Component Usages

Create a simple editor in your single component file

Add VueTrix component into *.vue template

    <!-- ... -->
    <VueTrix v-model="editorContent" placeholder="Enter content" localStorage/>
    <!-- ... -->

Integrating with Forms

  <form ...>
    <VueTrix inputId="editor1" v-model="editorContent" placeholder="enter your content..."/>

Props descriptions

  • inputId: This is referenced id of the hidden input field defined
  • inputName: This is referenced name of the hidden input field defined, default value is content
  • placeholder: The placeholder attribute specifies a short hint that describes the expected value of a editor
  • localStorage: The boolean attribute allows saving editor state into browser's localStorage

Populating editor content

Init loading content into the editor

In case, you want to load initial data from database then display into the editor. you can use v-model directive with local component's state.

// Declare local component's state is loaded from database
export default {
  // ...
  data() {
    return {
      editorContent: "<h1>Editor contents</h1>"
  // ...
  // Assign to v-model directive
    <!-- ... -->
    <VueTrix v-model="editorContent"/>
    <!-- ... -->

Track data changes

The local component's state will be changed reactively when you modified contents inside the trix editor UI. Therefore, you need to watch the local state for updating content back to database

export default {
  // ...
  methods: {
    updateEditorContent(value) {
      // Update new content into the database via state mutations.
  watch: {
    editorContent: {
      handler: "updateEditorContent"
  // ...

Binding attachment changes

The <VueTrix/> element emits several events which you can use to observe and respond to changes in editor state.

  • @trix-file-accept fires before an attachment is added to the document. If you don’t want to accept dropped or pasted files, call preventDefault() on this event.

  • @trix-attachment-add fires after an attachment is added to the document. You can access the Trix attachment object through the attachment property on the event. If the attachment object has a file property, you should store this file remotely and set the attachment’s URL attribute.

  • @trix-attachment-remove fires when an attachment is removed from the document. You can access the Trix attachment object through the attachment property on the event. You may wish to use this event to clean up remotely stored files.
