๐Ÿ’ฌ Quote of the week๐Ÿ”ฅ Vue Tip: Accessing Template Ref in Child Component

Sometimes you need to access a template ref of a nested component. For example, you want to focus an input field in a child component from the parent component.

Let's take a look at how you can do this in Vue 3:

<script setup lang="ts"> import { ref } from 'vue'; const innerChildRef = ref<HTMLElement | null>(null); defineExpose({ innerChildRef, }); </script> <template> <div ref="innerChildRef"> <!-- child content --> </div> </template>

In the child component, we define a template ref called innerChildRef and expose it to the parent component using defineExpose().

Now you can access this template ref in the parent component:

<script setup lang="ts"> import { ref, onMounted } from 'vue'; import Child from './components/Child.vue'; const child = ref(null); onMounted(() => { if (child.value) { console.log('Inner Child ref', child.value.innerChildRef); } }); </script> <template> <Child ref="child" /> </template>

Try it yourself in the following StackBlitz project:
