[Vue.js] Dropzone is not defined when used inside a component

Im currently trying to import vue2-dropzone into my Laravel project so it is using Laravel mix.

when importing it in my bootstrap.js as below:

import vueDropzone from “vue2-dropzone”;
Vue.component(‘vueDropzone’, vueDropzone)

I then want to be able to use in one of my components which is inside a file called “CreatePersonalExpense.vue”. This component is accessed using vue.js router.

Below is a snippet of how it is being used in my component:


<div class=”form-row py-2”>
<div class=”col-md-12”>
<vue-dropzone v-on:vdropzone-sending=”sendingFiles” id=”drop1” ref=”myVueDropzone” @vdropzone-complete-multiple=”afterAllFilesUploaded” :options=”dropOptions”></vue-dropzone>


export default {

data() {
return {
type: “personal”,
id: “”,
total: “”,
files: {
dropOptions: {
url: ‘/api/expenses/files’,
autoProcessQueue: false,
uploadMultiple: true,
headers: { “x-csrf-token”: document.querySelector(‘meta[name=”csrf-token”]‘).getAttribute(‘content’) },
params: {}
errors: new Errors(),
form: new Form(),

components: {

However the dropzone is not recognised and I get the error:

Uncaught ReferenceError: vueDropzone is not defined

However if I were to import the dropzone directly into this vue.js component by putting import vueDropzone from “vue2-dropzone”; at the beginning of the script tag, dropzone works fine. Why can’t I just include it in the bootstrap.js file and have it work for there?

Solution :

Try defining as below =>

Vue.component(‘vue-dropzone’, vueDropzone)

Solution 2:

If you already register vueDropzone in bootstrap.js, you don’t need to register it again in the component. You should remove this in CreatePersonalExpense.vue

components: {

vueDropzone is an undefined variable. Just remove it and it should work.
