Programmatic access to input elements for focus and select

  • I tried to find an answer to this by browsing the source, but I couldn’t find the code for the input element. I’m desperately looking for a UI framework like Quasar which support programmatic access to input elements. I’ve been using vue-mdl for some time, but that’s transitioning to vue-mdc now and has a long way to go. The specific feature I’m after is being able to focus and select text within in input field from within javascript. This wasn’t available in vue-mdl but I was able to add it in by hand.

    Does the Quasar input element support these actions (focus() and select()) on input elements natively?

    There’s currently no component which wraps an input field, so you can focus()/select() it as you wish. In v0.14 on the other hand there will be an input wrapper component, but you will still be able to access the native input element.

  • Ah - that explains why I couldn’t find it in the source :). Many thanks.
