        <ejs-dropdownlist id='dropdownlist' ref='dropdown' placeholder='Select a customer' :actionComplete='actionComplete' :dataSource='dataSource' :query='query' :fields='fields'></ejs-dropdownlist>
    <div style='padding: 50px 0'>
      <button id='first' class="e-control e-btn" v-on:click="getItems"> Get items</button>
    <p id='event'> </p>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { DropDownListPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-dropdowns";
import { DataManager,Query,ODataV4Adaptor } from "@syncfusion/ej2-data";
export default {
  data (){
    return {
        query :  new Query().from('Customers').select(['ContactName', 'CustomerID']).take(6),
        dataSource : new DataManager({
          url: '',
          adaptor: new ODataV4Adaptor,
          crossDomain: true
        fields: { text: 'ContactName', value: 'CustomerID' }
   methods: {
        actionComplete: function (e) {
            // initially result contains 6 items
            console.log("Before modified the result: " + e.result.length);
            // remove first 2 items from result.
            e.result.splice(0, 2);
            // now displays the result count is 4.
            console.log("After modified the result: " + e.result.length);
        getItems: function(e) {
            // get items count using getItems method
            console.log("Total items count: " + this.$refs.dropdown.getItems().length);
            var element = document.createElement('p');
            element.innerText = "Total items count: " + this.$refs.dropdown.getItems().length;
