Getting Started

This section explains how to create a simple CheckBox, and configure its available functionalities in Vue, using Vue quickstart seed repository.

Dependencies

The list of dependencies required to use the CheckBox component in your application is given below:

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-buttons
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-vue-base

Installation and configuration

You can use Vue CLI to setup your vue applications. To install Vue CLI use the following command.

npm install -g @vue/cli

npm install -g @vue/cli-init

Start a new project using below Vue CLI command.

vue init webpack-simple quickstart

cd quickstart

npm install

Install Syncfusion CheckBox packages using below command.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons --save

Registering CheckBox component using Vue.use()

Import the CheckBox Plugin from the Essential JS 2 Vue package and register the same using Vue.use() with Component Plugin as its argument.

Refer to the code snippet given below.

import Vue from 'vue';
import { CheckBoxPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons";

Vue.use(CheckBoxPlugin);

export default {}

By registering component plugin in Vue, all child directives are also globally registered. We can also use Vue.Component() to register CheckBox. Refer here to know more about component registration.

Initialize CheckBox

Add the EJ2 Vue CheckBox using <ejs-checkbox> to the <template> section of the App.vue file in src directory.

<template>
<ejs-checkbox label='Default'></ejs-checkbox>
</template>

<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { CheckBoxPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons";

Vue.use(CheckBoxPlugin);

export default {}
</script>

Adding CSS Reference

Add CheckBox component’s styles as given below in <style> section of the App.vue file.

<style>
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";
</style>

Run the application

Now run the npm run dev command in the console, it will build your application and open in the browser.

The following example shows a basic CheckBox.

Source
Preview
app.vue
<template>
<ejs-checkbox label='Default'></ejs-checkbox>
</template>

<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { CheckBoxPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons";
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);
Vue.use(CheckBoxPlugin);

export default {}
</script>

<style>
  @import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
  @import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";

.e-checkbox-wrapper {
  margin-top: 18px;
}
</style>

Change the CheckBox state

The Essential JS 2 CheckBox contains 3 different states visually, they are:

  • Checked
  • Unchecked
  • Indeterminate

The CheckBox checked property is used to handle the checked and unchecked state. In checked state a tick mark will be added to the visualization of CheckBox.

Indeterminate

The CheckBox indeterminate state can be set through indeterminate property. CheckBox indeterminate state masks the real value of CheckBox visually. The Checkbox cannot be changed to indeterminate state through the user interface, this state can be achieved only through the property.

Source
Preview
app.vue
<template>
<ul>
<li><ejs-checkbox label='Checked State' checked=true></ejs-checkbox></li>
<li><ejs-checkbox label='Unchecked State'></ejs-checkbox></li>
<li><ejs-checkbox label='Indeterminate State' indeterminate=true></ejs-checkbox></li>
</ul>
</template>

<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { CheckBoxPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons";
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);
Vue.use(CheckBoxPlugin);

export default {}
</script>

<style>
  @import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
  @import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";

.e-checkbox-wrapper {
  margin-top: 18px;
}

li {
  list-style: none;
}
</style>
