Upload Overview

The Upload helps users send files from local file systems to dedicated server handlers which are configured to receive them.

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

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates how to initialize the Upload.

<div id="vueapp" class="vue-app">
    <kendo-upload ref="upload"

new Vue({
    el: "#vueapp",
    mounted: function () {
            The code in this function is only added to simulate a successful upload request for this demo.
            Do not use the code in other cases when working with the Upload component.
        var upload = this.$refs.upload.kendoWidget();

        upload._module.postFormData = function (url, data, fileEntry, xhr) {
            var module = this;
            fileEntry.data("request", xhr);
            setTimeout(function () {
                var e = { target: { responseText: '', statusText: "OK", status: 200 } };
                module.onRequestSuccess.call(module, e, fileEntry);
            }, 1000);

        upload._submitRemove = function (fileNames, eventArgs, onSuccess, onError) {


To initialize the Upload, 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 Upload package for Vue.

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