How to use Vue.js filters inside the Vue instance

in Code Write a comment

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to use custom Vue.js filters inside the Vue component.

Let’s suppose you’ve created a custom filter (uppercase) that transforms the text into uppercase. It can be either global or local filter more on that here.

filters: {
  uppercase: function (value) {
    if (!value) return ''
    return value.toString().toUpperCase();
  }
}

Now you can use it inside the template like so.

{{ message | uppercase }}

This is how most of the developers use them. But what if you want to re-use those filters inside the Vue instance.

You can do that too! There’s no need to create additional methods.

All you need to do is call the vm.$options object wherever you need to use your previously created filters.

this.$options.filters.uppercase(this.message)

That’s it! You can now apply your filters inside the Vue instance.

Example:

// ...
methods: {
  resetForm () {
    // ...
    this.message = this.$options.filters.uppercase(this.message)
  }
}
