Item Configuration in Vue Toolbar component

02 Feb 2023 / 4 minutes to read

The Vue Toolbar can be rendered by defining an array of items. Items can be constructed with the following built-in command types or item template.

Button

Button is the default command type, and it can be rendered by using the text property. Properties of the button command type:

Property Description
text The text to be displayed for button.
id The ID of the button to be rendered. If the ID is not given, auto ID is generated.
prefixIcon Defines the class used to specify an icon for the button. The icon is positioned before the text if text is available or the icon alone button is rendered.
suffixIcon Defines the class used to specify an icon for the button. The icon is positioned after the text if text is available. If both prefixIcon and suffixIcon are specified, only prefixIcon is considered.
width Used to set the width of the button.

Separator

The Separator type adds a vertical separation between the Toolbar’s single/multiple commands.

If Separator is added as the first or the last item, it will not be visible.

Enabling tab key navigation in Toolbar

The tabIndex property of a Toolbar item is used to enable tab key navigation for the item. By default, the user can switch between items using the arrow keys, but the tabIndex property allows you to switch between items using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys as well.

To use the tabIndex property, you need to set it for each Toolbar item that you want to enable tab key navigation. The tabIndex property should be set to a positive integer value. A value of 0 or a negative value will disable tab key navigation for the item.

For example, to enable tab key navigation for two Toolbar items, you can use the following code:

Copied to clipboard
<template>
  <div id="app">
    <ejs-toolbar>
      <e-items>
        <e-item text='Item 1' tabIndex="1"></e-item>
        <e-item text='Item 2' tabIndex="2"></e-item>
        <e-item text='Item 3' tabIndex="3"></e-item>
      </e-items>
    </ejs-toolbar>
  </div>
</template>
<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { ToolbarPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-navigations';

Vue.use(ToolbarPlugin);
export default {
  name: 'app',
}
</script>

With the above code, the user can switch between the two Toolbar items using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys, in addition to using the arrow keys. The items will be navigated in the order specified by the tabIndex values.

If you set the tabIndex value to 0 for all Toolbar items, tab key navigation will be based on the element order rather than the tabIndex values. For example:

Copied to clipboard
<template>
  <div id="app">
    <ejs-toolbar>
      <e-items>
        <e-item text='Item 1' tabIndex="0"></e-item>
        <e-item text='Item 2' tabIndex="0"></e-item>
        <e-item text='Item 3' tabIndex="0"></e-item>
      </e-items>
    </ejs-toolbar>
  </div>
</template>
<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { ToolbarPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-navigations';

Vue.use(ToolbarPlugin);
export default {
  name: 'app',
}
</script>

In this case, the user can switch between the two Toolbar items using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys, and the items will be navigated in the order in which they appear in the DOM.

Example:

Here is an example of how you can use the tabIndex property to enable tab key navigation for a Toolbar component:

        <e-item text='Copy' tabIndex="0"></e-item>
        <e-item text='Paste' tabIndex="0"></e-item>
        <e-item type='Separator'></e-item>
        <e-item text='Bold'></e-item>
        <e-item text='Italic'></e-item>
        <e-item text='Underline'></e-item>
      </e-items>
    </ejs-toolbar>
  </div>
</template>
<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { ToolbarPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-navigations';

Vue.use(ToolbarPlugin);
export default {
  name: 'app',
}
</script>
<style>
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-vue-buttons/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-vue-popups/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-vue-navigations/styles/material.css";
</style>

With the above code, the user can switch between the Toolbar items using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys, and the items will be navigated based on the element order.
