[Vue.js] Can i access router query params when defining a route's meta data?

I’m using vue.js Router and setting the meta object field, which is used to set the page title and description.

Right now I set up routes like this:

[…
{
path: ‘/page1’,
component: Page1Component,
meta: {
title: ‘Title for page1’
}
}
…]

and then synchronize this with the DOM:

router.beforeEach((to, from, next) => {
document.title = to.meta.title;
next();
});

One of my routes, to use a query string in the title, but I can’t pass a function to the meta object. Is there a way this can be done, without defining the title in the component?

For example, what I’d want to do:

[…
{
path: ‘/page1’,
component: Page1Component,
meta: (route) => {
title: `dynamic title is ${route.query.param}`
}
}
…]

Solution :

VueRouter doesn’t support setting a route’s meta property to be a function like you’re trying to do.

But you could have the title property be able to also be set as a function which takes in the route as a param:

{
path: ‘/page1’,
component: Page1Component,
meta: {
title: route => `dynamic title is ${route.query.param}`
}
}

And then add a check in the beforeEach hook to set the document.title to the returned value of the title function, in the cases where it is a function:

router.beforeEach((to, from, next) => {
const { title } = to.meta;
document.title = typeof title === ‘function’ ? title(to) : title;
next();
});

Solution 2:

As said in the vue.js router documentation, the to and from objects in navigation guards are both route object, like the $route variable accessible in the component.

Therefore, you can do this :

router.beforeEach((to, from, next) => {
document.title = to.query.param;
next();
});
