VueRouter with Modals

It turned out to be problematic on the site to display an example for working with vue-router, but you can familiarize yourself with it by running npm run serve and go to /vue-router-with-modal.

In this example, we'll look at how vue-router integration works and how to use it.

To work with VueRouter, the library provides the useModalRouter method, which is primarily a wrapper for component. It is with the help of it that our components will be wrapped in modal windows. To use, let's create a simple config file for vue-router:

import {createRouter, createWebHashHistory} from "vue-router"
import {useModalRouter} from "jenesius-vue-mdoal";
import Modal from "./any-modal.vue";

const routes = [
        path: "/",
        component: SomeComponent
        path: "/users/:id",
        component: useModalRouter(Modal) // Step 1

const router =  createRouter({
    history: createWebHashHistory()

useModalRouter.init(router); // Step 2

export default router

Step 1

In the first step, we wrap the component. In fact, this method does the following:

  1. When switching to the specified route, it will show the passed component.
  2. Render always returns null as a result.
  3. When leaving the route, the current modal window will be closed.

Step 2

Before work, we must provide a router so that the library can subscribe to state changes router.

Now if we navigate to /users/:id our modal window will be opened.
