Vue Tip: Watch Nested Values Image

The watch option support a dot-delimited path as key to watch nested values:

<script setup lang="ts">import { watch } from 'vue'import { useRoute } from 'vue-router'const route = useRoute()watch(  () =>,  (queryId) => {    console.log('Route Query ID', queryId)  })</script>

The above example assumes that you are using the Composition API with TypeScript.

If you are using Options API the code looks like this:

<script>export default {  watch: {    // Note: only simple paths. Expressions are not supported.    '$'(queryId) {      console.log('Route Query ID', queryId)    },  },}</script>
