Updating VNode data properties

Demonstrates updating the data properties of a VNode to alter attributes like styles or classes dynamically.
// Assume we have a Vue instance with a VNode
var myVNode = new Vue({
  // ... component definition ...

// Function to update the VNode's properties
function updateVNodeData(vnode, newData) {
  // Loop through the new data's properties
  for (var key in newData) {
    // Safety check to make sure the property is actually on the newData object
    if (newData.hasOwnProperty(key)) {
      // Assign new value to the VNode's data property
      Vue.set(, key, newData[key]);

// Example usage of the update function
// First, we need to queue this operation on the next Vue tick after the VNode is rendered
Vue.nextTick(function() {
  updateVNodeData(myVNode, {
    // Update dynamic styles
    style: { color: 'red', fontSize: '20px' },
    // Add a new class
    class: { 'new-class': true }
  // After updating the properties, manually trigger an update
This code snippet provides a function to update the data properties of a Vue Virtual Node (VNode), such as style and class attributes. The updateVNodeData function takes a VNode and an object containing new data properties. It iterates over the new data and sets each property on the VNode's data object using Vue.set for reactivity. The example usage demonstrates invoking the update functionality within Vue.nextTick to ensure the DOM is updated with the new VNode data, and finishes with triggering a $forceUpdate to apply the changes.
