The application service is used to configure your Vuetify layout. It does so through a special app prop that exists on certain layout components such as v-navigation-drawer and v-toolbar. This property tells the service to account for that components dimensions within your layout. It then works in conjunction with v-content to ensure your content area is always propertly sized.

Application service object

The application-service has a number of properties that can be accessed:


These values are automatically updated when you add new components with the app prop. They are not editable and exist in a READONLY state. You can access these values by referencing the application property on the $vuetify object.


All about app

In Vuetify, the v-app component and the app help bootstrap your application with the proper sizing around v-content. This allows you to create truly unique interfaces without the hassle of managing your layout. The v-app component is REQUIRED for all applications. This is the mount point for many of Vuetify's components and functionality. This also serves to ensure proper cross-browser support for certain click events and should only be used within an application once.

In order for your application to work properly, you must wrap it in a v-app component. This component is required for ensuring proper cross-browser compatibility. It can exist anywhere inside the body, but must be the parent of ALL Vuetify components.

Default application markup

This is an example of the default application markup for Vuetify. You can place your layout elements anywhere, as long as you apply the app property. The key component in all of this is the v-content element. This will be dynamically sized depending upon the structure of your designated app components. You can use combinations of any or all of the above components including v-bottom-navigation.

When using vue-router it is recommended that you place your views inside v-content.


Applying the app prop automatically applies position: fixed to the layout element. If your application calls for an absolute element, you can overwrite this functionality using the absolute prop.
