Prevent the focus on the first element in Vue Dialog component

16 Mar 20234 minutes to read

By default, the dialog focuses on the first elements of the content area which can be active and focusable. You can prevent this default focusing behavior using the open event and by enabling the preventFocus argument.

Bind the open event and enable the preventFocus argument within an event like the below sample.

    <div id="dialogTarget" class="control-section; position:relative" style="height:300px;">
        <!-- Render Button to open the Dialog -->
        <ejs-button id='dlgbtn' v-on:click.native="dialogBtnClick">Open Dialog</ejs-button>
        <!-- Render Dialog -->
        <ejs-dialog id="dialog" ref="Dialog" :header='header' :target='target' :width='width' :buttons='buttons' :visible='visible' :open="onOpen">
           <div class='form-group'><label for='email'>Email:</label>
                <input type='email' class='form-control' id='email'>
            <div class='form-group'>
                <label for='comment'>Password:</label>
                <input type='password' class='form-control' id='password'>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { DialogPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-popups';
import { ButtonPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons';

export default {
    data: function() {
        return {
            target: "#dialogTarget",
            width: '300px',
            header: 'Sign In',
            buttons: [{ click: this.dlgButtonClick, buttonModel: { content: 'Ok', isPrimary: true } }, { click: this.dlgButtonClick, buttonModel: { content: 'Cancel'} }]
    methods: {
        dialogBtnClick: function() {
        dlgButtonClick: function() {
        onOpen: function(args) {
            args.preventFocus = true;
@import "../../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-vue-popups/styles/material.css";
