This page assumes you’ve already read the Components Basics. Read that first if you are new to components. Unlike components and props, event names don’t provide any automatic case transformation. Instead, the name of an emitted event must exactly match the name used to listen to that event. For example, if emitting a camelCased event name:. Listening to the kebab-cased version will have no effect:.

Unlike components and props, event names will never be used as variable or property names in JavaScript, so there’s no reason to use camelCase or PascalCase. Additionally, v-on event listeners inside DOM templates will be automatically transformed to lowercase (due to HTML’s case-insensitivity), so v-on:myEvent would become v-on:myevent – making myEvent impossible to listen to.

For these reasons, we recommend you always use kebab-case for event names. By default, v-model on a component uses value as the prop and input as the event, but some input types such as checkboxes and radio buttons may want to use the value attribute for a different purpose.

Using the model option can avoid a conflict in such cases:. Now when using v-model on this component:. the value of lovingVue will be passed to the checked prop.

Options / Data

The lovingVue property will then be updated when emits a change event with a new value. Note that you still have to declare the checked prop in the component’s props option.

Value Bindings

There may be times when you want to listen directly to a native event on the root element of a component. In these cases, you can use the .native modifier for v-on:. This can be useful sometimes, but it’s not a good idea when you’re trying to listen on a very specific element, like an . For example, the component above might refactor so that the root element is actually a

Solution 2: Two-way computed property

In that case, the .native listener in the parent would silently break. There would be no errors, but the onFocus handler wouldn’t be called when we expected it to.

To solve this problem, Vue provides a $listeners property containing an object of listeners being used on the component. Using the $listeners property, you can forward all event listeners on the component to a specific child element with v-on="$listeners". For elements like , that you also want to work with v-model, it’s often useful to create a new computed property for listeners, like inputListeners below:.

Solution 1: Modifying v-model logic

Now the component is a fully transparent wrapper, meaning it can be used exactly like a normal element: all the same attributes and listeners will work, without the .native modifier.

In some cases, we may need “two-way binding” for a prop. Unfortunately, true two-way binding can create maintenance issues, because child components can mutate the parent without the source of that mutation being obvious in both the parent and the child.

That’s why instead, we recommend emitting events in the pattern of update:myPropName. For example, in a hypothetical component with a title prop, we could communicate the intent of assigning a new value with:. Then the parent can listen to that event and update a local data property, if it wants to. For convenience, we offer a shorthand for this pattern with the .sync modifier:.

Note that v-bind with the .sync modifier does not work with expressions (e.g. v-bind:title.sync=”doc.title + ‘!’” is invalid). Instead, you must only provide the name of the property you want to bind, similar to v-model. The .sync modifier can also be used with v-bind when using an object to set multiple props at once:.

This passes each property in the doc object (e.g.
