Chips is used to enter multiple values on an input field.

import Chips from 'primevue/chips';

Chips is used as a controlled input with v-model property where it should be an array.

<Chips v-model="value" />

A new chip is added when enter key is pressed, separator property allows definining an additional key. Currently only valid value is , to create a new item when comma key is pressed.

<Chips v-model="value" separator=","  />

Chip content is customized using item slot that receives a single chip value as a parameter.

<Chips v-model="value">
    <template #chip="slotProps">
            <span>{{ slotProps.value }} - (active) </span>
            <i class="pi pi-user-plus" style="font-size: 14px"></i>

A floating label appears on top of the input field when focused.

<span class="p-float-label">
    <Chips id="chips" v-model="value" />
    <label for="chips">Chips</label>

Invalid state style is added using the p-invalid class to indicate a failed validation.

<Chips v-model="value" class="p-invalid" />

When disabled is present, the element cannot be edited and focused.

<Chips v-model="value" disabled />
