Virtual scrollers

The v-virtual-scroll component displays a virtual, infinite list. It supports dynamic height and scrolling vertically and is a good alternative to pagination.


The virtual scroller displays just enough records to fill the viewport and uses the existing component, rehydrating it with new data.


The v-virtual-scroll component contains only a default slot with no styling options.

The v-virtual-scroll allows you to display thousands of records on a single page without the performance hit of actually showing all of them at once. v-virtual-scroll is devoid of styling and pairs well with components such as v-card to provide a better visual experience.


The v-virtual-scroll component has a small API mainly used to configure the root and item height.


The v-virtual-scroll component does not have any initial height set on itself.

The following code snippet uses the height prop:

Another way of making sure that the component has height is to place it inside an element with display: flex.

Item Height

For lists where the item height is static and uniform for all items, it’s recommended that you define a specific item-height. This value is used for v-virtual-scroll’s calculations.

If your items are not of a uniform size, omit the item-height prop to have v-virtual-scroll dynamically calculate each item.

Visible items

The v-virtual-scroll component renders a set amount of visible items, meant to cover the viewport of the scroller, plus some amount of buffer above and below it so that scrolling looks and feels smooth. Modify this value by using the visible-items prop.


The following is a collection of v-virtual-scroll examples that demonstrate how different the properties work in an application.

User Directory

The v-virtual-scroll component can render an large amount of items by rendering only what it needs to fill the scroller’s viewport.
