Adding Syncfusion Range Navigator component in the application

You have completed all the necessary configurations needed for rendering the Syncfusion Vue component. Now, you are going to add the Range Navigator component using following steps.

1. Import the Range Navigator component in the <script> section of the src/App.vue file.

<script>
import { RangeNavigatorComponent, StepLineSeries, DateTime, RangenavigatorSeriesCollectionDirective,
RangenavigatorSeriesDirective } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-charts";
</script>

2. Register the Range Navigator component along with the required child directives which are used in this example. Find the list of child directives and the tag names that can be used in the Range Navigator component in the following table.

Directive Name Tag Name
RangenavigatorSeriesCollectionDirective e-rangenavigator-series-collection
RangenavigatorSeriesDirective e-rangenavigator-series
Copied to clipboard
import { RangeNavigatorComponent, StepLineSeries, DateTime, RangenavigatorSeriesCollectionDirective,
RangenavigatorSeriesDirective } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-charts";
//Component registeration.
export default {
name: "App",
components: {
"ejs-rangenavigator": RangeNavigatorComponent,
"e-rangenavigator-series-collection": RangenavigatorSeriesCollectionDirective,
"e-rangenavigator-series":  RangenavigatorSeriesDirective
  },
};

In the above code snippet, you have registered Range Navigator and the directives for series. Series directives are used to visualize the data with different chart types like Line, StepLine etc.

3. Add the component definition in template section.

Copied to clipboard
<template>
  <ejs-rangenavigator :valueType='valueType' :value='value' :labelFormat='labelFormat'>
      <e-rangenavigator-series-collection>
          <e-rangenavigator-series :dataSource='data' type='StepLine' xName='Date' yName='Close' width=2>
          </e-rangenavigator-series>
      </e-rangenavigator-series-collection>
  </ejs-rangenavigator>
</template>

Above is the Range Navigator component with dataSource bound to series directives.

4. Define the collection data which is bound for the dataSource, valueType, value and labelFormat properties in the script section.

  data() {
return {
 valueType: 'DateTime',
 value: [new Date("2008-01-01"), new Date("2010-01-01")],
 labelFormat: 'MMM-yy',
 data:[
    { Date: new Date("2005-01-01"), Close: 21 },
    { Date: new Date("2006-01-01"), Close: 24 },
    { Date: new Date("2007-01-01"), Close: 36 },
    { Date: new Date("2008-01-01"), Close: 38 },
    { Date: new Date("2009-01-01"), Close: 54 },
    { Date: new Date("2010-01-01"), Close: 57 },
    { Date: new Date("2011-01-01"), Close: 62 },
  ],
};
  },

5. Summarizing the above steps, update the src/App.vue file with following code.

<template>
  <ejs-rangenavigator :valueType='valueType' :value='value' :labelFormat='labelFormat'>
      <e-rangenavigator-series-collection>
          <e-rangenavigator-series :dataSource='data' type='StepLine' xName='Date' yName='Close' width=2>
          </e-rangenavigator-series>
      </e-rangenavigator-series-collection>
  </ejs-rangenavigator>
</template>

<script>
import { RangeNavigatorComponent, StepLineSeries, DateTime, RangenavigatorSeriesCollectionDirective,
RangenavigatorSeriesDirective } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-charts";

export default {
name: "App",
components: {
"ejs-rangenavigator": RangeNavigatorComponent,
"e-rangenavigator-series-collection": RangenavigatorSeriesCollectionDirective,
"e-rangenavigator-series":  RangenavigatorSeriesDirective
  },
  data() {
return {
 valueType: 'DateTime',
 value: [new Date("2008-01-01"), new Date("2010-01-01")],
 labelFormat: 'MMM-yy',
 data:[
    { Date: new Date("2005-01-01"), Close: 21 },
    { Date: new Date("2006-01-01"), Close: 24 },
    { Date: new Date("2007-01-01"), Close: 36 },
    { Date: new Date("2008-01-01"), Close: 38 },
    { Date: new Date("2009-01-01"), Close: 54 },
    { Date: new Date("2010-01-01"), Close: 57 },
    { Date: new Date("2011-01-01"), Close: 62 },
  ],
};
  },
  provide: {
rangeNavigator: [ DateTime, StepLineSeries ],
  },
};
</script>

6. Run the application using the following command.
