Moving panels in Vue Dashboard layout component

16 Mar 20234 minutes to read

Other than drag and drop, it is possible to move the panels in Dashboard Layout programatically. This can be achieved using movePanel method. The method is invoked as follows,

movePanel(id, row, col)


  • id - ID of the panel which needs to be moved.
  • row - New row position for moving the panel.
  • col - New column position for moving the panel.

Each time a panel’s position is changed(Programatically or through UI interaction), the Dashboard Layout’s change event will be triggered.

The following sample demonstrates moving a panel programatically to a new position in the Dashboard Layout’s created event.

    <div class="control-section">
        <!--  DashboardLayout element declaration -->
        <ejs-dashboardlayout id='dashboard_layout'  ref="dashboard"  :columns="5" :cellSpacing='cellSpacing' :created="onCreated" :change="onChange" >
                <e-panel :sizeX="1" :sizeY="1" :row="0" :col="0" content="<div class='content'>0</div>"></e-panel>
                <e-panel :sizeX="3" :sizeY="2" :row="0" :col="1" content="<div class='content'>1</div>"></e-panel>
                <e-panel :sizeX="1" :sizeY="3" :row="0" :col="4" content="<div class='content'>2</div>"></e-panel>
                <e-panel :sizeX="1" :sizeY="1" :row="1" :col="0" content="<div class='content'>3</div>"></e-panel>
                <e-panel :sizeX="2" :sizeY="1" :row="2" :col="0" content="<div class='content'>4</div>"></e-panel>
                <e-panel :sizeX="1" :sizeY="1" :row="2" :col="2" content="<div class='content'>5</div>"></e-panel>  
                <e-panel :sizeX="1" :sizeY="1" :row="2" :col="3" content="<div class='content'>6</div>"></e-panel>  
        <!-- end of dashboardlayout element -->
