="k-primary" @click="onButtonClick">Primary</kendo-button>
        <kendo-button :disabled="true" @click="onButtonClick">Disabled</kendo-button>
    </div>

    <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 example-col">
        <p>ButtonGroup</p>
        <kendo-buttongroup>
            <kendo-buttongroup-button>Option A</kendo-buttongroup-button>
            <kendo-buttongroup-button>Option B</kendo-buttongroup-button>
            <kendo-buttongroup-button>Option C</kendo-buttongroup-button>
        </kendo-buttongroup>
    </div>

    <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 example-col">
        <p>ToolBar</p>
        <kendo-toolbar>
            <kendo-toolbar-item type="button" text="Button"></kendo-toolbar-item>
            <kendo-toolbar-item type="button" text="Toggle Button" :togglable="true"></kendo-toolbar-item>
            <kendo-toolbar-item type="splitButton" text="Insert" :menu-buttons="[
                { text: 'Insert above', icon: 'insert-up' },
                { text: 'Insert between', icon: 'insert-middle' },
                { text: 'Insert below', icon: 'insert-down' }]">
            </kendo-toolbar-item>
            <kendo-toolbar-item type="separator"></kendo-toolbar-item>
            <kendo-toolbar-item type="buttonGroup" :buttons="[
                { icon: 'align-left', text: 'Left', togglable: true, group: 'text-align' },
                { icon: 'align-center', text: 'Center', togglable: true, group: 'text-align' },
                { icon: 'align-right', text: 'Right', togglable: true, group: 'text-align' }]">
            </kendo-toolbar-item>
            <kendo-toolbar-item type="button" text="Action" overflow="always"></kendo-toolbar-item>
            <kendo-toolbar-item type="button" text="Another Action" overflow="always"></kendo-toolbar-item>
            <kendo-toolbar-item type="button" text="Something else here" overflow="always"></kendo-toolbar-item>
        </kendo-toolbar>
    </div>
</div>
Vue.use(ButtonsInstaller);

new Vue({
    el: "#vueapp",
    methods: {
        onButtonClick: function (ev) {
            console.log("Button clicked!");
        }
    }
})

Installation

To initialize the Buttons, 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 Buttons package for Vue.

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

    The package also exports the following wrappers for individual components:

    • Button
    • ButtonGroup
    • ToolBar
  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 { Button,
            ButtonGroup,
            ButtonGroupButton,
            ToolBar,
            ToolBarItem,
            ButtonsInstaller } from '@progress/kendo-buttons-vue-wrapper'
    
    Vue.use(ButtonsInstaller)
    
    new Vue({
       el: '#app',
       components: {
           Button,
           ButtonGroup,
           ButtonGroupButton,
           ToolBar,
           ToolBarItem
       }
    })
