Window Overview

The Window displays content in a modal or non-modal HTML window and, by default, can be moved, resized, and closed.

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

Change Theme:


To initialize the Window, 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 Window package for Vue.

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

	<kendo-window :title="'Window title'" v-on:open="onOpen">Content</kendo-window>

new Vue({
	el: '#vueapp',
	methods: {
		onOpen (e) {
			console.log('Window is about to be opened.');
