Grid Overview

The Kendo UI Grid wrapper for Vue displays data in a tabular format and provides a full spectrum of configuration options.

It supports the implementation of data operations and can be bound to local or remote data.

The Kendo UI Data Grid wrapper for Vue is a client-side wrapper for the Kendo UI Grid widget.

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates how to initialize the Grid.

View Source
Change Theme:


To initialize the Kendo UI Grid wrapper for Vue, 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 Grid package for Vue.

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-grid-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.grid' // Imports only the Grid script and its dependencies
    import '@progress/kendo-theme-default/dist/all.css'
    import { Grid, GridInstaller } from '@progress/kendo-grid-vue-wrapper'
    new Vue({
        el: '#app',
        components: {

Functionality and Features


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

<div id="vueapp" class="vue-app">
    <kendo-grid :data-source="localDataSource"
                :selectable="'multiple cell'"

new Vue({
    el: '#vueapp',
    methods: {
        onChange: function(ev) {
            var selected = $.map(, function(item) {
                return $(item).text();

            console.log("Selected: " + selected.length + " item(s), [" + selected.join(", ") + "]");
        onDataBinding: function(ev) {
            console.log("Grid data binding");
        onDataBound: function(ev) {
            console.log("Grid data bound");
        onSorting: function(ev) {
            console.log("Sorting on field: " + ev.sort.field + ", direction:" + (ev.sort.dir || "none"));
        onFiltering: function(ev) {
            console.log("Filter on " + kendo.stringify(ev.filter));
        onGrouping: function(ev) {
            console.log("Group on " + kendo.stringify(ev.groups));
        onGroupExpand: function(ev) {
            console.log("The group to be expanded: " + kendo.stringify(;
        onGroupCollapse: function(ev) {
            console.log("The group to be collapsed: " + kendo.stringify(;
    data: {
        localDataSource: [{
                "ProductID": 1,
                "ProductName": "Chai",
                "UnitPrice": 18,
