Getting started with Vue Dashboard Layout component

The following section explains the required steps to build the simple DashboardLayout component with its basic usage in step-by-step procedure.

Dependencies

The following list of dependencies is required to use the DashboardLayout component in your application.

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

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 the below Vue CLI command.
vue init webpack-simple quickstart

cd quickstart

npm install

Adding Syncfusion packages

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

To install DashboardLayout component, use the following command

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

Registering Vue component

Two ways are available for registering the Vue Component. They are as follows.

  • Vue.use()
  • Vue.component()

Using Vue.use()

Import the Component Plugin from the EJ2 Vue Package and register the same using Vue.use() with Component Plugin as its argument.

Refer the code snippet given below.

import { DashboardLayoutPlugin } from '@syncfuion/ej2-vue-layouts';

Vue.use(DashboardLayoutPlugin);

By Registering Component Plugin in Vue, all child directives are also globally registered.

Using Vue.component()

Import the DashboardLayout Component from EJ2 Vue Package, register the same using the Vue.component() with name of Component from ComponentPlugin and the EJ2 Vue Component as its arguments.

Refer the code snippet given below.

import { DashboardLayoutComponent, DashboardLayoutPlugin } from '@syncfuion/ej2-vue-layouts';

Vue.component(DashboardLayoutPlugin.name, DashboardLayoutComponent);

Note: By using Vue.component(), only the EJ2 Vue Component is registered. Child directives needs to be registered separately.

Add DashboardLayout to the application

You can render the DashboardLayout component in the following two ways.

  • Defined the panels property as the attribute in the HTML div element directly into the <template>.
  • Using the panels property in <e-panels>.

Setting the panels property using HTML attributes

Add the HTML div element into the <template> section of the App.vue file in src directory, the content attribute of the Splitter component is provided as name in data option in the <script> section.

<template>
    <div>
        <div class="control-section">
            <!--  DashboardLayout element declaration -->
            <ejs-dashboardlayout id='defaultLayout' :cellSpacing="spacing" :columns="6">

<script>
import Vue from "vue";
// Import syncfusion dashboardlayout component from layouts package
import { DashboardLayoutPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-layouts";

Vue.use(DashboardLayoutPlugin);

export default {
    data: function() {
        return {
          count: 8,
          spacing: [10,10]
        };
    }
}
</script>

Adding style sheet to the application

To render the DashboardLayout component, need to import Layouts and its dependent 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-vue-layouts/styles/material.css";
</style>

Note: If you want to refer the combined component styles, please make use of our CRG (Custom Resource Generator) in your application.

Run the application

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