Template Refs with Vuex

Show how to use template refs in conjunction with Vuex for managing state, such as setting focus on an input element based on state changes.
// store.js
import Vue from 'vue';
import Vuex from 'vuex';


export default new Vuex.Store({
  state: {
    shouldFocusInput: false
  mutations: {
    SET_FOCUS(state, value) {
      state.shouldFocusInput = value;
  actions: {
    setFocus(context, value) {
      context.commit('SET_FOCUS', value);
This is the Vuex store definition file. It initializes the Vuex store with a state property 'shouldFocusInput' that controls whether an input should be focused, and corresponding mutations and actions to modify this state.
// main.js
import Vue from 'vue';
import App from './App.vue';
import store from './store';

new Vue({
  render: h => h(App)
This is the main entry file where Vue instance is created and linked with the Vuex store.
  <input ref="myInput" v-model="inputValue">

export default {
  data() {
    return {
      inputValue: ''
  computed: {
    shouldFocusInput() {
      return this.$store.state.shouldFocusInput;
  watch: {
    // Watch for changes in the shouldFocusInput computed property
    shouldFocusInput(newValue) {
      if (newValue) {
        this.$nextTick(() => {
This is the Vue component that includes an input element with a template ref 'myInput'. It watches for changes on 'shouldFocusInput' from the Vuex store, and if focus is requested, it sets the focus on the input element using the $nextTick method to ensure the DOM has updated.
