RadListView for Vue: Getting started

RadListView for Vue is exposed through the RadListViewComponent class. This article will guide you through the process of adding a RadListViewComponent in your application, binding it to a data-source and visualizing the items by using an item template of your choice. For more information on how each separate feature of RadListViewComponent is used, please refer to the dedicated articles which are using the same scenario and extend it further.


Run the following command to add the plugin to your application:

tns plugin add nativescript-ui-listview

Adding a RadListView to your Vue app

The first step is installing the Vue plugin for RadListView integration, adding that fragment in the top of the main file entry (usually main.js or main.ts):

import Vue from 'nativescript-vue';
import RadListView from 'nativescript-ui-listview/vue';


To add an instance of RadListViewComponent in an Vue template you need to use the <RadListView></RadListView> tag. You will also need to bind the control to a source of items and define an item template which will determine how each business object from the source collection will be visualized. The following Vue instance demonstrates this:

export default {
  template: `
      <RadListView ref="listView"
                   for="item in itemList"
          <StackLayout orientation="vertical">
            <Label :text="item.name"></Label>
            <Label :text="item.description"></Label>
  data() {
    return {
      itemList: [
        {name: 'Item 1', description: 'Item 1 description'},
        {name: 'Item 2', description: 'Item 2 description'},
        {name: 'Item 3', description: 'Item 3 description'},
  methods: {
    onItemTap({ item }) {
      console.log(`Tapped on ${item.name}`);
