Setting Up Your Vue Project

Before you install the Kendo UI for Vue Native Notification, make sure that you have a running Vue project. The easiest way to set up a Vue project is to use the approach described in the Set up the Vue project section of the First Steps with JavaScript article.

Installing the ScrollView Package

All Kendo UI for Vue packages are distributed through npm and offer a similar installation experience. To use the ScrollView component, start with the installation of the ScrollView npm package and its dependencies. Use Node.js v5.0.0 or later.

npm install --save @progress/kendo-vue-scrollview @progress/kendo-vue-intl @progress/kendo-licensing @progress/kendo-svg-icons

Importing the Component

After installing the package, import the ScrollView component in the Vue App.

In the src/App.vue file of your Vue project, import the ScrollView component from the ScrollView package.

// ES2015 module syntax
import { ScrollView } from "@progress/kendo-vue-scrollview";
// CommonJS format
const { ScrollView } = require('@progress/kendo-vue-scrollview');

Using the Component

  1. Define the items property that holds the data of the images we want to display in the ScrollView. Add the following code in the src/App.vue file.
  items: [
      position: 1,
      url: '',
      position: 2,
      url: '',
      position: 3,
      url: '',
      position: 4,
      url: '',
  1. Add the component's markup to the template section of the src/App.vue file in your project.
        width: '512px',
        height: '384px',
      <template v-slot:content="{ props }">
        <div class="image-with-text">
            :alt="`Photo ${props.item.position}`"
              width: '512px',
              height: '384px',
  1. Add the component's CSS to the styles section of the src/App.vue file.
/* center the ScrollView horizontally */
/* k-scrollview is the default component class */
.k-scrollview {
    margin: 0 auto;
  1. To style the ScrollView, install and import the Default theme, which is one of the four beautiful themes for Kendo UI for Vue

    1. Install the Default theme package.

      npm install --save @progress/kendo-theme-default
    2. Import the CSS file from the package in src/App.js. Add this import before your existing App.css import.

      import '@progress/kendo-theme-default/dist/all.css';
  2. Build and run the application by typing the following command in the root folder of your project:

    npm run dev

Activating Your License Key

Using any of the UI components in the Kendo UI for Vue library requires either a commercial license key or an active trial license key.

Follow the instructions on My License page to activate your trial or commercial license. You can skip this step if your application already contains a Kendo UI for Vue license file.
