Vue Tip: Create Custom v-model Modifier Image

v-model has some built-in modifiers like .lazy, .number and .trim. But sometimes, you might need to add your custom modifier.

In this simple demo, I want to create a custom modifier called no-underscore that removes all underscores _ from an input:

<Comp"text" />

Inside our component we can access the modifier via the modelModifiers prop. We manipulate the value if an input event is fired and the modifier is available:

<script setup>const props = defineProps({  modelValue: String,  modelModifiers: { default: () => ({}) },})const emit = defineEmits(['update:modelValue'])function emitValue(e) {  let value =  if (props.modelModifiers['no-underscore']) {    value = value.replace('_', '')  }  emit('update:modelValue', value)}</script><template>  <input type="text" :value="modelValue" @input="emitValue" /></template>

If your v-model binding includes both modifiers and argument then the generated prop name will be arg + "Modifiers":

<template>  <Comp"text" /></template><script setup>const props = defineProps(['name', 'nameModifiers'])defineEmits(['update:name'])</script>

Demo for this code is available at Vue SFC Playground
