The Quasar Toggle component is another basic element for user input. You can use this for turning settings, features or true/ false inputs on and off.

Please also refer to the Option Group documentation on other possibilities for creating groups of Toggles.

Works well with QField for additional functionality such as a helper, error message placeholder and many others.


Edit /quasar.conf.js:

framework: {
components: ['QToggle']

Basic Usage

<q-toggle v-model="checked" label="Toggle Label" />

<!-- With no label -->
<q-toggle v-model="checked" />

<!-- With a specific color -->
<q-toggle v-model="checked" color="teal-8" />

<!-- With icon -->
<q-toggle v-model="checked" icon="alarm" label="Toggle Label" />

<!-- Disabled state -->
<q-toggle v-model="checked" disable label="Toggle Label" />

Check “Vue Properties” for even more options.

Vue Properties

Supports v-model which you should bind to a Boolean or Array in your scope.

Vue PropertyTypeDescription
valObjectUsed to modify the v-model of the Toggle when using an Array as v-model.
true-valueAnyGets into “true” state when model has this value.
false-valueAnyGets into “false” state when model has this value.
labelStringThe text label for the Toggle.
left-labelBooleanSet to true, if the label should be placed to the left of the Toggle.
iconStringOptional icon to use. Overriden by checked-icon and unchecked-icon if the latter are used.
checked-iconStringThe icon to use, when the Toggle is checked.
unchecked-iconStringThe icon to use, when the Toggle is not checked.
colorStringColor from Quasar Color Palette.
keep-colorBooleanKeep color when not truthy too.
readonlyBooleanSet to true, to make the toggle read-only.
disableBooleanSet to true, to disable the toggle.
darkBooleanSet to true when background is dark.
no-focusBoolean(v0.17+) Disable accessibility for this component so that it can’t receive focus.

Vue Events

Vue EventDescription
@input(newVal)Triggered immediately on model value change.
@change(newVal)Triggered on lazy model value change.
@blurTriggered, when Toggle loses focus.
@focusTriggered, when Toggle gains focus.

Array as Model

If you have a number of toggles for a selection, use can also use an Array as the model object and the val prop for the inserted value into the Array.

<q-toggle v-model="selection" val="one" label="One" />
<q-toggle v-model="selection" val="two" label="Two" />
<q-toggle v-model="selection" val="three" label="Three" />

export default {
data () {
return {
selection: ['two']

Ticking all toggles will make selection scope variable to be ['one', 'two', 'three']. Unticking all toggles will result in selection being an empty array [].

More Examples

There are a number of props, which are available to help quickly format a Toggle. An interesting feature of Toggle is the ripple effect that user sees when clicking/tapping on it to change its state.

Custom Model Values

Instead of the default true/false values, you can use custom ones:

label="Do you agree with the terms & conditions?"

Specific State Icons

For a more informational Toggle, you can also use the checked-icon and unchecked-icon props to display an inset icon in the toggle.

label="Toggle Label"

Specifying checked-icon and unchecked-icon overrides icon property if you’ve also used it.


Use the color prop to control the toggle’s color.

<q-toggle v-model="checked" color="orange" />

<q-toggle v-model="checked" color="teal" />

<q-toggle v-model="checked" color="dark" />

Label Position

Use the left-label prop, to move the label to the left of Toggle.

label="Checkbox Label"

Usage Inside of a List

In the following example we use the right side of QItems to insert Toggle, but it works anywhere.

<q-list link>
Rendering a <label> tag (notice tag="label")
so the whole QItem will respond to clicks to
change Toggle state.
<q-item tag="label">
<q-item-tile label>Events and reminders</q-item-tile>
<q-item-side right>
<q-toggle v-model="checked" />
<q-item tag="label" multiline>
<q-item-tile label>Events and reminders</q-item-tile>
<q-item-tile sublabel>Lorem ipsum</q-item-tile>
<q-item-side right>
<q-toggle v-model="checked" class="purple" />
<q-item tag="label" multiline>
<q-item-tile label>Events and reminders</q-item-tile>
