Handle page selection

Custom Event

When a page is selected a custom paginate event will be dispatched. Listen to it on the component and run your callback

Event bus

Note: To use this option you must:

A. Provide a unique identifier using the for prop B. Import the pagination event bus along with the component itself:

import {Pagination,PaginationEvent} from 'vue-pagination-2'

When a page is selected the bus will dispatched an event, using the unique id for the component. Listen to it on your bus and respond accordingly:

PaginationEvent.$on('vue-pagination::some-entity', function(page) {
    // display the relevant records using the page param

Vuex (>=2.0.0)

Note: To use this option you must provide a unique identifier using the for prop.

The component will register a module on your store using the for prop as the name. The module will have a page property that will contain the current page. vue-devtools will give you a nice overview of the data structure.

If you want to latch on to an existing module on your store, use its name in the for prop and manuaully add the following to you store:

      page: 1
  mutations: {
       ['myModule/PAGINATE'](state, page) {
     = page

Programmatic Manipulation

To programmatically set the page apply a ref identifier to the component and use one of the following methods:

  • setPage(page)
  • next()
  • prev()
  • nextChunk()
  • prevChunk()

All methods return true if the page is legal and was thus set, or false otherwise.

Computed Properties

  • totalPages
  • totalChunks
  • currentChunk

Custom Template

You can easily build your own template by copying src/Pagination.vue to your project as a starting point and modifying the contents to your needs.


  • Be sure to modify the import path from:
import RenderlessPagination from './RenderlessPagination.js';


import RenderlessPagination from 'vue-pagination-2/compiled/RenderlessPagination.js';
  • Only modify the content under the RenderLessPagination wrapping component
  • Do NOT remove any binding or event handlers
