How to stop mouse event propagation in Vue.js

in Code Write a comment

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to easily stop mouse event propagation (DOM bubbling) in Vue.js.

When you have a Vue.js method called from href tag you’ll experience DOM bubbling. It is a default browser behaviour. When you click on the <a> tag browser will navigate to the href.

Consider this example:

new Vue({
  el: "#app",
  data: { },
  methods: {
  	toggle: function(){
<div id="app">
  <a href="#" @click="toggle()">Click</a>

If you scroll down and click the link it will scroll the page up and bubble the DOM.

Use .prevent or event.preventDefault()

To prevent the default browser behaviour you can use .prevent or event.preventDefault().

<div id="app">
  <a href="#" @click.prevent="toggle()">Click</a>
