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

Install Syncfusion DropDownButton packages using below command.

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

Registering DropDownButton component using Vue.use()

Import the DropDownButton 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 { DropDownButtonPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-splitbuttons";

Vue.use(DropDownButtonPlugin);

export default {}

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

Initialize DropDownButton

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

<template>
<ejs-dropdownbutton :items='items'>Clipboard</ejs-dropdownbutton>
</template>

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

Vue.use(DropDownButtonPlugin);

export default {
    data () {
        return {
            items:[
            {
                text: 'Cut'
            },
            {
                text: 'Copy'
            },
            {
                text: 'Paste'
            }]
        };
    }
}
</script>

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

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