Getting Started

This section explains how to create a simple Switch, and configure its available functionalities in Vue, using Vue quickstart seed repository.

Dependencies

The list of dependencies required to use the Switch component in your application is given below:

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-buttons
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-vue-base

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

npm install

Install Syncfusion Switch packages using below command.

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

Registering Switch component using Vue.use()

Import the Switch 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 { SwitchPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons";

Vue.use(SwitchPlugin);

export default {}

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

Initialize Switch

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

<template>
  <ejs-switch checked=true></ejs-switch>
</template>

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

Vue.use(SwitchPlugin);

export default {}
</script>

Adding CSS Reference

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

<style>
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";
</style>

Run the application

Now run the npm run dev command in the console, it will build your application and open in the browser.

The following example shows a basic Switch.

Source
Preview
app.vue
<template>
  <ejs-switch checked=true></ejs-switch>
</template>

<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { SwitchPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons";
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);
Vue.use(SwitchPlugin);

export default {}
</script>

<style>
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";

.e-switch-wrapper {
  margin: 18px;
}
</style>

Set text on Switch

Switch component has text support. This can be achieved by setting onLabel and offLabel on Switch.

Switch does not have text support for material themes, and does not support long custom text.
