System requirements for Syncfusion Vue UI components

Creating Vue application using Vue CLI

The easiest way to create a Vue application is to use the Vue CLI. Vue CLI versions above 4.5.0 are mandatory for creating applications using Vue 3. Use the following command to uninstall older versions of the Vue CLI.

npm uninstall vue-cli -g

Use the following commands to install the latest version of Vue CLI.

npm install -g @vue/cli
npm install -g @vue/cli-init

Create a new project using the command below.

vue create quickstart
cd quickstart

Initiating a new project prompts us to choose the type of project to be used for the current application. Select the option Default (Vue 3) from the menu.


Adding Syncfusion Card package in application

All the available Essential JS 2 packages are published in registry.
You can choose the component that you want to install. For this application, we are going to use Card component.

To install Card component, use the following command

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-vue-layouts –save

Adding CSS reference for Syncfusion Vue Card component

Import the needed css styles for the Card component along with dependency styles in the <style> section of the src/App.vue file as follows.

@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-vue-layouts/styles/material.css';

Adding a header and content

You can create Card with a header in a specific structure. For adding header you need to create a div element with e-card-header class added.

  • You can include heading inside the Card header by adding a div element with e-card-header-caption class, and also content will be added
    by adding element with e-card-content. For detailed information, refer to the Header and Content.

          <div class = "e-card">                    --> Root Element
              <div class="e-card-header">           --> Root Header Element
                  <div class="e-card-header-caption">    --> Root Heading Element
                      <div class="e-card-header-title"></div>   --> Heading Title Element
                  <div class="e-card-content"></div>         --> Card content Element

Adding Syncfusion Vue Card component in the application

You have completed all the necessary configurations needed for rendering the Syncfusion Vue component. Add the HTML div element with e-card class into the <template> section of the App.vue file in src directory.

    <div id='container' style="margin:50px auto 0; width:100%;">
          <div tabindex="0" class="e-card" id="basic">
            <div class="e-card-header">
                <div class="e-card-header-caption">
                    <div class="e-card-title">Advanced UWP</div>
            <div class="e-card-content">
