How to watch props in Vue.js

in Code Write a comment

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to watch props for changes in Vue.js.

When you pass data as a prop to a component it will be updated reactively. But if you need to call a method or perform some other actions on prop changes this code will help you.

var vm = new Vue({
  el: '#demo',
  props: ['yourProp'],
  data: {
    yourPropChanged: false
  watch: {
    yourProp (val, oldVal) {
      if (val !== oldVal) this.yourPropChanged = true

If the yourProp changes, the yourPropChanged property will become true.
