View Source
Change Theme:


To initialize the Dialog, 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 Dialog package for Vue.

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-dialog-vue-wrapper
  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' // This will import the entire Kendo UI library
    // As an alternative, you could import only the scripts that are used by a specific widget:
    // import '@progress/kendo-ui/js/kendo.dialog' // Imports only the Dialog script and its dependencies
    import '@progress/kendo-theme-default/dist/all.css'
    import { Dialog } from '@progress/kendo-dialog-vue-wrapper'
    import { DialogInstaller } from '@progress/kendo-dialog-vue-wrapper'
    new Vue({
    	el: '#app',
    	components: {

Functionality and Features


The following example demonstrates basic Dialog events. You can subscribe to all events of the Dialog by the handler name.

<div id="vueapp" class="vue-app">
    <kendo-dialog v-on:close="onClose"
				  :title="'Hello Dialog'"
				  :content="'This is dialog content'">
		<kendo-dialog-action :text="'OK'"></kendo-dialog-action>
		<kendo-dialog-action :text="'Cancel'"

new Vue({
	el: '#vueapp',
	methods: {
	  onClose () {
	    console.log("Dialog is about to be closed.");
	  onOpen () {
	    console.log("Dialog is about to be opened.");
