Popups Overview

The Popups display content that provides information to the user on various occasions.

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates how to initialize the Notification and Tooltip.

<div id="vueapp" class="vue-app row example-wrapper">
    <kendo-notification ref="popupNotification"></kendo-notification>
    <button id="showPopupNotification" class="k-button" @click="showPopupNotification">As a popup at bottom-right</button>
    <kendo-tooltip id="tooltip"
                   title="Tooltip content"
        Hover me

new Vue({
    el: '#vueapp',
    methods: {
        showPopupNotification: function (e) {
    mounted: function () {
        this.popupNotificationWidget = this.$refs.popupNotification.kendoWidget();


To initialize the Popups, 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 Popups package for Vue.

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

    The package also exports the following wrappers for individual components:

    • Notification
    • Tooltip
  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.tooltip' // Imports only the Tooltip script and its dependencies
    // import '@progress/kendo-ui/js/kendo.notification' // Imports only the Notification script and its dependencies
    import '@progress/kendo-theme-default/dist/all.css'
    import { Tooltip,
       KendoPopupsInstaller } from '@progress/kendo-popups-vue-wrapper'
    new Vue({
     el: '#app',
     components: {
